City unveils website that reports progress on projects

Posted

The City of Katy Monday unveiled a new website that enables the public to see the latest on the various projects around the city.

Council Member-at-Large and Mayor Pro Tem Chris Harris said council members expressed a desire for such a site last year in a strategic planning session. The public had questions and such a site would help answer those questions.

Harris said City Administrator Byron Hebert asked Assistant City Administrator Anas Garfaoui to coordinate the effort with appropriate city staff. Now, the site has been launched.

The abbreviated URL for it is https://bit.ly/3IWA9Ti.

Icons mark project sites around the city. Projects are organized by drainage, roads, sewer, water, and walkways.

A drainage project on Y Street, for example, lists the project type, description, funding source, current phase, phase completion, and the latest update.

“Bam, there you go,” Harris said.

The map site unveiling highlighted a meeting in which the council approved a number of bids for various projects. These bids included:

  • A $304,314 bid for street maintenance to Teamwork Construction Services of Houston.
  • A $221,450 bid for a lift station went well rehabilitation project to T Gray Utility Aims, of Cypress.
  • A $228,365 bid for the 11th Street water line replacement project to Cohil Construction Services, of Cypress.
  • A $430,557 bid for ditch regrading and culvert replacement to AR TurnKee construction company of Houston.
  • A $729,287 bid for a storm water pump station at the wastewater treatment plant to ZeusCon of Houston.
  • A $35,106 proposal with Gordian Group for VFW Hall building improvements and upgrades.
  • A $13,457 proposal with Gordian Group for construction of an additional storage closet at the VFW Hall.
  • A $119,355 bid for sanitary sewer rehabilitation to King Solution Services of Houston.

The council also approved a variance to the city ordinance to serve alcoholic beverages at Willy Burger, 6191 Highway Blvd.
