Council briefed on construction

 

New construction took a large portion of discussion at the special city meeting held Sept. 2 at City Hall. Two existing businesses are getting an upgrade and a change of address. City manager Raymie Zella briefed council on plans for HEB and McDonald’s.
 
“I’ve had one meeting with the engineer for the (HEB) project,” said city manager Raymie Zella. “He informed me that they have hired a general contractor and an architect for the HEB. [...] You’re going to start seeing or hearing a lot more about HEB. It’s coming.”
 
Earlier in the meeting, council motioned to take action to vacate and abandon an alley that was deemed “no longer  useful or convenient to the public” and “an unnecessary expense to the city.”
