vehicles on Martindale Lane.

Lane to slow down.

                        AUGUST 10, 1987

Marshal Carter reported that the speeding on Martindale Lane had slowed
down. This was due to the friendly talks by the Marshall to those guilty of
speeding.




                                                                          1

Brian Frazier again asked the council to approve the final plat of Highland
Meadows sub-division. Mr. Frazier will build roads to county
specifications.
Mr. Rattan in a telephone conversation with Mayor Layfield strongly
advised the City seek legal counsel.
Mr. Frazier stated “the Veteran’s Land Board will not approve loans for
land purchases in sub-divisions where roads are not paved.
If the City Council agrees to approve the final plat, we are saying the
roads are completed when they are not. The job could possibly remain
unfinished. A law suit against the City is not out of the question.
Mr. Dickey state he did not agree with approval until the roads are
completed. Mr. Frazier stated, “His roads were up to county
specifications”.
Mr. Stewart said he would rather see legal counsel.
Motion was made by Councilman Tony Dickey that we get legal
counsel, seconded by Councilman John Judge. Motion carried
unanimously.
Mayor Pro Tem Latham assured Mr. Frazier Council would proceed in an
expeditious manner, so as not to hold Mr. Frazier in abeyance too long.

                   OCTOBER 10, 1995

The meeting was called to order by Mayor Layfield.
The Council was given a copy of Ordinance drafted by Attorney Dan
Williams. The understanding of this Council was as follows
A) The original draft was read at this meeting and there would be the need
to have the draft read and or changed with two or more writings before it
would be formally adopted by the Council.
B) This was accepted by all present Mayor Layfield states she would
redraft the changes and send to Mr. Dan Williams for the second draft.
C) One of the main contentions of agreement of all council members was
the road conditions at time of acceptance.
D) The need to define what was a paved road according to county
specifications and the standard for this to be maintained.
E) What options would be need if this was not passed with a majority
vote.

                  NOVEMBER 13, 1995

The meeting was called to order by Mayor Layfield the meeting was first
addressed by Scott Neeley with a prepared statement that was asked to be
entered in the minutes as follows:
A) Two months ago he first entered into the discussion with the council
concerning five (5) blue lines for plat acceptance by the council as of this



                                                                               2
     date the new Ordinance is not into place and agreement with the developer
     has not been met to provided legal documents for landowners.
     Mr.Neeley stated other developers in this area were not having this
     problem.
     B) The question put to Mr. Neely was acceptable of the road by the
     existing landowners? They had voiced some dissatisfaction as to their
     completion. The question arose as Centel Telephone not being able to
     obtain right of way to lay cable for service because it crossed some
     property
     2) Robert Latham, Pro Tem asked how long it would take to get this
     drawn up to everyone’s satisfaction.

     Mr. Tom Lange resident stated the homeowners association that circulated
     a petition of intent to all residents which stated as follows:

     A) The road must be to Wise County specifications
     B) A letter of intent was needed by the developer and a penalty of
     $1,000.00 per day would be assessed past the agreed timeframe.
     C) Each landowner would agree to pay a yearly fee of $500.00 to be
     collected by the City of Fairview to maintain the roads after completed by
     County Specification.
     D) The list consisted of 21 persons for the agreement and 19 against.
     E) The Phase 1 was completed but not up to their expectations of promise
     by the by the developer said at this time was adequate only it is still not
     ready for rural mail delivery or school bus. This is essential before final
     plat will be signed by city.

                                1997

                       FEBRUARY 10, 1997

     Terri Olson requested to speak on the letter she had written to DAK
     Investment concerning the many problems the new residents were having
     getting the roads finished plus other items that were in their original
     contracts. She stated the Texas Veteran Land Board would be willing to
     listen. The more complaints they heard the better the chances of getting
     heard. She requested more people need to write in as she, had to get
     results.

                          March 10, 1997

2.   The City received a letter from Scott Neely explaining the roads in Phase
     II and III would be completed by Mid April 1997 as agreed. This was in
     response to the certified letter sent to him the previous month. He also
     sent a new performance bond to extend the time on the road completion.




                                                                                 3
3.   Mayor Robert Latham talked to Jerry Fluche, the County Commissioner of
     our area concerning the road maintenance in our city.
     The City would need to pay a minimum fee of $3,000.00 per year to
     maintain roads not paved outside the Chisholm Hill area alone.

                           APRIL 14, 1997

5.   Phillip Hawkins questioned the County Road Tax and how it was used in
     our County. We were told there was a limited amount to be spent on the
     hundreds of roads in our county. Jerry Fluche the elected Commissioner
     for our area stated he would do all he could to the keep the roads in as
     much upkeep as was allowed in his limited budget.

7.   A Zoning Ordinance would be on the next month’s agenda to obtain
     guidelines on Zoning. This would be as follows:
            4) Width of Street

                           MAY 27, 1997

4.   The streets in Phase I are still not stable and are deteriorating rather
     rapidly. The Council will look at other road restrictions with the new Sub-
     division Ordinances passed by the County. The Council will obtain a
     copy at a cost of $15.00 to see if they may be of any help to our city.

8    A Zoning Ordinance was touched on and would be discussed at the next
     meeting.
            4) Width of Street

                            JUNE 9, 1997

     OLD BUSINESS

2.   A letter will need to be sent to Scott Neely asking for a copy of the road
     specification he is using in the Sub-Division Chisholm Hills. The City
     Secretary will get such a letter to the Mayor to sign.

     NEW BUSINESS

2.   The Ordinance concerning the roads was discussed again and all agreed
     the need to have them put in for the duration of not less than twenty (20)
     years. with minimal maintenance.
     The only type of road to meet those qualifications would be concrete.




                                                                                  4
                          JULY 14, 1997

7.   Henry Taylor spoke on the condition in Phase I of the road problem.
     We reminded him the city does not have equipment to maintain the roads
     and the road fee which would be imposed has not gone in effect because
     of not getting an accurate list of residents from the tax off.

                          JULY 31, 1997

3.   The issue of concrete roads was put on the table at this meeting for
     discussion. This is a vital part of keeping any new developer from putting
     in the least expensive roads he can, not giving the residents what was
     stated in the sales pitch.

                         AUGUST 11, 1997

     OLD BUSINESS
2.   Mayor Robert Latham stated he had talked to the engineer from the
     Developer’s office and had requested drawings on the erosion control
     along with other information. To date the developer has not responded to
     any of our certified letters. Phase I and II are still not up to the
     specifications originally stated. We will discuss this with the Lawyer to
     see if and/or what kind of legal status we have.

     NEW BUSINESS
1.   The Mayor will contact Commissioner Jerry Fluche to obtain a copy of the
     old County specifications before they were revised. This will help to see
     if any of the old rules may have been overlooked in the process of the
     roads being constructed.

                       SEPTEMBER 8, 1997

     OLD BUSINESS
3.   The street paving issue was brought to the table.
     L & W Contractors of Granbury we were told would start Phase II & III
     around the first of September possibly the middle of the month.
     To date this has not happened.
     Work can not be done after Mid-October due to the temperature issue.
     The work will need to be delayed again until in the spring.




                                                                                 5

           OLD BUSINESS
     2.    Mayor Robert Latham has talked to Scott Neely concerning the road
           conditions in Chisholm Hills.
           Mr. Neely has stated the dead line of Sept. 30, 1997 could not be met for
           several reasons. One being the contractor not being able to get the proper
           size of road base because of a shortage that has been felt in our area.
           The new Contractor I.D.J. owned by Cary Allison, spoke with the Mayor
           and he agreed he could not put asphalt on the roads when the temperature
           dropped below 50 degrees, dirt work would start as soon as possible.
           The City approved the time frame change because of the rock issue and a
           letter was sent to Mr. Scott Neely.
           Mr. Neely stated when the final paving was finished a bond that will equal
           one year maintenance will be given to the city. According to the engineers
           drawings there are several flaws in the drawings we will need to address to
           Mr. Neely.
           The Mayor will make scaled maps for the City Inspector.

                             DECEMBER 8, 1997

           NEW BUSINESS
     4.    We have asked that Mr. Telford, our Attorney, draft a letter to the
           developer concerning the roads in Chisholm Hills. To date every letter
           written or phone call has met with silence. They are past the deadline for
           doing the work promised to the city in contract. The roads have never
           been deeded to the city. This is required by law for the city to takeover
           and maintain. It has not happened.

B.     The Attorney discussed the breach of contract with the developer in
       the Chisholm Hill Sub-Division.
       He explained the roads were never accepted by the City because they
       were never brought to County or City Specification; therefore the
       roads remain private roads owned solely by the developer.

III    CONSENT ITEMS
       A.  MAYOR’S REPORT
           6.    The City has the option of extending road requirements to the extra
                 territorial jurisdiction. However, the county can control it as much
                 as the city. If the City tries to control the ETJ then it would
                 become liable and could not recover any cost for the engineering
                 or attorneys.

            the City that own trucks.

