TDEM Mitigation Grant Application - The City is applying for grant funding through the Texas Department of Emergency Management for improvements to the East Side Relief Pond. The total project is expected to cost $22,981,500. The City received a letter from Governor Abbott stating the 75% state-25% municipality match was being waived. The project still requires a letter stating how the 25% match on the local level would be met if FEMA provides funding for the project. The 25% match for this project would be $5,7453,750. Council voted 5-0 to approve a funding source .
