City Facility Reservation, Use Policy On July 7 Council Agenda

The regular meeting of the Sulphur Springs City Council will once again be conducted via teleconference at 7 p.m. July 7, 2020. A recording of the meetting will be available for the general public to view on Youtube. These measures are due to COVID-19 precautions and restrictions. The July 7 agenda, in addition to the regular administrative reports and consent agenda, includes three resolutions, including one which would impact city facility reservation and use.

One of the resolution would approve a 2020 Texas Capital Fund Downtown Revitalization Program Administrative Services Selection.

Another will establish a facility reservation and use policy, and designate certain city facilities available for private use. This follows the City Council’s approval at the regular June meeting for a deposit and rental fee, plus the $65 cleaning fee, for any events scheduled after the meeting; and the $65 sanitation fee to cover the extra sanitation measures taken due to COVID-19 for all events to be held from June 2 moving forward in the Council Chambers.

City Manager Marc Maxwell at the June 2 council meeting said if the council agreed to the fee, city staff would work up a policy that would cover things like use by nonprofits, security and long term versus hourly usage. A policy is now being presented to the council at their next council meeting.

City staff will also ask the City Council to consider authorizing the establishment of a small business assistance program in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the City Council streamed meetings, a phone number will be provided to allow community members to speak to the council where allowed.
