With the global pandemic edging its way out, the Rosenberg Image Committee will hold its first meeting in nearly a year.
And committee members have a lot to discuss when it comes to planning events.
At Monday’s meeting, committee members will review and discuss Image Committee’s participation in the city’s annual Family 4th Celebration.
According to city staff, this year’s event could take place with the full experience of music, vendors, and fireworks as in pre-pandemic years.
In February 2020, the city entered into a contract with Bayou City Sound for musical entertainment, sound reinforcement, stage lighting, staging, and power for the 2020 Family Fourth Celebration. The selected musical entertainment option was the band Electric Circus, which was also recommended by the Parks and Recreation Board last January.
At a previous council meeting, city staff explained that the termination option was exercised as the event was canceled, with the exception of the fireworks show, due to the pandemic and related health and safety recommendations issued by Fort Bend County Health and Human Services.
But the Bayou City Sound’s contract/quote did provide for a second year option at $18,000.
Committee members will also take action on image beautification and renovation awards for the month of May.
The recognized residents, community groups and businesses chosen work to beautify their properties through renovation and/or landscaping projects and improvements.
The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 2110 Fourth St.
The image committee was designed to develop and implement a beautification and cleanup plan of action to improve Rosenberg’s image in order to help attract economic development and new residents.
Committee members promote a cleaner city through projects, education, and alteration of attitudes and to work with other city committees to improve the image of the community.
Citizens will be allowed to attend the meeting, but must first be screened for symptoms associated with COVID-19, including a temperature check; and must wear a protective mask while in the council chambers.
