Attendance: Present:  Mayor Ritch Wheeler, Mayor Pro Tem Charlie Bradt (Position 4),  Ted Fletcher (Position 2) and Ron Raymaker (Position 1)  Absent:   Mike McLeod (Position 5),  John Escoto (Position 3)  

ITEM 7:  Municipal Development District (MDD) Monthly Report  - No action required; report only.

ITEMS  8: Lifetime Fitness Amenity Changes- LifeTime Fitness,  l 9000 and 9002 Six Pines Drive, proposes a redesign of the fitness club with the following changes: removal of the entire fourth level tennis program at the parking garage, removal of entire third level link and associated tennis program between fitness club and parking garage and revision of building signage and site monument signage to remove tennis logo. LifeTime Fitness advised the redesign is based upon evaluating the costs of their proposed programming and their ability to remobilize this year and complete the project in 2023. The remaining floor plans and site plan have remained largely similar to what was provided in the approved SUP.  Council voted 3-0 to approve the changes.

ITEM 9: Bank RFA Policy -  At the June 23 meeting, Council requested that staff move the planned Request for Application (RFA) for banking services from this fall to immediately. In accordance with Chapter 105 of the Texas Local Government Code, the city must adopt a policy and resolution that states that the city can and will accept applications from banks that are outside the city limits. This does not disqualify banks within the city limits but allows for a greater number of applications to be accepted to ensure the city can accept the best offer.   Council voted 3-0 to approve the policy and resolution.

ITEM 10:  Montgomery County Election Services- Staff budgeted $11,000 for election services in the 2020-2021 budget. Because there were no other entities sharing in this year’s election, the cost came in over the budgeted amount and over the City Administrator’s purchasing authority. This item requires Council approval to be paid. The total amount due is $15,744  Council voted 3-0 to approve payment.

ITEM 11: Texas Municipal League Intergovernmental Risk Pool ( TMLIRP) Re-rate -    TMLIRP is the City’s insurance company and each year the City must review the coverage limits and inform TMLIRP of any requested changes. The re-rate exposure was reviewed by the City Attorney several years ago and changes were suggested based on legal limitations.  Council voted 3-0  to approve the re-rate.

ITEM 12: Approval of May 12 and May 26 Minutes-  Council voted 3-0 to approve both of the minutes.

ITEM 13: Ratification of June Accounts Payables-  Council voted 3-0 to approve the accounts payable.
