At the Rosenberg City Council workshop meeting Tuesday, Code Compliance Director Robert Kinsey will present the ordinance responsible for limiting the height of grass and weeds in the city.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. or immediately after a special Rosenberg City Council meeting at 6:20 p.m.

Currently, the ordinance provides for property owners to maintain vegetation in adjoining rights-of-way, city staff noted. While the ordinance does not specify alleys, it has always been interpreted as including alley rights-of-way and the city has not encountered issues with that interpretation.

Recently, however, it has been suggested the ordinance could be clarified in case it is ever questioned whether the requirement includes alleys.

City staff has revised the ordinance to include maintenance of alleys. If council is favorable to the ordinance amendments, this item will come back to council for formal approval. In other business, Parks and Recreation Director Darren McCarthy will present to council various entertainment services the city can use for the 2020 event.

“We’re planning on going out for bids on both the fireworks and entertainment contracts later this year and we may or may not end up with new companies depending upon how the quotes come back in,” McCarthy said.

Council members will also review the Rosenberg Development Corp. fiscal year 2020 sidewalk projects. RDC members designated $300,000 toward sidewalk projects.

Listed are the projects and their estimated cost: Eighth Street from Avenue N to Parrott Avenue, $46,220; Parrott Avenue from Fourth Street to Eighth Street, $65,940; Millie Street from Avenue H to Avenue I, $22,240; and Avenue I from Millie Street to Radio Lane, $128,780.

“We’ve held multiple internal meetings with staff to identify areas that not only meet the qualifications we have to meet, but also are current needs in the city,” Interim Director of Economic Development Jeremy Heath said at the October RDC meeting.
