The coronavirus pandemic may have pushed back the Rosenberg City Council election, but that isn’t stopping the city from appointing council members to boards and committees.
The May election was postponed to Nov. 3.
At Tuesday’s council meeting, members will take action on appointments to city boards and committees.
The committees and open slots available are as follows:
Rosenberg Animal Control Shelter Advisory Board (up to three council members);
Image committee (one council member);
Main Street advisory board (one council member ex-officio);
Parks and recreation board (one council member);
Professional services/engineering project review committee (three council positions);
Rosenberg Development Corp. (three council positions);

Currently, council members Jacob Balderas and Steven DeGregorio serve on the animal control shelter advisory board.
Benton serves on the Image committee.
Balderas serves on the Main Street advisory board.
Council member Richard Olson serves on the parks and recreation board.
Council members Kevin Raines, Olson and Balderas serve on the RDC.
Balderas and Olson serve on the charter review committee.
Benton serves on the HOT evaluation committee.
And Raines and Olson serve on the professional services/engineering project review committee.
Council will also vote to select citizens to boards, committees and commissions.
In April, council came to a consensus to advertise for applications for June appointments to the various panels.
They include the planning commission, the image committee, the Main Street advisory board, the parks and recreation board, the RDC, the charter review committee and the HOT evaluation committee.
Planning commission members serve two-year terms.

And HOT committee members serve one year terms.
The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 2110 Fourth St.
Citizens will be allowed to attend council meetings, but must first be screened for symptoms associated with COVID-19, including a temperature check; and must wear a protective mask while in Rosenberg City Hall.