V.     OLD BUSINESS
       C.   Discuss, Consider and Act on the Ordinance Limiting the Weight of
            Vehicles on Residential Street
            Councilwoman Noll did research at several other cities. She presented
            copies of their ordinances for the City Council to review.
            The City of Watauga presently has a weight limit of 20,000 pounds.
            They had originally started with a limit of 7,000 pounds, but found that
            too hard to enforce.
            The City of Rhome also has a limit of 20,000 pounds.
            The City of Justin currently has a 24,000 pound weight limit.
            Ray Cunningham who owns property on Martindale expressed his
            concerns about a 50 x 60 truck shop that he has on his property. He plans
            to move to the location in the future and was going to us the shop to work
            on his truck and store it during inclement weather. He is wondering how
            this ordinance will affect him.
            Doug Mitchell discussed the Over Weight Permit that truck drivers can
            purchase from the Department of Transportation. This allows the truck
            driver to drive on roads that are over the weight limit without paying fines.
            Mr. Gardner suggested that the ordinance be for per axle limits, because
            the weight can be distributed over the entire truck. He also expressed
            concern about how ordinance would affect his company that constructs
            steel-frame houses.
            Councilwoman Scales made a motion to table the Ordinance.
            Councilwoman Matthews seconded the motion.

           Councilman Wilson presented a handout with information he had
           concerning the item. He read the handout to the audience.
           Councilwoman Scales expressed her desire to help Councilman Wilson
           with this endeavor.

                    Final Plat for Sky View Ranch about roads
            Mr. Landes discussed the difference between the stabilized limestone
            streets on the plat and the lime stabilized ground required by the
            subdivision ordinance. Councilwoman Scales agreed with Mr. Landes
            that the limestone street would be a better street. She has talked to
            five other engineers and three of them had said that it would be a
            superior street to what the current ordinance mandates.
            The Final Plat will be presented in its entirety at the August 30, 1999,
            Special Council Meeting.

                              DECEMBER 13, 1999

V.    CONSENT ITEMS
        A. Mayor’s Report
           He reported that the Texas Department of Transportation has
           recommended that Decatur receive $300,000 grant for major
           improvements to sidewalks and crosswalks on the Courthouse Square.
           Bill Nelson explained that this project went back to ICETEA a six-year
           program (1992) divided federal money into funds for different work. One
           category was enhancement projects, was to use transportation money to
           make improvement on transportation facilities such as bus depots or train
           depots. This will help meet the American with Disabilities Act.
           The Mayor stated that this was unwise of the Federal Government to
           spend this money in such a manner, instead of fixing roads where people
           were getting killed.
           Mr. Nelson suggested that comments be sent to Federal Representatives.
           Councilman Wilson asked several questions.
           In March Mr. Nelson came out and talked about the access road being
           one-way.
           In September, the feeling was that it would not be made two-way.
           TX Dot is waiting for Texas A&M to complete a study of the access roads
           on Interstate 20. He is waiting for a meeting with Mr. Simmons. He
           asked for what information the City needs to make the road two ways.
           The state has been concerned about the road being too dangerous.
           However, there are many roads in the area that are two ways:
           Rhome, Arlington by Texas Stadium, and Haltom City by Loop 820.
           The Church next to City Hall is growing and does not have an official
           driveway. A nursery being built will also not have a good driveway.
            The City would like to make a better presentation to the State for two-way
           access roads.
           Mr. Nelson said that the City needed to contact Mr. Simmons to meet




                                                                                   14
             Councilman Wilson added that Farm to Market Road 407 and 2264 are
             also of concern.
             One thousand families live on Farm to Market Road 2264.
             Farm to Market Road 407 has an extremely dangerous corner at the county
             line.
             Mailboxes on both roads are placed on the road are extremely dangerous.
             Can the City or TXDoT do something about moving these?
             Mr. Nelson said the FM 2264 accidents are not being reported and
             investigated by DPS.
             All of these accidents need to be reported so that the road can demonstrate
             a higher than average amount of accidents.

             State Highway 114 from the Wise County Line to Rhome has not been
             funded. The right-of-way has been purchased. As soon as the engineering
             plans are completed and turned in the money should be made available.

             State Highway 114 from Interstate 35 to Farm to Market Road 156 has
             been moved up. It will be done in two sections. The second section from
             Farm to Market Road 156 to the Denton County Line is still low of the list
             of projects.

IV:   ACTION ITEMS
      C.   Discuss, Consider, and Act on Weight Limits on Streets
           Councilwoman Noll said that she had driven the streets and made notes.
           She had done research and presented the Council with copies of
           ordinances from other cities. She felt that the damage was caused by other
           sources: school bus and garbage trucks.

             The Mayor stated that not every street is the same. The ordinance needs to
             be in place prior to new streets being in place. This will let prospective
             buyers know that they will not be able to drive large trucks onto the street
             before they buy property.

            Councilwoman Scales made a motion to table the ordinance until the
            ordinance can be broken down into street types. Councilwoman
            Matthews seconded the motion.
            Votes:       Ayes: Councilman Wilson, Councilwoman Scales,

VI.   PUBLIC INPUT FOR ITEMS NOT LISTED ON THE AGENDA

      Councilman Wilson spoke as a citizen regarding an article from the Fort
      Worth Star Telegram. The article was regarding street repairs in Haltom
      City. The city did not have the funds to repair the streets; therefore each
      citizen who lived along a street that was to be repaired had to pay for a
      portion of the repairs. Mr. Wilson also addressed the Council about
      starting a petition for repairing Farm to Market Road 407. The petition
      could be left at City Hall.

                           MARCH 6, 2000

A.    Discuss, Consider, and Act on Chisholm Hills Phase III
      The Mayor expressed the need for replatting of a section of Phase III that
      involved water well being placed at the end of Creasser, which is currently
      shown as a road right-of-way. The gas pipeline on Layfield and Stewart is
      drawn incorrectly. A gas well was dug in the middle of Stewart, and it
      needs a barricade. Latham and Lange both have high culverts that need
      guardrails to keep people from driving off the road. He would also like
      other streets to be cored so that the City can accept them.

      Councilwoman Noll expressed her concern that we were looking at Phase
      III, when streets in Phases I and II were not finished.

      Rob Crabtree representing Johnson County Oaks that in January 1996 the
      City signed an agreement with the developer concerning the roads in
      Chisholm Hills. The City at that time agreed to assume the maintenance
      requirements and agreed to take over those roads and take over Phase II
      and III, as they were finished.
      A road tax was accessed at that time. Phase I was finished in 1994.
      The roads were approved by the Wise County Commissioner.
       Mr. Crabtree will give the City $50,000 to improve the roads and accept
      them. The roads are made to Wise County Specifications, and he is
      concerned about the guardrails and barricades causing a wreck. Any
      deviation from the specifications can hold the developer liable. If the City
      puts up the barricades at the developer's expense, then we do not have to
      sign the letter.

      Councilwoman Noll replied that the roads were not completed by the dates
      shown in the agreement. Mr. Crabtree agreed that they were not, and that
      they were six inches of base with a double penetration not two inches of
      asphalt.


                                                                                16
            The Mayor asked the Council if they would accept the money, drop
            the lawsuit, and accept the roads. Councilwoman Noll responded that
            she thought that the people on those streets should have a say on
            whether to accept them.
            Councilwoman Scales said that it was her understanding that the Council
            had already accepted the agreement, and that we were waiting for the
            lawyers to complete the paperwork.
            Councilman Wilson asked that the item be looked up and given to the
            council at the next meeting.

            Councilwoman Noll was concerned with the City’s liability since the
            Mayor has not contacted TML and the legal issue with the funneling of
            money from the developer to the City for the building of the barricades

            Councilwoman Matthews made a motion to table the item to the next
            meeting so that the Mayor may check with TML. Councilman Wilson
            seconded the motion.

          Country Oaks.
          The Mayor suggested that Section 2 B be changed to 45 days. He also
          suggested to change to the second page third paragraph to allow a fire
          department and that the developer must immediately agree to the location.
          Councilman Scales made a motion to allow the Mayor to negotiate the
          best he can, and if he can get anymore, but accept if we must.
          Councilman Wilson seconded the motion.
                 Votes:         Ayes All present              Noes None.

                  The Mayor told the Council that Mr. Snell would like the City to change
                  the road requirements in his development. The Mayor has not put the item
                  on the agenda, because he feels that it would be a waste of the Council’s
                  time.

V.         CONSENT ITEMS

           A.     Mayor’s Report
                  Rain has caused much damage on Pioneer Road. The City will have to
                  spend money on the road. Some people who use the road will help with
                  labor and materials.

                  The City Attorney has looked over the agreement with Chisholm Hills and
                  feels that it is a good settlement. He should have the agreement ready for
                  Council approval by the July meeting.

