Council is also scheduled to discuss final approval of the Port Neches Economic Development Corporation’s grant not to exceed $22,000 to Vice Ventures LLC, doing business as Polished Image Salon.

Port Neches City Manager Andrè Wimer said, per state statute, that any expenditure in excess of $10,000 requires city council approval.

Two readings of the resolution are required with the first reading scheduled for Thursday and the second for April 21.

The incentive to Vice Ventures LLC will be used for façade improvements for the salon, located at 1002 Magnolia.

Other agenda items include:

  • Discuss and take action regarding the appointments to the Construction Board of Adjustments and Appeals.

Council will consider appointing Danny Marioneaux and Jim English to three-year terms expiring May 7, 2019, and Wayman Williams and Chandon Hartje to one year terms expiring May 7, 2017.

  • Discuss and take action regarding the scheduling of a public hearing on May 5 for curfew for minors.

State statute requires that any city with a juvenile curfew ordinance review the document and the impact of the curfew every three years. The city last took action regarding the ordinance in 2013 at which time they voted to allow the curfew to remain in place. The public hearing will be held at 4 p.m. May 5.
