Municipal Development District (MDD) Meeting January 27, 2021 Update

Supporting Documents for Agenda Items can be found HERE.

Attendance:  Present:   President Byron Bevers, Mike Sorich, David Hoover, Ted Fletcher and Ron Raymaker  

ITEM 4:  Monthly Cash Flow Report-   As requested by MDD, staff has created a visual for a 5-year cash flow projection for the MDD as well as a monthly cash flow report for future agendas.  The projection takes into consideration:  2019-2020 modified revenue projection from COVID, eligible projects per the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP)   and allocated projects that are expected to start construction and complete in 2020-2021.  Discussion only.

ITEM 5: Research Forest/Tamina  Road IH-45 SBFR Right Turn Lane Traffic Impact Study -   The study shows that the construction of a 510’ acceleration lane along southbound I-45 feeder from Research Forest will improve the level of service and reduce delays in both am and pm peak periods. It will also allow the free-flowing movement of right-turning vehicles.  Discussion only.

ITEM 6: Memorial Hermann Water Line Project- After the asbestos cement pipe water line projects were funded at the August 2020 budget workshops, additional ACP was discovered surrounding the Memorial Hermann Hospital’s campus. It would be more cost-efficient to complete all the water line replacements around the hospital as one project. The additional costs are eligible for payment by the MDD at 100% because the improvements would be for the area in and surrounding the hospital which are all commercial. The total estimated cost of design and construction for all ACP water line replacements in 2021 is $1,686,050. Currently $1,170,000 is funded and an additional $516,050 is requested from the MDD.  MDD voted 5-0 to approve the funding.

ITEM 7: MDD Board Appointment - Director Sorich, MDD Secretary, has indicated that he wishes to step down and not complete his current term on the MDD Board. By Ordinance, the presiding officer (President Bevers) appoints a new member to serve out the unexpired term. The appointment will become final following confirmation by City Council. The new member will take their seat in February.    MDD recommends the appointment of Joanna Gonzalez as the replacement to the unexpired term.

ITEM 8:  Election of Officers- Per the MDD bylaws, officers on the MDD Board - President, Vice President and Secretary -   must be elected annually.   MDD voted 5-0 to continue with  President  Bevers and Vice President Hoover and to appoint  Director Raymaker as Secretary.

ITEM  9:  Minutes from September 23 and October 28 Regular  Meetings -  MDD approved the minutes as written by a vote of 5-0.

ITEM 10: Ratification of  October, November and December Accounts Payable-  MDD approved the accounts payable by a vote of 5-0.

Executive Session: none scheduled
