MUNDAY—The Munday City Council approved designating the portion of West Main St. (Hwy. 222) between 9th Street and 12th Street as a no parking zone from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The item was brought forth by Councilman Trey Singleton as a safety procedure recommended by an administrative team of the Munday Consolidated Independent School District.
Consideration of making 9th Street one way going north toward to Munday High School and 10th Street one way south returning to Hwy 222 during the same 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. time period will be discussed at the next meeting.
The council also adopted a resolution to designate the area from Ave. C on the north, S. Bowie on the south, N. Elm on the east and N. 3rd Ave. on the west, as the official boundaries of the city’s downtown district.
In a revised submission to the Texas Department of Agriculture for the downtown revitalization program, the council authorized Mayor Bob Bowen and Mayor Pro-Tem Ryan Cottingham as the city’s authorized agents in all matters concerning the block grant.
In addition, the council approved entering into a contract with the Knox County Appraisal District to collect taxes from Oct. 1, 2020 until Sept. 20, 2021 and named Rhonda Thompson to the EDC B board.
Police Chief Chris Mendoza introduced new officer Dakota Wakefield to the council. Acting on an item brought forth by Cottingham, approval was given to continue to pay the stipend to Mendoza for an additional four weeks or when he completed Whitefield’s training.
The council also decided to re-open city hall with everyone required to wear masks.
City manager David Trevino provided a detailed report on his follow up work concerning violations of city ordinances about trash, abandoned vehicles and high weeds.
