Rosenberg citizens will elect four council members at the May 2 election. But before the election can be held, Rosenberg City Council members will consider awarding a contract for election services for the 2020 general and special election.

Tuesday’s meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, located at 2110 Fourth St. According to city staff, the contract with Fort Bend County provides for the Fort Bend County elections administrator to run the May 2 city general election and possible run-off election.

The Districts 1-4 council spots are currently filled by Isaac Davila, Steven DeGregorio, Tim Anders and Richard Olson.

Davila and newcomer Keith Parker have filed for District 1 and DeGregorio and Olson have re-filed for their respective positions.

No one has filed for the District 3 position.

Winners will serve two-year terms of office.

Council members are limited to three consecutive terms.

The last day to file for elections is Feb. 14. According to the election contract, the city would pay Fort Bend County for equipment, supplies, services and administrative costs related to the May 2 elections. While the elections administrator would serve as the administrator, the city would remain responsible for the conduct of the election.

The administrator would also provide advisory services in connection with decisions to be made and actions to be taken by the city.

The early voting schedule and the Election Day polling places will be included as exhibits to the contract, city staff noted. Council members will also consider awarding a bid for the sidewalk construction and repair project.

Two bids were received in January for construction on future sidewalk projects. City staff recommends the contract be awarded to base bidder Si Environmental for a unit base bid. According to city staff, this means it is not location specific and other departments can use these prices, such as the utilities department and the Rosenberg Development Corp., for sidewalk related concrete repairs and construction.

The FY20 Public Works budget includes $110,000 for existing sidewalk repair/replacement and the RDC budget includes $300,000 for new sidewalk construction.
