Updating laws and regulations is an important part in keeping a city running smoothly.
Which is why Rosenberg City Council members unanimously voted in favor of updating the stop sign designation ordinance.
At the last regular council meeting, city staff presented an amendment to the stop sign ordinance.
The amendment provides a comprehensive update of all intersections controlled by traffic signals, as well as all stop streets within the city.
While this section of the city’s code is periodically updated with changes adopted by council, a comprehensive update has not been undertaken since 2018.
Since the last update, the city has seen substantial growth and experienced changes in certain roadway configurations.
City staff explained that this update includes the addition of newly developed areas and subdivisions, and modifications made to Avenue H, Avenue I, FM 2218, and FM 2977, where traffic control devices were relocated and/or permanently removed based on engineering plans or studies.
After Public Services Director Rigo Calzoncin explained the ordinance changes, council member Kevin Raines made a motion to updated inventory of all traffic control devices.
The motion was seconded by council member Isaac Davila and passed unanimously.
In other business, council members entered an interlocal agreement for purchasing services with the city of Fulshear for a one-year term.
According to city staff, the Texas Local Government Code authorizes local governments to participate in cooperative purchasing programs with other local governments to purchase goods and services based on contracts currently existing between another local government and a vendor.
These agreements allow local governments to satisfy the competitive bid requirements by purchasing from another local government’s competitively bid agreements for the purchase of goods and services without having to obtain their own bids.
The next regular Rosenberg City Council meeting will be held Jan. 5 via Zoom teleconference call.
Meetings can be watched live on the city’s YouTube Channel “RosenbergTXGov,” on the city’s website at www.rosenbergtx.gov/tv, and on Comcast Channel 16 for residents within the city limits.
