With new council terms comes new responsibility.

At the upcoming Rosenberg City Council meeting on Tuesday, council members will take action on appointments to city boards and committees.

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

The committees and open slots available are as follows:

  • Rosenberg Animal Control Shelter Advisory Board (one council member);
  • Employee benefits committee (one position);
  • Parks and recreation board (one council member);
  • Professional services/engineering project review committee (one position);
  • Rosenberg Development Corp. (one position);

Currently, council member Steven DeGregorio, who was not re-elected for council, serves on the animal control shelter advisory board.

Council member Richard Olson, who lost his election, serves on the employee benefits committee.

Olson also serves on the parks and recreation board and professional services/engineering project review committee. Council members will also appoint a mayor pro tem to serve on council.

Historically, city council appoints a mayor pro tem to serve a one-year term.

Due to the postponement of the May 2020 election date to Nov. 3, council will need to consider appointment of a mayor pro tem to serve until the first meeting date after the May 1, 2021 election. Currently, council member Kevin Raines serves as mayor pro tem.

Council members will also consider designating a representative and an official alternative to the H-GAC assembly.

Mayor Bill Benton and council member Jacob Balderas serve as Rosenberg’s representatives to last year’s assembly.

The H-GAC panel meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 10 a.m., at its offices in Houston.
