We were honored to have Mineral Wells City Manager Dean Sullivan speak at today's meeting. Dean discussed ongoing projects, including the development of Mineral Wells Regional Airport and the Turkey Peak reservoir project.
But the really good news is that one of the first things Sullivan as city manager tackled, and accomplished, is an interlocal agreement with Palo Pinto County Commissioners to begin improving city streets. The city will provide the engineering and materials, and all four county commissioners will provide the equipment and manpower for improvements designated in their precincts within the city. In the last quarter of this fiscal year about 4 miles will be repaired, with plans to do 25 miles of streets each year so that in five years all 132 miles of city-maintained streets will be repaired.
The county agreement will address streets where subgrade infrastructure repairs are not needed. Sullivan said about 25 miles of streets need water and sewer repairs below the street and will require the city to make those upgrades. Still, Sullivan said residents will soon begin seeing roads and streets improved.
Mineral Wells City Council approved the interlocal agreement Tuesday. County commissioners approved the agreement last week. Thank you Dean Sullivan for making this happen and bringing the city and county together in this partnership. Thank you city council and county commissioners for approving the agreement.
Attending the meeting with Sullivan were Mineral Wells Economic Director David Hawes and Finance Director Jason Breisch. Rotarian Tonya Gary was this week's program chair.
