Dr. Alex del Carmen has trained every chief of police in the state of Texas since 2001.
This expert in racial profiling will speak at the Rosenberg City Council meeting Tuesday to give an analysis report of data collected by the Rosenberg Police Department.
In accordance with the Texas Racial Profiling Data Collection Law, all law enforcement agencies are required to submit a report to their governing body.
The report contains totals on racial profiling data, as well as analysis of the prevalence of racial profiling.
In other business, council members will consider rejecting all bids received in relation to the city’s wayfinding signs project.
This project has been headed by the Rosenberg Development Corp. since 2018. Last month, the RDC received three bids for the project. Of the three proposals, Intrepid Signs in Rosenberg submitted the lowest base bid in the amount of $64,878, which does not include Texas Department of Transportation permitting costs or sign mounting options, city staff said.
Additionally, the proposal did not meet the minimum insurance requirements or provide the required proposal bond.
The remaining two proposals met or exceeded the total project budget of $150,000. The need for wayfinding signs may be driven by tourism, history or economic development, according to city staff. Wayfinding systems operate at three different levels: directional, informative and interactive. The RDC rejected the proposals and are requesting that council do the same.
The meeting will be held via Zoom teleconference at 6:30 p.m.
Citizens will not be allowed to attend council meetings, but can still ask questions via letters, telephone or email.
