GLEN ROSE - The Glen Rose City Council held its monthly meeting on Monday night and approved several agenda items, including the repair of the septic system at Glen Rose Animal Care and Control.

Due unspecified causes, two of the three holding tanks at the animal control center have cracks in them. This has caused the septic system to fail. City Administrator, Chester Nolan estimated that the replacement tanks would cost over $6900, but was necessary since the county health department has already informed that City that the system would need to be replaced to stay up to code.

Even though the repairs weren't in the original budget, the council voted unanimously to approve the repairs with funds from the allocated fund balance.

The following agenda items were also approved:

Rezoning 905 SW Barnard St. from a R-1 single family residential zone to a B-1 restricted commercial zone.

Rezoning 809 Jefferson St. from a B-2 general commercial zone to a R-2 single family, two-four family zone.

Authorized a new “Pool Cash” account for the city. The account is suppose to simplify the accounting within the city.

Authorized City Administrator Chester Nolan as the authorized representative for the city’s TEXPOOL investment accounts.

The nominations of Steven Garcia, Barbara Briscoe and Nicole Gilbert to the CVB advisory board with Dave Andres as an alternative.

Authorized the change of the city organizational chart to reflect that the city secretary will report to the city administrator. The city administrator will draft an ordinance to reflect the change to be presented a later council meeting.
