During yesterday’s meeting of the Big Spring City Council, a public hearing was held concerning a specific use permit, without term, in a retail zoning district to allow for a microbrewery located at 1400 and 1404 Scurry St., however, no one from the public spoke.
The bid for a Wheeled Excavator with a 60” Diamond Mower attachment was awarded to Cisco Equipment of Odessa. The bid came in at approximately $20,000 under the other quotes received. It was noted that this piece of equipment would have multiple purposes and would be used in multiple departments. Plus, councilmembers approved a request for a quote from South Plains Association of Governments, also known as SPAG for the TxCDBG Grant Administrator Services. It was noted that SPAG will only be paid if the city is awarded a grant from Community Development Block Grant program for Texas.
