WE HAVE NO ONE WANTING TO STEP UP.

LET'S GIVE IT A COUPLE OF MINUTES.

OKAY.

SOMEBODY IS ON THEIR WAY.

THERE SHOULDN'T BE A PROBLEM.

GETTING THROUGH AS THE NO THROUGH TRAFFIC SIGNS HAVE BEEN REMOVED.

JACOBSON WAS QUITE COOPERATIVE ON THAT AD DID NOT HAVE A CLUE.

HE PUT IT COOL.

AND WHAT, UM, WHO PUT UP THE NO THROUGH TRAFFIC? WELL, WE'RE WAITING IN CASE ANY PUBLIC OR WHATEVER.

PROBABLY BACK WHEN THEY WERE GOING TO RENOVATE.

REMEMBER THEY WERE DRAGGING OLD FURNITURE.

I'M TO MAKE SOME KIND OF THING.

DIRECT AUTO.

WHEN THAT WAS, IT WAS GOD WAS GOING TO MAKE THEATER DRAGGING STUFF AND OH, THAT THAT'S CAUSE JOHN THAT'S, THEY WERE JUST DRAGGING THE OLD SEATS OUT OF THE OLD THEATER.

OKAY.

HE HAD ORDERED SOME FROM CHINA.

OKAY.

I HAVE WHAT TIME? SIX OH THREE COUNSEL.

ALL RIGHT.

I HAVE SIX OH FIVE COUNCIL I'M HERE BACK CALLING A ITEM B, UH, CLOSED THE PUBLIC HEARING, UH, IS THIS POINT CLOSED? MOVING ON TO ITEM C DISCUSSION AND CONSIDER DISCUSS HER AND, AND CONSIDERATION

[00:05:02]

OF, UH, I CAN'T DO THAT.

STEVE, PLEASE LET ME DISCUSSION AND CONSIDERATION ORDINANCE 20, 20 DAYS 31 ADOPTING THE CITY OF METIS PLACE FOR MUNICIPAL BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR WHEN HE 20 DASH 21.

AND JUST A COUPLE OF QUICK COMMENTS, AT LEAST I GOT TO READ THIS FIRST.

GO AHEAD.

YUP.

YUP.

TO APPROVE ORDINANCE 20, 20 DASH 31 ADOPTING THE MUNICIPAL BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR 20, 20 DAYS 21.

THIS BUDGET WILL RAISE MORE REVENUE FROM PROPERTY TAXES THAN LAST YEAR'S BUDGET BY AN AMOUNT OF $238,522, WHICH IS 7.9% INCREASE FROM LAST YEAR'S BUDGET.

THE PROPERTY TAX REVENUE TO BE RAISED FROM THE NEW PROPERTY ADDED TO THE TAX ROLL.

THIS YEAR IS 1,485.

NOW WE CAN HAVE DISCUSSION BEFORE I CALL A ROLL VOTE.

SO THIS TIME WE HAVE A COUPLE OF POINTS THAT WE NEED TO CLARIFY.

SO ONE COMMENT IS THERE IS A FORMULA BUST ON THE DIFFERENCE FROM PRIOR YEAR AND ROMEO WOULD GET THAT CORRECTED AND SENT BACK OUT.

UM, IT DOESN'T REALLY CHANGE THE OVERALL WHERE WE ARE ON THE BUDGET, WHICH I BELIEVE IS LAST.

I SAW A SLIGHT POSITIVE IN INCOME, OVER EXPENSES.

THAT'S STILL THE CASE.

MMM.

WE DID RECEIVE AN EMAIL FROM NICK THIS WEEK THAT SAID OUR SALES TAX WAS 14% ABOVE EXPECTED OR ABOVE LAST YEAR.

I MEAN, ABOVE BUDGETED FOR THIS YEAR.

UM, I'M GOING TO RECOMMEND, WE DON'T MAKE ANY CHANGES TO THAT NUMBER, THAT BUDGETED NUMBER FOR US BECAUSE WE DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT YEAR.

WHAT I THINK, WHAT I THINK IS HAPPENING FROM OTHER DISCUSSIONS IS THE MONEY THAT WAS GOING TO BE SPENT IN BRICK AND MORTARS IS NOW BEING BROUGHT TO US BY AMAZON.

AND IT'S GENERATING MORE SALES TAX FOR THE CITY VERSUS WHAT WOULD HAVE NORMALLY GONE TO SUGAR LAND, MISSOURI CITY.

THE COVID IS ACTUALLY BRINGING IN MORE MONEY TO OUR CITY THAN A LOSS, WHICH WE HAD ORIGINALLY EXPECTED.

WE ARE STILL SEEING THE DEDUCTION IN FINES AND FORFEITURES JUST BECAUSE WE'RE NOT WRITING AS MANY TICKETS OUT THERE ON 45 OR ON, ON A AIRPORT JUST TO MINIMIZE OUR CONTACT OF OUR OFFICERS.

SO WE DON'T LOSE IT.

WE ALSO HAVE A DELAY IN OUR COURT SYSTEM, WHICH WE HAD TO DO WELL.

SO ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS ON THE BUDGET AT THIS TIME? OKAY.

THEN I WILL NOW CALL THE NAME OF EACH COUNCIL MEMBER UP.

I'M SORRY.

NEED A MOTION MOTION.

I SHOULD REMEMBER IT SECOND BY JOHN.

OKAY.

I WILL NOW CALL THE NAME OF EACH COUNCIL MEMBER BY NAME TO RECORD TO TAKE THE RECORD VOTE.

ONCE YOUR NAME IS CALLED ANSWER, ADD TO SIGNIFY APPROVAL OR NATIVE SIGNIFIED, DISAPPROVAL ALDERMAN BEZNER STATE YOUR VOTE.