                2. On page Two – the west one half of Lange Lane
                3. On page Two – remove Hawkins Lane from the agreement
                The council discussed what should be done with the money the City would
                receive from the agreement.
                Councilman Miller and Councilwoman Scales would like to see the money
                stay in a fund for road repair for the City.
                The Mayor said that the money could help the city purchase a vehicle for
                the Police and other infrastructure uses. Councilman Wilson added that
                the money could be used in several years to build the City a New City
                Hall.
                Councilman Wilson made a motion to accept the agreement and that
                the money be put into an interest bearing account and a decision
                about the money will be made after the budget hearing. Councilman

             a performance bond for one year. The developer would be responsible for
             correcting any road problems for one year after acceptance or the City
             could keep the bond money.

             The Mayor turned the meeting over to Mayor Pro Tem Wilson at 8:03
             p.m.
             Mayor Pro Tem Wilson suggested that the road requirements be for
             concrete streets.
             Mayor Pro Tem Wilson stated that the revisions could be written and that
             they be sent to the lawyer and reviewed at the next meeting if there is a
             problem.

             Councilwoman Scales made a motion to require a performance bond
             with the city as a beneficiary for the complete cost of the road that can
             be taken out per phase, pier and beam set up of no more than twenty-

ITEM NUMBER IX: NEW BUSINESS
     B.  Discuss, consider, and act on annex roads
         Councilman Trevino suggests that the city not accept any more roads into

         city has now. Council discusses the situation.
         Council made an exception that if ever any road or roads is taken in

                             ONLY PUBLIC HEARING

                                  MARCH 11, 2003

ITEM NUMBER IX: OLD BUSINESS

       A.     Discuss, consider, and act on Devon Contract
              Council and Doug Mitchell looked through the contract.
               Doug pointed out two changes that his attorney made.
              The changes on the contract were on the first paragraph, second sentence.
              after Devon Energy, it should include Operating Company, L.P.
              The second change was made on page 4. Under Termination,
               a. shall read as Party may terminate this agreement if you seize to have
              any operation on any roads.
              Council also agreed to take part b. out.
              Councilman Miller Sr. made a motion to due away with part b.
              completely and section a. we will say that they will be responsible for
              the repairs and upkeeps of all roads they use for exploration and
              production, that they shall be responsible for the maintenance of those
              roads as long as they are using them for that purpose, once they quit
              using them for exploration and production they are no longer
              responsible for those roads and also accept change where it says
              Devon Energy that it will say Devon Energy Operating Company,
              L.P. on the first page.
              Motion seconded by Councilman Misner.
              Motion passed unanimously.




                                                                                     34
C.   Discuss, consider, and act on road repairs
     Jerry Bradish presented to the council Larry Cox.
     Larry Cox talked about the conditions of the roads. He said there needs a
     lot of work to be done.
     For an example of cost to repair a road, he brought a drawing of Branding
     Iron. This was to give the council an estimate on about how much it cost
     to fix a road. He marked it with the potholes. He does not want to do job
     and then look bad because of the road repair not done correctly.
     He will use bottom ash and cold patch in the holes. Bottom ash is about
     $450.00 for twenty tons.
     His estimate was to be $ 5,900.00 plus material. The city needs to fix all
     roads but there is not enough income.
     Mayor Christian said the only way to get money to fix all roads is to get ad
     valorum tax.
     There was discussion on ad valorum taxes.
     There was discussion among the Council on how to get extra money and
     about ad valorum taxes.
     Councilman Miller Sr. said that if we do get an ad valorum tax passed at
     25 cents per acre it would be about $150.00 per year for each homeowner.
     The city would get over 1 million from Devon, that would surely fix our
     roads.
     Councilman Misner said that the work has to be done and it should be
     done on a road that benefits the most people. The most people are on
     Chisholm Hills and Hilltop Trail.
     Councilman Trevino Jr. said to draw up a bid for Hilltop Trail.
     Councilman Misner said to authorize repair of approximately 3,100ft on
     Hilltop Trail.
     Mayor Christian said to think about it and have a workshop on how to get
     money and how much to repair.
     Jerry Bradish talked about the ditches with water that is dug before Wilson
     Court. He asked for phone lines are located from Sprint on the corner of
     Adeylotte Court and Wilson Court. Jerry said that we needed to rent a
     backhoe for a weekend. Jerry will volunteer his labor. Council agreed to
     rent a backhoe for Jerry to use for a weekend.
     Mr. Cox told the Council that they would offer to rent their backhoe at
     20% under renter place. He also said there is no delivery or pickup charge.
     Councilman Misner made a motion to accept Mr. Cox proposal to
     rent his backhoe for 20% less and allow Jerry to do the work for two
     days with out operator.
     Councilman Miller Sr. seconded the motion.
     Motion passed unanimously.




                                                                              35
                              MARCH 18, 2003

ITEM NUMBER III: OLD BUSINESS

     A.   Discuss, consider, and act on road repair on Hilltop Trail
          Mr. Cox discussed Hilltop Trail. Last time he brought in an estimate on
          the road. He informed the council that from Hilltop Trail to Wilson Ct.
          there was 1,700 sq ft of holes to repair, which would be about 125
          potholes. Mr. Cox said he would clean the holes out and put bottom ash
          on bottom of the holes and put a top layer of hot mix. Hot mix will run
          about $1,200 to $1,400. We will have to hire a truck to haul the hot mix.
          Approximately, it will be about $2,000 with materials plus the truck. The
          bid from Smart Choice is $8,745.
          The total amount to spend will be about $10,800 on road repairs.
          Councilman Misner made a motion to accept the road bid from Smart
          Choice, $8,745 for repairs to Hilltop Trail from 2264 to Wilson Ct.,
          plus materials. Councilman Hancock seconded.
           Motion passed unanimously.

     C.   Discuss, consider, and act on Devon Contract
          Mayor pointed out corrections made to the contract.
          Council discussed the changes made to the contract from City Attorney.
          Doug Mitchell will come by later to get the contract.
          We will email him road agreement when the contract is ready for him to
          pick up and sign.
          Mayor Pro Tem Wilson made a suggesting that we bring up anything to do
          with Devon, since Doug Mitchell was already standing.
          Council agreed.

                                MAY 13, 2003

ITEM NUMBER VI: CITY COUNCIL REPORT:

          Councilman Bradish informs the council about the potholes that are
          coming back up form the last rain. He will get bids from Mr. Cox
          Councilman Trevino or Assistant Monica needs to speak to the
          homeowner and tell her to fix it. The road is washed out. The only thing
          left to do is patch the road after it dries up. He also informed the council
          that we approved a new bus stop at the corner of Wilson Court and
          Aydelotte.
          Kids said the bus driver would not drop them off until they get verification
          from the City. They want to make sure its ok.




                                                                                   36
                               JUNE 10, 2003

ITEM NUMBER V: COMMITTEE REPORT:

         Councilman Bradish informed the council that Hilltop Trail, Chisholm
         Hills, and Branding Iron Rd. need immediate repairs before the rain. The
         holes in the road are getting bigger every time it rains. He also informed
         the council that the street sign on Chisholm Hills is still missing.
         Councilman Bradish had a concern about the sub-contractors in the
         residential areas.
         Mr. Horton told him that the word has been put out that the trucks are not
         allowed in that area and we do the best we can but we do not guarantee
         that they will not use them.
         Council gets in discussion on Hilltop Trail and how a truck damaged it.
         Councilman Hancock took pictures.
         John Christian said to videotape the roads before and after therefore; the
         city will have proof.
         Mayor Misner suggested taking pictures of Bridgeport Tank Trucks going
         through city on residential roads and then sending them a bill. This way
         they will stop using city roads and the situation will be resolved.

    D.   Discuss, consider, and act on weight limit signs
         Councilman Hancock suggested that we get signs to not allow 18-wheelers
         to come in to the roads.
         Councilman Bradish said that we could not do that. We have an ordinance
         that has the weight limit for an 18-wheeler. We need to get signs.
         Council discussed where signs are needed. Total calculation is: 16 stop
         signs and 10 weight limit signs.
         Mayor Misner suggested that we get 20 stop signs. They discussed the
         sizes on the different signs. Mayor Misner said to put this on the next
         agenda, some one to install the signs.
         Councilman Hancock said to get 10 of the 24x24 and 12 of the 18x18 stop
         signs. They are going to be non reflective. For the weight limit signs, we
         are going to get the standard size.
         John Christian suggested putting the city hall number on the signs.
         Council thought it was a good idea. Council came to a final decision.
         They estimated the cost would be
          Stop Signs:                   Quantity 10 - 24x24 $46 ea        =$460.00
                                                12 - 18x18 $29 ea.        =$348.00
         Weight limit signs:            Quantity 10 - 18x24 $26.15 ea. =$261.50.
                         8ft post :     Quantity 32 - $10 ea              =$320.00

         The total estimated cost to be spent on signs is not to exceed $1389.50.




