The Mont Belvieu City Council Monday night approved connecting the water lines on Trinity Drive and Bridgette Lane to address water pressure and stagnation issues. 

Mont Belvieu city spokesman Brian Ligon said the work will probably start in about two weeks and should take six to nine working days.

The work will be performed by city staff and is expected to cost about $10,000 for materials and $7,000 for right-of-way. An alternative to have a contractor do the work would have cost about $50,000.

Emergency Services Director Lee Atchison reported the City has developed its own emergency operations plan. It previously worked under the county’s emergency operations plan.

City Manager Nathan Watkins said the city now has its own contracts with emergency response contractors.

The council also gave final approval for a light industrial building to be built on Interstate 10. The project was previously approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission. Ligon said the developer has not indicated if there is a tenant lined up yet or not.
