Last month, Rosenberg City Council members evaluated the police chief’s performance. And at Tuesday night’s meeting, council members will consider authorizing an employment agreement with the city for Police Chief Jonathan White.
White has served as chief of police since July 2018. This item was placed on the consent agenda, meaning it will not be discussed.
Council members will also consider authorizing an employment agreement with the city for Danyel Swint to continue serving as city secretary. Swint has served as acting city secretary since March 2018.
According to Communications Director Tanya Kveton, the city manager, police Chief, city secretary, municipal court judge and city attorney all directly report to council. The city manager, police chief and city secretary are evaluated annually, and the judge and attorney are evaluated at the discretion of council.
Kveton noted that City Manager John Maresh’s evaluation is up for review in executive session Tuesday.
“Dependent upon how that goes, it could be brought back for a regular agenda item,” Kveton said.
In other business, council members will consider entering an agreement of support with the city of Sugar Land and Fort Bend County in their efforts to address the erosion of the Brazos River through a new initiative: Project Brazos. According to city staff, erosion along the Brazos River has been an ongoing concern in Fort Bend for many years. The county and the city of Sugar Land have conducted erosion studies to help identify critical locations that are experiencing advanced erosion along the river.
A resolution of support has been requested to assist the efforts of Project Brazos, led by a committee of Fort Bend County commissioners and chief engineer for the Fort Bend County Drainage District. The city of Sugar Land adopted the resolution, which will aid the team in applying for state and federal funds needed to address erosion along the river in Fort Bend County at 13 identified critical locations.
City staff recommends approval of the resolution, which supports the efforts to address erosion issues through Project Brazos.
The meeting is slated to begin at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 2110 Fourth St. Audience members who wish to speak must sign up in advance.