                                                                                 37
     Councilman Bradish suggested that we purchase bolts and clamps at
     tractor supply.
     Council went to discussion on where to buy all the necessary things to
     install a post.
     Councilman Bradish and Secretary Hyden will work out the details.
     Mayor Pro Tem suggested that Councilman Hancock continue with the
     motion and go up to $1500.
     Councilman Hancock made a motion that we purchase the presently
     required stop signs, weight limit signs, and post, in the necessary sizes
     and in the amount not to exceed $1600.00.
     Councilman Bradish seconded the motion.
     Motion passed unanimously.

                           JUNE 17, 2003

E.   Discuss, consider, and act on bid for road repairs

     Councilman Bradish told the council that he asked Mr. Cox to get bids on
     repairing the roads. This is In addition to the ones he did before.
     Mr. Cox said that he would fix the roads he did before at no charge.
     The bid is for the new holes on Chisholm Hills, Branding Iron, Hilltop
     Trail, Wilson Ct, and Judge Ct. The bid is for $6,210.00.

     Councilman Miller Sr. said that he would like to call the sheriff in Wise
     County and talk to the guy in charge of program with inmates to see how
     they do it to fill potholes.
     Councilman Bradish said the program was for the county only.
     Councilman Miller will check on it and see what we can do.
     Getting back to the road bids,
     Mr. Cox put in a monthly upkeep bid for $450.The bid for the road repairs
     $6210.00 without materials and a limitation on the sides of the roads.
     Councilman Bradish said that we will keep spending money and streets
     will keep falling apart until we lay four inches of asphalt. He said the dirt
     from the edges of the road need to be away because it is holding the
     moisture.
     Councilman Trevino Jr. said he is willing to do the main road if the city
     will pay for the propane.
     Councilman Hancock suggested that we authorize Councilman Trevino Jr.
     to remove the dirt from the road edges and pay for the fuel.

     Councilman Hancock made a motion that we agree that the city
     furnish the propane for Luis if he takes his tractor and bucket and
     contours the road edges to get the water away from the road.
     Councilman Bradish seconded.
     Motion passed unanimously.




                                                                               38
          Councilman Hancock made a motion that we accept Mr. Cox’s bid of
         $6210.00 to do the necessary road repair on Chisholm Hills, Branding
         Iron, Hilltop Trail, Wilson Ct, and Judge Ct. and this is a one-time
         repair. Councilman Bradish seconded the motion.
         Motion passed unanimously.

         Councilman Hancock made a motion that we accept Smart Choice
         Construction’s monthly maintenance on New Fairview city roads for
         $450.00 per month and we would like a contract to the effect of what I
         just stated and that is to keep up with the roads and hole patches on a
         monthly bases with a thirty-day termination clause. Councilman
         Bradish seconded the motion.
         Motion passed unanimously.

                                JULY 8, 2003

ITEM NUMBER IV:          CITY COUNCIL REPORT

         Councilman Bradish said the road repairs look good. He also mentioned
         the firework stand at the corner of 407.
         Council agreed. Mayor Misner informed Mr. Cox that for the record we do
         not pay tax. He is to get our tax ID# when they purchase things for the
         city.

    C.   Discuss, consider, and act on excess weight limit and possible
         franchise with IESI

         Mayor Misner presented Chris Henderson.
         Mayor Misner said that 18,000 lb is the maximum weight limit for our
         roads.
         Every time IESI comes in the city, they are in violation. The trucks weigh
         more then the maximum road limit. If we stop their service the only
         problem would be for the people who they provide service to.
         He suggested taking in consideration someone like Taylor Disposal.
         Mayor Misner suggested a franchise agreement.
         Chris Henderson said that they only get $2400 in revenue a month.
         Councilman Bradish said that he pays them $23.00 per month.
         Mr. Henderson said that a franchise would control pricing. The cost is
         good, taking in consideration that the price of gas and service has gone up.
         Mayor Misner said that with a 5% franchise from $2400 we would get
         about $120 per month. That is not enough to fix the roads.
         Councilman Bradish said that would not be enough if we were going to
         pay $400 a month to maintain roads.
         Mr. Henderson said that they would run their smallest truck from
         Bridgeport through Chisholm Hills area. It only weighs 18,000lbs.




                                                                                  39
         Mayor Misner said they have the power to negotiate with IESI just as they
         did with Devon. If they break, they fix.
         Mr. Henderson asked the council why they did not do the weight limit at
         30,000 lbs.
         Councilman Bradish told him that our roads are made of two coats of chip
         seal and roads cannot handle more weight.
         Mayor Misner asked him about how many times his truck comes in to the
         city to pick up trash.
         Mr. Henderson said they come in Tuesday for trash and Wednesday to
         pick up dumpsters.
         He told him that in our ordinance it states that any truck that exceeds
         weight needs to get a permit for $100. This permit only allows one load
         per trip. Therefore, IESI would need to get two permits in order to do
         business and go down our streets. This applies to all city limits.
         Councilman Trevino said that we need to stick to our ordinance.
         Councilman Bradish agrees and says that we cannot be spending $5,000 a
         month on fixing roads.
         Chris Henderson suggested to the council to consider advertising for bid
         on garbage to eliminate that problem. You can probably find someone
         who can come in with a lighter vehicle. IESI does not make enough to pay
         to fix the roads.
         Mayor Misner agrees that is a good idea and states that it is legal to set up
         a franchise fee. A citizen suggested that we put dumpsters at city hall and
         have citizens bring their trash to the dumpsters. Mayor Misner said to
         advertise for a possible bid for a possible franchise. The mayor will look
         through the previous agreement and will discuss it with the council at a
         special meeting. Meanwhile he told IESI that if they continue to do
         business in our city and they have to understand they will be responsible
         for any damages done to the roads by their vehicles.
         Mr. Henderson said that he cannot afford to replace the roads with the
         revenue they get from the city and by the time they pay their cost. He
         made a point that when Duncan pulled out they came in to take over their
         garbage pick up.
         Mayor Misner cleared up the fact that Duncan was allowed out of the
         franchise and council decided to pull everything out.
         Councilman Trevino Jr. made a motion that we advertise on garbage
         disposal and get bids for a possible franchise.
         Councilman Bradish seconded the motion.
          Motion passed unanimously.

ITEM NUMBER IX          NEW BUSINESS

    D.   Discuss, consider, and act on Road Agreement for Chisholm Hills
         Road
         Mayor Misner read the agreement. Item will be on the next agenda.
         No action taken



                                                                                   40
     E.   Discuss, consider, and act on speed bumps
          Councilman Trevino Jr. said that he put this item on the agenda because of
          speed limit.
          He mentioned that the main person speeding is a cop from Decatur.
          Mayor Misner said that a police officer should conduct themselves off and
          on work.
          Councilman Miller Sr. and Councilman Bradish said that it was a waste of
          money and they were not needed.
          No action was taken.
     G.   Discuss, consider, and act on damages to Chisholm Hills Rd.
          Councilman Miller Sr. said that there was no need to discuss this topic
          because when damages occurred there was no weight limit signs up.
          A concrete truck from Wise Readi Mix went through Chisholm Hills to
          deliver and did major damages to the road. The truck weighed more then
          the roads could handle.
          Mayor Misner said that if there were no signs up there is nothing they can
          do.
          Mr. Cox said he knew the guy and if we keep sending him letters, we
          might get him to pay some to fix the road. The weight limit ordinance has
          already been faxed to them.
          Mayor Misner said to call Natalie and see what the legal standing is if
          signs were not up but we have an ordinance.

                             AUGUST 12, 2003

          the red trucks on our roads.
          Councilman Bradish said he stopped a truck and he was told that they
          were oil field roads and therefore he did not belong on them.

       G.     Discuss and consider on over weight trucks ignoring weight limits on
              residential streets.
              Mayor Misner said that we are tired of people not cooperating and
              thinking they can do what ever they want and we cannot do anything

ITEM NUMBER III:         SECRETARY’S REPORT
         Assistant Secretary informed the council about Pioneer Bridge, which will
         be worked on this week as confirmed with Devon and Bowie Dozer. Court
         Dates will be the second Monday of each month at 7:00p.m. Also Mr. Cox
         will start on road maintenance Friday, Monday and Tuesday.

ITEM NUMBER IV: CITY COUNCIL REPORT
         Councilman Trevino Jr. said that Councilman Bradish and he took
         numbers of tags from trucks violating city ordinance. We need to send
         them a letter and advise them if they don’t fix the problem that further
         actions will be taken.
         Mayor Misner said weight limit signs are posted so they should know if
         they are over weight.
          Councilman Miller Sr. suggested that whenever a mobile home is moved
         they need to remove skirting and pipes also. We need to amend our
         existing ordinance. Councilman Trevino Jr. also mentioned there were
         concerns from residents about kids playing outside late at night without
         supervision.
         A resident said that she has seen the kids playing outside at 3:00 am. They
         are kids 3-6yrs of age. Another resident said that he believes that people
         drop kids off at that house for baby-sitting and the babysitter lets them out.
         The sheriff said to report the situation to the council and go from there.
         We will send that person a letter to address the issue. If this continues
         further actions will be taken.



