A pair of resolutions related to the Hotel Grim's renovation are the highlights of Monday's regular meeting of the Texarkana, Texas, City Council.
One resolution authorizes a Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs housing tax credit application for the Grim project.
The other reaffirms support for the project, allows the city manager to execute related documents and authorizes "use of committed funds to any person or entity allying with Sari and Company for the project."
The city announced last week that Cohen-Esrey Development Group will join Sari and Co. as co-developers of the Grim, which will become a mixed-use building with office and retail space on the ground floor and affordable apartment units upstairs.
Also on the meeting's agenda are first briefings on the city's Fiscal Year 2019 budget and master fee list.
The council will conduct 11 public hearings, including seven regarding proposed annexations of land into the city limits.
The other hearings concern permits for a microblading business at 3321 Richmond Road and an in-home day care at 2405 Garber St., approval of a site plan for expansion of Texarkana Emergency Center at 4646 Cowhorn Creek Road and the city's annual plan for use of federal Community Development Block Grants.
The agenda includes an open forum during which members of the public may address the council on any topic for up to five minutes each.
The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday at City Hall, 220 Texas Blvd. The complete agenda is available at City Hall or on the city's website at texarkanacitytx.iqm2.com/Citizens/Default.aspx.
