In March, Rosenberg City Council members voted to re-set the May 2 city election date to Nov. 3.

But the council still has to dot some I’s and cross some T’s before the election can officially be moved.

At Tuesday’s meeting, council will consider amending the contract for election services to reflect the change in dates.

The contract provides for the Fort Bend County Elections Administration to coordinate, supervise and handle all aspects of managing the November election, possible run-off election and special charter election.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott proclaimed in March that local governments could move upcoming elections to the next uniform date in November without otherwise adjusting the term of office.

Up for election in Rosenberg are District 1-4 council spots, currently filled by Isaac Davila, Steven DeGregorio, Tim Anders and Richard Olson.

Newcomer Keith Parker also filed for Davila’s District 1 position.

Former council member Susan Euton will challenge DeGregorio for the District 2 position.

Anders will face former council member Alice Jozwiak in the District 3 race.

And Olson will face Marc Morales in a contest for District 4.

In other business, council members will hear the latest quarterly financial and investment reports.

As of March 31, the financial status of the city was stable.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, city staff is projecting a decrease in revenues from sales tax, permits, interest earnings and fines and fees among other sources.

The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Citizens will not be allowed to attend council meetings, but can ask questions via letters, telephone or email.
