BULLARD – Local city leaders have purchased a used sewer truck/vacuum truck to help meet the City of Bullard's needs, and will finance the $99,890 vehicle through Austin Bank.
The bid was awarded to Richardson-based CLS Equipment Co., Inc., with a unanimous vote of the council, while Councilwoman Shirley Coe – an Austin Bank employee – abstained from voting on the agenda item calling for financing the vehicle, said Bullard City Secretary Doris Crockett.
Council members David Rhodes and Ralph Britt were absent from Tuesday's meeting, she noted.
In other action, the council approved a temporary variance from the requirement to construct the south portion of Heritage Springs Drive that is to intersect with FM 344 East, until details can be finalized, as well as approved an amended replat of Heritage Springs Commercial Subdivision, Phase 1 – which includes a correction of ownership of certain property in said subdivision – and accepted infrastructure improvements in the West Ridge Subdivision.
Additionally, Paul E. Feltes III was appointed to the Planning and Zoning Commission to replace Terry Cowan, who recently submitted his resignation after many years of dedicated service on the commission, Crockett said.