                                                                                    42
          Mayor Pro Tem suggested that whenever young kids are seen that late
          outside they need to report to CPS within 48 hrs.

                              OCTOBER 14, 2003

ITEM NUMBER III:         SECRETARY’S REPORT

          Assistant Secretary informed the Council that Mr. Cox asked if it was
          possible to get two months budget to start patching potholes on Chisholm
          Hills Dr. Council disagreed.
          They agreed to stick with what the contract says. He will also pick up
          trash on 105 Chisholm Hills next week and will mow City Hall property
          again at no charge.

ITEM NUMBER IV: CITY COUNCIL REPORT

          Councilman Trevino Jr. said that trucks are still pulling trailers in.
          Councilman Bradish said there are tractor-trailers on Latham Lane sitting
          there on weekends.
          Mayor Misner said that our enforcement officer needs to be available on
          the weekends or when he is not at his other job.
          Councilman Bradish also said that we need to get another bus run as you
          come into Hilltop. Council also mentioned the grass situation. When a
          letter is sent, the property owners are given ten days to fix the problem. On
          the eleventh day if the problem is not fixed then the city will fix it and
          then will put a lien against the property.
          Councilman Miller Sr. suggested that we issue a court summons to the
          violator to give them a chance to pay for it before a lien is put on the
          property.

     C.   Discuss, consider and act on overweight trucks
          Motion to open for discussion made by Trevino Jr. Motion seconded by
          Councilman Miller Sr.
          Leave as is
                           NOVEMBER 11, 2003

ITEM NUMBER VII: CITY COUNCIL REPORT

          Councilman Hancock said that Councilman Bradish and he went around
          taking pictures. There is still a problem with trucks. There is a lot of stuff
          that needs to be looked into. Councilman Hancock said that hiring a full
          time maintenance/officer would cure problems. Also they made a list of
          equipment that they suggest the city needs to purchase to fix the majority
          of stuff except the serious road problems. Councilman Hancock said that
          there is $52,000 that belongs to Chisholm Hills. He suggests that the city




                                                                                       43
              use that money to buy the equipment to fix problems in the Chisholm Hills
              subdivision.
              Councilman Bradish said that we need to put signs on each street
              informing people to contact City Hall to find out about city ordinances.

ITEM NUMBER VIII: MAYOR’S REPORT
         Mayor Misner stated that the city never ran IESI out. We just told them to
         follow our weight limit ordinance.

ITEM NUMBER IX: REPORTS
     F. Road issues
           Mr. Cox presented a road report to the council. He talks about the potholes
           on the different roads that need to be patched. According to the contract
           they bill every month. He said that they have billed once for the month of
           September and they have not billed for October or November. In order to
           patch and do a good job on all the potholes he would need hot mix. With
           that he can do the big and small holes all at once.

ITEM NUMBER XII: NEW BUSINESS
     D.   Discuss, consider and act on Smart Choice Construction and Road
         Maintenance Contract
         Councilman Hancock said that we need to keep up the roads as good
         condition as we can.
         Councilman Hancock made a motion that we allow Mr. Cox to go in
         and fix the indicated items on the estimate given, which would be an
         additional payment to him of $2,950.00 to bring the roads up to
         condition. Motion seconded by Councilman Miller Sr.
         Motion passed unanimously.
     G.  Trash issues
         Councilman Trevino Jr. said to make it a record that we didn’t run IESI
         out. Mayor Misner brought up a complaint from a resident on why we
         allow school buses if they are over weight.
         Councilman Bradish said that the buses don’t mess up the roads because
         they run with a single axle.

                                DECEMBER 9, 2003

ITEM NUMBER VI: CITY COUNCIL REPORT
         Councilman Bradish said that all the roads are patched up to date. Also he
         informed the council that Mr. Cox has replaced all missing signs.

ITEM NUMBER X: PUBLIC INPUT FOR ITEMS NOT ON THE AGENDA
         John Christian talked about the bridge on Pioneer Rd. Mayor said that
         Bowie Dozier assured they were going to start on it any day. Nothing has
         been done and it’s been five weeks ago. Councilman Miller Sr. will call
         them tomorrow.



                                                                                    44

ITEM NUMBER IV: CITY COUNCIL REPORT
         Councilman Bradish said that he has fixed several signs that were twisted
         due to the winds. He suggested that we have Mr. Cox cement the signs to
         avoid this problem. Mayor Misner said that the last signs that were
         replaced by Mr. Cox were cemented, anchored and tack welded. From
         now on all signs will be installed the same.
         Councilman Trevino Jr. asked Mr. Cox how much it would cost to haul a
         truckload of free dirt/concrete to Hilltop Trail to fill the bar ditches.
         Mr. Cox said the expense would be the truck. The cost of the truck would
         be about $95 a load and $200 a day.

ITEM NUMBER V: MAYOR’S REPORT
         Mayor Misner asked about 364 Hilltop Trl. Code Enforcement Officer
         said that they were sent a certified letter and the time has expired. A
         citation has been sent certified. Mayor Misner also informed the council
         about the situation about the bridge on Pioneer Rd. Bowie Dozier
         promised to fix the bridge and they haven’t. Therefore he called Devon
         Energy about it and Bowie Dozier promised they would start work
         tomorrow. They will provide the barricades but we have to close the road.
         Mayor issued a resolution, which doesn’t require a vote or anything else to
         temporary close Pioneer Rd. to traffic to complete construction. Mayor
         Misner will contact the Rhome fire department and police. Our Code
         Enforcement officer will meet with Bowie Dozier tomorrow morning. He
         will represent the city and close the road.

                               FEBRUARY 10, 2004

ITEM NUMBER IV: CITY COUNCIL REPORT
         Councilman Trevino Jr. and Councilman Bradish talked about the roads.
          Mr. Cox presented a road report from January 1st thru February 10th.
         February repairs will be done this week. APAC has authorized one of their
         engineers to monitor the materials and installation to help us with our
         unstable soil and road base problems.
         Mayor Pro Tem Wilson informed the council about an article in the paper
         telling about the amount of taxes collected by gas wells. The county
         collected two hundred fifty-two thousand dollars out of New Fairview on
         gas wells. Council talked about ad-valorum taxes and grants.

                                 MARCH 9, 2004

ITEM NUMBER IV: CITY COUNCIL REPORT




                                                                                 45
     Mayor Misner said that our code officer informed him that the potholes
     patched are not holding up well.
     Councilman Bradish said that he and Mr. Cox have discussed it.
     Mr. Cox said that the asphalt he got last time was bad and that APAC will
     give us some more to cover the potholes patched. The asphalt was just not
     good. The asphalt was breaking before the rain. Mr. Cox said that APAC
     will provide a report on the roads and give ideas on how to work on the
     roads and save money. As soon as Mr. Cox receives the report he will
     submit it to the council for review, other then that potholes are being
     filled.
     Councilman Trevino Jr. informed the council that he talked to DPS about
     the trucks parked on city streets. We can request the sheriff department to
     write them a ticket. Councilman Bradish informed the council that the
     trucks are changing their running time to 5:00a.m.

                           APRIL 13, 2004

E.   Discuss, consider and act on Road Maintenance Contract
     Mayor Misner said he talked to Raymond and he said some of the places
     patched were popped out within 2 weeks. Phil and Ray got together and
     they are going to try a different approach.
     Mr. Cox said that they did not find what Raymond thought he had seen.
     Potholes are not popping out. He said there was a lack of communication.
     Mayor Misner said Raymond is in charge of everything.
     Mr. Cox said that last month they put the materials in the potholes for free,
     Mayor Misner said yes because we got bad asphalt.
     Mr. Cox said we did not get bad asphalt.

                         APRIL 20, 2004
                       SPECIAL MEETING

C.    Discuss, consider and act on presentation from Smart Choice on how
     to repair the roads for Hilltop and Chisholm Hills
     Phil informed the council that he has been working with Raymond to see
     what different ways there are to fix the roads. Phil said that Raymond
     suggested to get a backhoe and cut out the areas that are failing and go
     down 8 to 10 inches and fill with flex base and let it sit for about a week
     then come back and put asphalt over the top.
     Councilman Bradish said if so you have to keep it damp and not let it dry
     out. Mayor Misner said that the solution would be to put it in, compact it
     and let it dry and come back the next day and asphalt it. There are 12 areas
     on Hilltop and about the same on Chisholm Hills.
     Phil said they were planning on using the flex base that was coming out.
     Councilman Trevino Jr. asked what the cost would be.
     Phil said that the only way to figure the cost was by the hour at $65 an
     hour for two days.



