COLUMBUS — The Columbus City Council Monday night approved a Board of Adjustment recommendation to allow a manufactured home to be placed at the end of Fannin Street at Texas 71 during its regular monthly meeting.
The home is the first manufactured home brought in to the city under a Texas General Land Office program to help replace homes damaged or destroyed during 2017’s Hurricane Harvey.
The council also heard updates on the water filtration project, and was told the final parts to fix fabrication errors in two of the three filter vessels arrived Monday. One filter vessel has already been assembled after retrofitting by the manufacturer.
In other business, Mayor Lori An Gobert told the council that County Commissioner Darrell Kubesch had asked the city to rake over County Road 2104 that runs along the west side of Crossroads Business Park.
Robert said the city was working to find the original agreements to determine how it was handled when the road was constructed.
She said the road, which is also used as a path to the Colorado County Fairgrounds, was having drainage issues. “We don’t want to take it back until we have that resolved,” she said.
