On August 11, the Houston City Council held a meeting in which the majority of the topics discussed had to do with the betterment and beautification on the city. One such item was a proposal to make an official archery range in South Park. The DNR has a match grant program that is available to city, county, and regional parks for constructing backstops, fencing, and other features that are essential to developing an archery range. Those involved with the project were hoping to get at least a dozen targets for the range and perhaps get enough financial support to really enhance the archery range’s features.

The council was very supportive of the project, particularly due to the recent ordinance that was put in place disallowing the shooting of a bow and arrow in town. The council also felt that having an archery range could be a big draw for residents and visitors alike. The council gave their approval to the parks and recreation department to proceed with the project and apply for the DNR grant.

Mayor Connie Edwards presented the council with an idea to beautify the city by installing new benches and banners around town. The city’s current banners are worn or missing and the benches are in rough shape. The council agreed that it would be a good decision to replace the items and formed a committee to make a bench recommendation and banner design. The city will be working with Craig Stanislawski of Wild Exhibits, who specializes in signage. Mayor Edwards suggested that the items be paid for with the unexpected additional funds the city received from the sale of plow truck. They were able to sell the plow truck for $6,000 more than they originally anticipated getting for it. New benches and signage would not be installed until next spring.

The council also discussed the Prairie Meadows infrastructure review. According to the memorandum, the Planning Commission is reviewing ways to encourage home construction in the development and increase the tax capacity of the city. City Administrator Chris Peterson is in the process of gathering asbuilt plans for the locations and elevations of the infrastructure. The plans have been made in the past but have since been lost. City Administrator Peterson requested that the council authorize up to $2,000 for Davy Engineering survey the land. The council decided to table the request until further investigation has been done on tracking down the original plans. The council wanted .....