                                                                               46
              Mayor Misner said it would be $1040 for two days, eight hours a day, total
              of sixteen hours.
              Phil said it would be about $275 additional for flex base per truck with 22
              yards. Mayor Misner said that seemed high. Mayor Misner said TXI is less
              expensive buying by the ton. Mayor Misner said he got three trucks for
              $325 last time.
               You can buy directly from TXI. Mayor Misner asked Phil to call TXI and
              get a price for flex base and then let us know. Mayor Misner said that they
              sale washed and not washed, get the cheapest one but make sure its flex
              base.

                                    MAY 11, 2004

ITEM NUMBER VIII: OLD BUSINESS
     A.  Discuss, consider, and act on Chisholm Hills Road and Hilltop Trail
         Road
         Mayor Misner said that the only way to fix the roads is with taxes or
         property assessments. Some cities charge $3 to $5 a foot depending on
         what kind of road you want. You can pay it out in payments.
         Phil Cox explained to the council the plan he had to patch the roads. There
         are twenty-three places marked. Everything is the same. He came back
         before council for prices.
         Mayor Misner asked Phil to check with TXI at the previous meeting.
         Phil said the price with TXI was $350 per truckload. He checked with a
         local guy and his cost is $275 including material. Phil said seven trucks
         are needed in total, which totals $1925.The total estimated cost for the
         whole job would be about $11,000 including the flex base, asphalt,
         equipment and taking extra materials and fixing erosion areas.
         Mayor Misner confirmed with Phil that the plan is to dig out holes, put
         road base down, compact and put 2 inches of asphalt down.
         Council discuss yearly budget on roads.
         Mayor Pro Tem Wilson suggested that we wait for the May and June rains
         to go by and then in July think about it.
         Mayor Misner said we spent about $64,000 on roads last year.
         Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said that in the past they discussed several times
         about having the developer fix the roads and got sued twice.
         A citizen asked where the money was going for the permits we require for
         over weight trucks.
         The council agreed to get committees started on roads.
         Mayor Misner said he would rather have gravel roads.
         The citizens agreed.
         Councilman Bradish asked if anyone knows how to get a hold of the core
         of engineers to get some of their used equipment to let us know.
         Mayor Misner said to put on the next agenda.




                                                                                      47
                                   JUNE 8, 2004

ITEM NUMBER V: MAYOR’S REPORT
         Mayor Misner said that the state allows us to address something that is an
         emergency even if it’s not on the agenda. He informed the council that we
         have two places where the roads are washing out in Chisholm Hills. If it
         continues to rain like this the roads will be gone by next time we meet. He
         said that Ray talked to Bowie Dozier and they are going to remove part of
         the ten horns that are in there because they are to long. They bring the
         water out against the bank and make it wash out instead of coming out and
         making a gentle turn. We will get it fixed within the next three days. He
         said this would require an expenditure of about $3000 to $4000. Ray said
         that the trip tomorrow will be $225 to $250 to remove the extensions on
         the ten horns which will help increase the flow of water. Then Bowie
         Dozier will work up the proposal for the rest. The locations are 108
         Creaser Lane, 490 Hilltop and a third one on Latham. The one at Creaser
         is the worst.
     B.  Discuss, consider and act on repairing Chisholm Hills Rd. and Hilltop
         Rd.
         Mayor Misner said that this item has been on the agenda for the last three
         months. We don’t have the money to fix the roads unless it’s an
         emergency. Councilman Trevino Jr. suggested putting it in a workshop to
         discuss and come up with a plan to fix the roads to last till it rains.
         Mayor Misner said that we are spending $450 a month to fix 15 potholes
         and we still get complaints. We have done major repairs on Hilltop and
         Chisholm Hills already. Mayor Misner stated that only if an emergency or
         safety issue comes up we would fix it.
          A citizen mentioned that at the last meeting we said $65,000 was spent
         last year on roads.
         Mayor Misner said that we spent $38,000 last year and that $65,000 was
         the total spent.

                                  JULY 20, 2004

ITEM NUMBER IV: CITY COUNCIL REPORT
         Councilwoman Hyden informed the council that a truck moved a mobile
         home on Hilltop and messed up the road. There are witnesses.
          Our code officer said that the trucking company that did that was XIT out
         of Bridgeport. He said that we could not stop them from coming in. He
         mentioned to the council that they would start pulling in mobile homes on
         barn tractors that way they will be under the 9 tons and will not need a
         permit.
         Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said that we needed to get everything on our
         computers. It will save time. He would like to have this put on a future
         agenda to pay somebody to come in and type all the stuff up on the
         website. This way all information will be available to the citizens.



                                                                                 48
G.    Discuss, consider and act on purchasing a tractor for the city
     Councilman Bradish suggested that the mayor look around for a tractor.
     We need a tractor for the city. We have been borrowing one to use our
     sickle mower. Councilman Gray said that there are three different tractor
     stores in Decatur. Mayor Misner said that we needed to put this out for
     bids. We need to designate a dollar amount. It has to be 50 horsepower
     minimum; it needs to have a front in loader, three-point hookup, ETO,
     external hydraulics and has to be diesel. Councilman Gray said that we
     needed to check on the different prices for parts. Councilman Bradish
     made a motion to put bid and requirements together for city. Motion
     failed.
     Mayor Pro Tem Wilson suggested that Councilman Gray and Mayor
     Misner contact several dealers to see what they have and the cost and then
     discuss it at the next meeting.
H.   Discuss, consider and act on expiration for Smart Choice Road
     Agreement
     The Road Agreement with Smart Choice will expire at the end of August.
     Mayor Misner asked if council would like to renew it. No action.

                           JULY 27, 2004

E.   Discuss, consider and act on purchase of a tractor for the city
     Mayor Misner asked Raymond to speak.
     Raymond said that the main thing he was looking for was for the city to
     purchase their own equipment and that way we would cut down dollar
     wise on what we are spending. Number one in contract labor we are
     spending $5400 annually just on road maintenance less material. That
     $5400 can go toward purchase price of a tractor on four years at $540 a
     month based on sales price for a 52 horse, ford, with a front-end loader,
     and everything is outgoing expense. Right now he said he was on the
     payroll and he didn’t have a problem doing the same thing and putting that
     money back in the city to help the city grow. He said he looked at a 52
     horse ford, rear wheel drive, extra heavy duty front end loader, priced a
     box blade and a 6 ft bush hog at $27,000 and could be less since we are a
     city and if we finance through them.
     Mayor Misner said that when they talked he said the tractor was $19,000.
     That was just for the tractor and front-end loader.
     Raymond said it was $19,000 for the tractor and the front-end loader,
     $1,000 for the extra heavy bush hog, $550 for the box blade and if we
     wanted a canopy on it was $500.
     Mayor Misner said that based on our conversation the total was
     approximately $22,400 without the bush hog. This is a brand new tractor.
     This is a 1060. The one Mayor looked at was a 1075 barely used for
     $26,000.




                                                                             49
     Mayor Misner said that if we buy something less then $25,000 we don’t
     need to put it up for bid. Since we are a city we are getting special
     financing with an interest of 3.9%.
     Council discuss on what equipment to get. The required down payment is
     $2,200.
     Mayor Pro Tem said we will have to write down some standards and who
     can use it.
     Mayor Misner said that based on the figures it will cost about $23,795.
     Councilman Bradish made a motion to have Raymond Blevins start
     paperwork and get final figures so the contract can be locked in
     before the end of July at a 0% interest rate and make down payment
     if necessary. Motion seconded by Councilman Trevino Jr. One
     abstained.
     Motion passed

     Mayor Misner said there were two bids out of nine different companies.
     One was from FX5 for $10,347.50 and Smart Choice Construction for
     $8,000.
     Raymond said that his understanding when he talked to them was to put a
     cement head wall so there could not be more erosion.
     Put the culvert extensions back on and shorten them so the water can flow
     and put a 4ft culvert and replace guardrail on both. Raymond said that
     there is no saying if it would happen again.
     Councilman Trevino Jr. made a motion to accept the lowest bid,
     which is Smart Choice Construction for $8,000, turn key job. Motion
     seconded by Bradish.
     Motion passed unanimously.

     Mayor Misner said to make up a maintenance log. Raymond will be the

ITEM NUMBER VII: PUBLIC INPUT FOR ITEMS NOT ON THE AGENDA
         Robert Rankin introduced himself to the council and the public as being a
         candidate for Pct. 1 Commissioner. He is the incumbent for the runoff.
         He is the incumbent for the runoff. He informed us that he was here to
         address several issues the city has. He informed the Council that he talked
         to sheriff and if we want a residential deputy for our city, the minimum fee
         is $400.00 a month. Newark has this program. Secondly the city has no
         Interlocal agreement with the county for any road maintenance.
         He stated that all that needs to be done is fill out a simple form, give it to
         the Commissioner and they take it to the Commissioner Court and have it
         approved. If he is elected he said that he would make sure we get that
         benefit. The County can give you up to $15,000 by law worth of material,
         labor and equipment.

