Big Spring City Council will meet Tuesday to discuss a number of agenda items, including contracts with a number of firms for consulting services.
In new business, the council is expected to consider approval of an amendment to the John Crane Productions Solutions Inc. lease agreement and authorize the city manager or his designee to execute any necessary documents.
The council is also to consider approval of an agreement with company Maximus for cost allocation consulting services, according to city officials, and allow the city manager or his designee to execute the agreement.
FORSAN â€” School officials here believe it's time Elbow Elementary received an honorable retirement.
The school was first constructed in the early 1930s, replaced two decades later and renovated several times since then. Despite all the upgrades, however, structural issues and simple age have conspired to render the building practically obsolete, educators say.
The solution FISD administrators have devised is a $23.8 construction project, subject to voter approval this May, which will replace Elbow with an elementary campus in Forsan, as well as funding renovations at the secondary campus.
