Council expected to approve more than $300,000 worth of professional agreements at Monday meeting


City Council may approve a new sublease on the Lake Park marina with Malibu Mimi’s Shaved Ice, as well as $332,550 worth of professional services agreements at Monday night’s meeting.

Malibu Mimi’s is a snowcone stand that serves the Lake Park area, and often takes to the waters of Lewisville Lake to serve boaters. At the meeting, the council is expected to approve the month-to-month sublease of a new slip location on the marina. City Council and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers must approve all subleases of the Lake Park area.

The $332,550 worth of professional services agreements is split into two consent agenda items representing three separate agreements. In one item, the council is expected to approve two bids by Weaver & Tidwell LLC to audit the city’s 2018 and 2019 fiscal years for $91,500 and $93,750 respectively.

The other $147,300 is for Fugro USA Land Inc. to test the construction materials for the newly named Thrive multigenerational center.

Also on the consent agenda is an approval of a continued agreement for ad valorem tax collection between Lewisville and Denton County. The county has been collecting the city’s ad valorem taxes since 1998. Next year, the county will be charging $1 per parcel to collect the tax, up from 82 cents per parcel last year.

The council is also expected to authorize the Main & Mill Business Association to use the estimated $9,000 it collected at last year’s shared table event to fund a mural on the south side of the Beside the Bride bridal shopping store in Old Town. Though the mural would be on private property, it would be visible to the public and as such the city considers this use public art.

Lastly, the council is expected to approve a variance to allow for parking on an unpaved property south of W. Hebron Parkway, just east of the intersection with Railroad Street. Parking there will allow for a canoe and kayak launch site into the Trinity River.

At a 6:30 p.m. workshop session, the council will discuss its water and sewer master plan and use of impact fees.

Lewisville City Council meets the first and third Monday of every month at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 151 W. Church St. in Old Town, usually with a workshop session beforehand starting around 6 p.m. at which the majority of discussion takes place. These meetings are open to the public.