       C.     Discuss, consider, and act on bid awarded to Smart Choice for culvert
              & drainage repair on Latham Ln. & Creasser Ln.
              Code Officer Ray said that the concrete has been poured on the bottom of
              the drainage ditch. He said that we need a completion date.
              Mrs. Cox said that it would be completed in a few days. The culverts are
              in.
              Mayor Misner said that we couldn’t ask for a certain date since it was our
              fault for not asking for a completion date at the beginning.
              Councilman Gray said that he would like the work to be completed by the
              1st of October.
              The council agreed.
              Mayor Misner asked the council if in case we can have an emergency
              meeting for the budget they all could be here tomorrow night. Council said
              yes.

                                NOVEMBER 9, 2004

ITEM NUMBER IV: CITY COUNCIL REPORT
         Councilman Bradish informed the council that there is problems on
         Wilson Ct. again where we trenched across the road once before. Also for
         official record he said that since the project came up on 407 several people
         have jumped him saying that the city streets need to be redone worse then
         407. Making it clear for everyone, the city is not redoing 407 it’s a state
         project. He informed the council that he has also been told that since the
         mayor and council live well that if we cut our wages the city would have
         more money to repair roads. For the record he stated that the mayor and
         city council are all volunteers and that not one penny is received by them
         for what they do.



                                                                                     51
                               DECEMBER 14, 2004

ITEM NUMBER VI: CITY COUNCIL REPORT:
         Councilman Bradish updated on 407 and informed us that the next three
         days there would be one- lane traffic. Also he mentioned the problem on
         Wilson Ct. He said that the water is coming up on top of the road. He said
         that Ray and he talked about it and came up with the conclusion that a 40ft
         trench drain is needed. We have to get something done before we lose the
         road.
         Mayor Misner said to put it on our next agenda to approve the cost to fix
         the problem.
         Mayor Pro Tem Wilson asked Councilman Bradish to re explain what they
         are doing on 407.
         Councilman Bradish said that they would run eight (8) inches on top of
         twelve (12) inches of asphalt on the road. The road would be thirty- (30) ft
         wide, eleven- (11) ft driving lane and four- (4) ft shoulders. Councilman
         Bradish said that they begin working at 7:00a.m. Or as soon as we can get
         the equipment.

X.     PUBLIC INPUT FOR ITEMS NOT ON THE AGENDA:
           Bruce Rider filled out form to speak. He was not present at the time.
           Mayor Misner read out letter he wrote regarding road limit permits. He
           demands to see where his money for permits goes and said that all money
           on truck permit fees should go to roads and not office supplies. He also
           mentioned that we would have more people willing to pay for truck
           permits if the fee was lowered.
           Paul Marshall stated that $4,400 is what the city has received from
           overload truck permit fees this year, which pays half of the road repair
           expense that we had this year.
            Mayor Misner said to put overload truck permit fee on our next agenda
           and ask our city attorney if we have the ability to charge more for
           commercial traffic then residential.

                                JANUARY 11, 2005

ITEM NUMBER IV: CITY COUNCIL REPORT
         Councilman Bradish mentioned the incident that occurred on Wilson Ct
         with the school bus. He said it was discussed between him, Councilman
         Gray and Enforcement Officer Raymond Blevins and they came up with a
         temporary fix. He suggested getting bids on this soon before it gets worse.



                                                                                  52
B.    Discuss, consider and act on cost to fix the problem on Wilson Ct.
      where the
      water is coming up on top of the road.
      Councilman Gray said that the school bus got stuck in the middle of the
      road because the water is not draining. He said that a temporary repair was
      made. The repair can hold probably until it dries out and then we can do a
      little ditch work to get the water flowing.
      Councilman Bradish said that we need to get some bids and prices. A
      locater can come out at no cost. We would need a truckload of asphalt.
      Code Enforcement Raymond said that we have the equipment to do the
      work ourselves.
      Mayor Misner said that the decision made and the people involved felt like
      it was an emergency but the decision made to spend $300 of road base
      came out of city funds and it was made with out the majority of the
      council to approve it.
      Mayor Misner said it’s ok but it was not a good thing because we
      could get in trouble if someone makes an issue of it.
      Councilman Bradish said that he and Councilman Gray agreed and
      told Raymond to call Councilman Trevino Jr., and he would also
      agree to make it majority.
      Mayor Misner said that Councilman Trevino Jr. was not called.

 C.   Discuss, consider and act on permit for overload trucks & weight limit
      ordinance 2002-02-081.
      Mayor Misner said that a while back he asked if we could charge
      commercial traffic a different fee then what we charge a resident for
      permit fees because the big commercial trucks are the ones that do the
      damage and the reply back from our city attorney was that the council can
      charge more for commercial traffic but the ordinance will have to allow it
      based on the weight of the commercial vehicles and the wear and tear they
      cause on the roads. We currently have a flat rate.
      Council discussed the complaints that residents have for the permit fees
      that they are required to pay just to improve their property when bringing
      in gravel, dirt and so forth. Because of all the rain that we have got many
      residents will need to fix their driveways.
      Councilman Bradish said that this permit fee for over load trucks makes
      our citizens be as illegal as the guys that drive the big trucks because to
      avoid paying they are going to sneak in loads on the weekends or when
      Raymond is not around.
      Mayor Pro Tem suggested that for a two-month period of time there is no
      charge for gravel trucks to come in and dump for residential use only.
      Councilman Bradish said that a two-month period is probably not enough
      for all residents some might need more time.
      Mayor Misner suggested that for private residential use, maintenance
      repair, new construction we could exempt a month.
      Councilman Trevino Jr. suggested that we exempt the cost for a month.



                                                                              53
             Mayor Pro Tem Wilson suggested that when the motion is made that we
             say that due to all the emergency road situations for the next five-months
             residents can haul in gravel for there roads and whenever they are going to
             do it specify if it’s for there driveway.
             Mayor Misner suggested that residents get a permit but not have to pay for
             it so that way if there is serious damage done we will have a record of who
             did the job and who is responsible for any damage.
             Councilman Gray made a motion that we allow a five-month grace
             period for the residents to bring in dirt or rock to improve their
             homes and drainage and there will be no permit fee for that but
             permit will be required. Motion seconded by Councilman Trevino Jr.
             Motion passed unanimously.

             * G & H discussed together
      G.     Discuss, consider and act on P&Z working on projects during the next
             two years like road adjustments and what they see in zoning issues.

      H.     Discuss, consider and act on P & Z sending out a survey to the city in
             the future to help get updated input from the city.
             Mayor Pro Tem Wilson informed the council that the Planning and Zoning
             committee, using our existing city ordinances would like to put together a
             survey. They would like to go out to the city and get new input with the
             help of the road and park committee as well. Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said
             it would be good since we haven’t had new input in three years.
              Mayor Pro Tem Wilson made a motion to allow the Planning and Zoning
             committee to do a survey with the public, they will present to the city
             council to get their stamp of approval before they send it out to citizens.
             Mayor Misner said that the motion was not good because it was not on the
             agenda.
             Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said it was ok that we could put it on our next
             agenda. Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said to put on the next agenda that we
             would like to approve that it would be ok for the Planning and Zoning to
             go ahead and do a survey.

ITEM NUMBER X: NEW BUSINESS
     D.  Discuss, consider and act on train blocking intersection in the city.
         Mayor Misner said that he asked this to be put on the agenda because there
         have been numerous occasions where fire trucks and ambulances were
         delayed because they had to go around because the interactions at 287 and
         407 or 287 and 4421 were blocked by trains unnecessarily. We had this
         ordinance drawn up by our city attorney.
         Mayor Misner and Councilman Gray agreed that the train could stop way
         before it comes to an intersection but they don’t. If the train blocks an
         intersection they get fined. If we pass this ordinance we will send



                                                                                     54

         Councilman Bradish said that Raymond has the road fixed up on Wilson

         that did it clean it up. He said he is still waiting to get the paper in his
         hands to do anything about the driveway. HWY 407 is a total mess and
         it’s going to get worse.

         need the price. Councilman Bradish said to table it and put it on the next
         agenda to keep it open. FM407 is going to be 11 ft drive land and 4 ft.

      E.     Discuss, consider and act on amending Subdivision Ordinance and
             related agreements.
             The council discussed ordinance adopting street width requirements.
             Mayor Pro Tem Wilson questioned the wording of the ordinance.
             Councilman Moran said it was a good ordinance because of density.
             Mayor Miller read out ordinance1996-01-0005-05-012, an ordinance of
             the City of New Fairview adopting width requirements. Mayor Pro Tem
             Wilson asked if this affected the depth of the road. This ordinance is for
             the width of the road only.

