Council to eye service plan [Times Record News, Wichita Falls, Texas :: ]
(Wichita Falls Times Record News (TX) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) March 03--Wichita Falls City councilors will consider a resolution that will help further development and expansion of city-owned Riverside Cemetery among other items during Tuesday's meeting.
City staff identified EDA Land Planning as the business that could best perform the professional service agreement at a cost of $42,500. The proposed contract stipulates that EDA complete three benchmarks including a predesign report by May 2; an operations, marketing and business plan by July 3; and an illustrative master plan by July 18.
Funding for the contract will come from the Cemetery Perpetual Care Fund's more than $979,000 balance. The city created the revenue source more than 20 years ago to make the cemetery a self-supporting entity.
Councilors will also consider entering a contract with Advanced Business Software to put the Wichita Falls-Wichita County Public Health District closer to its goal of becoming paperless. The contract calls for software installation, data conversion and on-site training for staff at a cost of $21,000, and an annual subscription fee of $63,000; however, the prorated cost for the subscription for the remainder of this fiscal year is $36,750.
Other items on Tuesday's agenda include: An ordinance to approve an easement and right of way request by Oncor that allows the utility to use a portion of Jarrett Park on Lebanon to access alley utilities.
A resolution awarding Wichita Falls Ford Lincoln a bid for four 1/2 -ton pickups for more than $65,000.
A resolution to enter a funding agreement with the Texas Department of Transportation as part of the McNiel drainage improvement project. The state will reimburse the city more than $2.3 million.
