City of Brenham is looking for a few good volunteers! August 28, 2018

The City of Brenham is looking for a few good volunteers!

The most effective way for citizens to become involved directly in governmental programs is to volunteer their time to serve on an advisory board. Advisory boards are not legislative bodies and the extent of their authority is contingent upon city ordinances and/or state statutes.

The role of a board member provides citizens an opportunity to make a difference in the community. Citizen advisory boards seek to solve problems, not merely address results. Service on a board takes effort, imagination, courage, innovation, and patience.

If you are interested in serving on one of the City’s 10 advisory boards, please visit the boards page to learn more about each board as well as the application and appointment process! You can also contact City Secretary Jeana Bellinger at 979-337-7567 for information.

Park Projects April 30, 2018

Henderson Park Drainage Channel Repair

Repairs will soon begin on Higgins Branch within Henderson Park. The Higgins Branch Channel slopes, on the east side of N. Park St., failed during the 2016 storm event. The reconstruction of the channel slopes have been designed and bids were accepted on April 10, 2018. The drainage channel will have slope paving with laid back slopes, in place of the straight up and down walls. This will allow for better hydraulics and help prevent future damages. The City plans to award the contract the beginning of May and anticipates construction will take 2 months to complete pending weather and material availability.

Images of slope failure:

During construction, there will be minimal impact to N. Park St. Part of the parking lot off of N. Park Street will be unavailable due to equipment and materials.

Be cautious of your surrounding and stay away from construction zones for your safety and the safety of others.

Infrastructure isn't the only thing being worked on this year in Henderson Park. This month the new playground and swing set near the park pavilion/kitchen was installed.