YEAH.

DID YOU GET THAT ALDERMAN MILLS? ALDERMAN STAGLIN.

ALDERMAN IS BILL ALDERMAN.

KAPUSCINSKI I LET THE RECORD REFLECT THAT EVERYONE, UH, EVERY MEMBER IS HERE AND DID VOTE.

MMM.

MOTION CARRIED AND WE WILL NOW MOVE THE NEXT ITEM ON THE, YEAH.

OKAY.

THIS IS A LITTLE BIT CHANGE HERE, COUNSEL.

UM, THIS IS THE FIRST GREETING OF A RESOLUTION NUMBER 2020 DASH 38, IDENTIFYING KIRKWOOD RE ROAD REHABILITATION PROJECT AND APPROVING SLASH RATIFYING THE PREVIOUS, UH, AND FUTURE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION EXPENSES, NOT TO EXPEDIA EXCEED 1,350,000 FOR THE KIRKWOOD ROAD REHABILITATION PROGRAM.

UH, PROJECT, LET ME KNOW OVER HERE SO I CAN READ THIS RESUME.

OH, IT WAS HIDING.

OKAY.

[00:10:01]

RENTAL SOLUTION NUMBER 2020 DASH 38.

THIS IS THE FIRST READING OF A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL, A CITY MEADOWS PLACE IDENTIFYING THE KIRKWOOD ROAD PROJECT REHABILITATION IS PROJECT AND APPROVING THE EXPENDITURE OF $1,350,000 FOR THE KIRKWOOD ROAD REHABILITATION PROGRAM.

UM, AND I BASICALLY, UH, AM LOOKING FOR A MOTION AND A SECOND AT THIS TIME, MOTION MAVERICK TO APPROVE THAT CAN SECOND BY KURT.

CAN YOU DISCUSSION? AND JUST FOR CLARIFICATION FOR EVERYONE, THIS IS NOT ADDITIONAL MONEY.

MUCH OF THIS MONEY HAS ALREADY BEEN SPENT.

THIS IS JUST RECAPTURING WHAT THE TOTAL AMOUNT IS GOING TO BE, OR THE EXPECTED TOTAL AMOUNT I SHOULD SAY.

UM, ANNA MARIE AND I STILL NEED TO MEET, WE THINK THEY MIGHT HAVE ONE MORE YEAR OF PAYMENTS.

WE STILL NEED TO DO FINAL ACCOUNTING, GET THE FINAL NUMBERS.

UM, BUT TRUTHFULLY IT LOOKS LIKE EDC IS ALMOST DONE, UM, PAYING FOR THE KIRKWOOD PROJECT RIGHT NOW.

AND SO THEY MIGHT HAVE ANOTHER 150,000 PLUS OR MINUS NEXT YEAR.

UM, I'M SORRY IF THEY'VE ALREADY PROGRAMMED IN THE 2021 BUDGET, CORRECT? CORRECT.

AND SO WE'LL, YOU NEED TO FIGURE OUT IF THEY OWE ANYTHING IN 2022, THAT'S WHAT THE FINAL ACCOUNTING WILL BE.

WE DON'T THINK THEY WILL.

CORRECT.

UM, AND JUST, I WANTED TO MAKE SURE EVERYBODY DIDN'T THINK WE WERE GOING TO GO SPEND AN ADDITIONAL 1.3 ON THIS PROJECT.

YEAH.

THIS IS WINDING DOWN AND WRAPPING UP.

ALRIGHT, SO WE HAVE A MOTION AND WE HAD A SECOND ALL IN FAVOR.

AYE.

ANY OPPOSED HEARING? NONE MOTION CARRIES UNANIMOUSLY, UH, MOVING ONTO THE NEXT ITEM ON THE AGENDA, UH, WHICH IS, UH, ITEM E.

THIS IS DISCUSSION CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTION 20, 20 DAYS 39, AUTHORIZING THE MAYOR TO SIGN INTO AN AGREEMENT WITH ABR FOR NEW CLOUD BASED SYSTEM COUNCIL.

THIS IS WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT WHEN WE HAD MET OVER THE EOC, UH, FOR ALL THE UTILITY PAYMENTS AND THINGS TO, UH, UH, WE HAVE SOME ISSUES WITH THAT.

WE'LL NOW BE MOVING TO THE CLOUD.

UH, THERE'S SOME VERY, THERE'S SOME BENEFITS THAT, UH, WAS THIS THE ZERO COST ONE OR IS THIS THE ONE WITH THE 5,000, $10,000 RANGE THOUSAND FOR TRAINING, BUT WE DON'T THINK THERE'S A, A COST OVER WHAT WE'RE CURRENTLY PAYING, RIGHT.

FOR THOSE THAT ARE AT HERE, WASHINGTON WAS, IS THIS A COSTING OR A SHIFT OVER AT NO COST? WE ALREADY DO BUSINESS WITH ABR.

ABR IS MOVING US INTO A CLOUD BASED SYSTEM AT NO ADDITIONAL R DOLLAR COSTS.

THERE WILL BE THAT $3,000 OF TRAINING ON THE NEW SYSTEM, WHICH I'M THRILLED WITH BECAUSE WE'VE GOT A NEW PERSONNEL AND WE'LL ALL CATCH UP.

UM, AND WE'VE ALREADY BUDGETED THAT, MOVED TO APPROVE MOTION BY RICK SECOND BY JOHN, ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION, ALL IN FAVOR, AYE.

ANY OPPOSED THAT MOTION CARRIES UNANIMOUSLY, UH, THAT MOVES US ON TO ITEM F MOTION BY RICK ONLY I WILL SMOKE THE SECOND BACK, HURT ALL IN FAVOR.
