Center City Council meeting

The Center City Council meets in regular session at 5 this afternoon, and among the items for consideration and possible action will be to approve an ordinance of second reading to award electric franchise to Deep East Texas Electric Co-op. The agreement is needed since the co-op does have customers within the city of Center, but does not have a contract with the city. The council is also expected to enter into an inter-local cooperation contract with Texas Department of Public Safety for the Failure to Appear Program through the municipal court; and award sale of tax delinquent property on Garrett Street and Cemetery Street. That’s a meeting of the Center City Council at 5pm today.