ITEM NUMBER XII: NEW BUSINESS
      F. Discuss, consider and act on budget to repair city streets.
         Councilman Gray said that Raymond doesn’t want a budget but the way it
         is now to get a load of road base or asphalt he has to contact the mayor.
         If we could allow him to get a load of asphalt or road base for x dollar
         amount so that then he can get the material quicker.
         Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said he would like to know what was spent this
         year.
         The proposed budget for 04-05 for street repair was $4,147.00; the
         approved amount was $4,500.00. From Oct 04 thru now we have spent
         $7,711.37.
         Mayor Miller Sr. said that he agrees that he don’t need to contact every
         time we need road base.
         Councilman Gray made a motion that we allow
         Raymond Blevins to spend up to $500 a month without council
         approval for road repairs.
         Motion seconded by Councilman Moran. Motion passed unanimously.

ITEM NUMBER XI: NEW BUSINESS
      A. Discuss, consider and act on inter-local Agreement for Road Repair.
         Mayor Miller Sr. said that Raymond suggested that we do the worst spots
         first. This is something that we have been working on. The road
         committee needs to get together and decide what roads need more work.
         Raymond said that in order to move forward with this all we need is to
         approve this agreement with the signature of the mayor. It will be taken to
         the next commissioner’s court.
         Councilman Gray made a motion that we accept the Inter-local
         agreement between the City of New Fairview and Wise County.
         Motion seconded by Councilman Moran.
         Motion passed unanimously.

              ordinance.
              Mayor Miller Sr. said that before this item is opened up for discussion that
              he would like to apologize to the city council and everyone else because
              this shouldn’t even be on here. It was brought to his attention that the
              mayor has 96 hours to file a protest and put it back on the agenda. He said
              that he went over the hours and didn’t know it at the time.
              He said that he could have said nobody knows and has done it but he is
              going by the rules and he went over the 96 hours and didn’t file a protest
              and just told Monica to put it back on there because he had people that
              wanted us to readdress it.



                                                                                       57
             If enough of the council felt that we needed to readdress the issue than you
             let Monica know and then we can put it back on the agenda.
             Councilman Trevino Jr., Gray and Councilwoman Millar agreed to put it
             back on the agenda.

                                DECEMBER 1, 2005

ITEM NUMBER V: COMMITTEE REPORTS
         Jerry Bradish said we have a bad spot on Chisholm Hills to repair
         approximately 1100 feet, we are looking at about $27,000 and we only
         have $13,500 left in the road budget. It will cost about $10,000 for base.
         Devon is in the process right now in donating us anywhere from $5,000 to
         $7,500 for road repair. Discussion on roads took place and which road is
         the worst.
          Raymond suggested putting it on the next agenda and getting a start on
         this. Mayor Pro Tem Wilson suggested getting a meeting together in 2
         weeks to discuss roads and by then have a written plan and seeing which
         roads are in worst shape.
         Raymond also thanked James Gray for taking a day off work to help put
         out asphalt.

ITEM NUMBER IX: OLD BUSINESS

      A.     Discuss, consider and act on revisions to plat for lots 1-11 Sky View
             Ranch Block 3 requested by Walter Collins and present to attend is
             Gary Fisher,
             City Engineer.
             Gary Fisher, City Engineer handed out a packet listing the comments that
             he had regarding this plat. He has reviewed the plat and basically there
             were several items that he would like to reconsider. He read out the
             review. Justin Landes, which is the Engineer for Walter Collins said that
             the main purpose is to the plans approved or at least resolve the issues to
             get the plans approved. In A-5 they are proposing shoulders to pave 24 ft
             and then 2 ft additionally on each side for a total of 28 ft of 2 inch, type D
             asphalt with a reflective stripe. Gary said that it was 26 ft. not 24 ft. as
             they agreed. Mr. Landes said that after they agreed Walter brought to his
             attention that the prior council had approved 24 ft for that street section so
             therefore he said they thought that the 2 inch asphalt paving would be
             appropriate with the 12 ft driving lane. Gary said that he had no objection
             with that. Councilman Moran debated that the minutes were not for these
             lots.
             Councilman Moran made a motion to accept our engineer’s
             suggestion as written; we support the developer’s proposal to place 2
             inches of Type D HMAC surface instead of 2-course surface treatment
             on the roadway shoulders. We would however, suggest placing a 4-




                                                                                        58
          inch reflective paint stripe to mark the boundary between the driving
          lane and the shoulder.
          Motion seconded by Councilman Gray.
          Motion passed unanimously.

          Mayor Pro Tem Wilson made a motion that we go with what our
          engineer suggested which was 24 ft. shoulders which mean the road
          would be 26 ft. wide.
          Motion seconded by Councilman Gray. Motion passed unanimously.

          Councilman Gray made a motion to accept A-4 comment, not require
          them to have a .5 street grade if it’s going to be a .0. Motion seconded
          by Councilman Moran. Motion passed unanimously.
          Council discusses the radius of the cul-de-sac.

          Councilman Gray made a motion to accept the recommendation of
          our engineer for a 50 ft. radius cul-de-sac. Motion seconded by
          Councilman Moran. Motion passed unanimously.
          Council discussed the 5 yr. 100 yr. designs for culverts.
          Walter Collins asked for approval contingent on the fact that he will give
          the city a 100 yr. flood capability and propose to TX Dot to go with the 5
          18’s in what will do a 100 yr.
          Councilman Gray made a motion that we accept A-1 contingent with
          they meet the 100 yr. requirement.
          Motion seconded by Councilman Moran.
          Motion passed unanimously.

                                DECEMBER 8, 2005

ITEM NUMBER III: NEW BUSINESS

     B.   Discuss, consider and act on allocation of funds for road repairs.
          Mayor Miller said that the reason we really needed this meeting is because
          Commissioner Rankin gives about $15,000 per year per city to help them
          out. We have been sitting here without the help for a long time. He can
          get out in the next week or so to do some work but we need to utilize the
          $15,000 this year so that way we can be eligible after the first of the year
          to use them again. Councilman Trevino Jr. clarified that the $15,000 was
          for the labor and equipment only and the City pays for the material.
          Mayor Miller had Raymond call Devon and ask if they would help and
          they will give us $7,500 which that would go toward the material.
           Jerry Bradish said that his biggest concern was the budget because just
          the flex base is going to cost us $10,000. We have to pay for graders,
          maintenance, rollers and water trucks. If we us up the budget what is the
          city going to do if the city loses culverts, there are 8 major culverts.




                                                                                   59
The county will give us $15,000 labor; Devon is giving $7,500 for
material
Option one is fixing the base and option two is fixing the culverts.
Councilman Gray said to look at what street has the most traffic.
Mayor Pro Tem Wilson asked how much money was in the account.
Mayor Miller said that at this time we have $194,871.60 as of 12/08/05
and we have bills going out with a total of $1,256.22 this month and have
been getting good sales tax money, $12,056.48-$16,787.90 in the last 4
months.
Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said that it sounds like we could use some money
on roads.
Ray said that if we get $7,500 from Devon and take $2,500 from our
budget, which we have $13,500 which would leave us $10,000 in budget
for reserve he could work with that. We can get 95 loads of base with
$10,000. The biggest expense will be the chip seal.
Mayor Pro Tem Wilson made a practice motion that we would let
Raymond, Jerry, Luis, James and Jimmy figure out the best way to use this
and out of our city offers match the $15,000 and $7,500 which would be
$22,500 for materials and use in the next two m months. If we can’t get
the $15,000 this time maybe next time we can get it earlier next year.
Mayor Miller said he doesn’t care where it is used but just wants us to use
it and not loose it. There would be a total of $45,000 to work with.
Councilman Trevino Jr. suggested that we get what we can this year.
Councilwoman Millar made a motion that we empower Raymond with the
advice from the county who is going to give us $15,000 worth of labor
between now and the end of the year and Devon $7,500 contribution for
the roads and we empower him to spend up to at least the maximum of
another
$7,500 match the materials and see how far that will get you for the end of
the year which will give you a total budget of $30,000 see how much
culvert work and road base work you can do and mainly go on Hilltop and
Chisholm Hills which are the two worst roads in the city but not have to
come back to committee for opinion we want to impair Ray to do those
decisions and get this work done over the next month with the County’s
expertise.
Mayor Pro Tem Wilson added that we want to put culverts in January,
February and March with additional money.
Mayor Miller said that if the culverts need to be fixed then maybe put off
the streets till the spring and get the culverts done.
Councilwoman Millar made a motion that we allow Raymond to work
with the county’s expertise to use the $15,000 worth of labor before
the end of the year along with Devon’s $7,500 they’re donating; we
will match it with $7,500 from our budget to work on the roads and
culverts on Hilltop and Chisholm Hills.
Motion seconded by Mayor Pro Tem Wilson. Motion passed
unanimously.



                                                                        60

ITEM NUMBER V: COMMITTEE REPORTS
         Jerry Bradish informed the council that there have been two wrecks in the
         last two months because of speed. He suggested that the city write a letter
         requesting turn lanes at Hilltop, Chisholm Hills and Branding Iron with a
         petition to present it to TXDOT. He asked to have this topic be put on the
         next agenda. Councilman Trevino asked about the roads, what has been
         accomplished?
         Jerry said that the last time he checked with Raymond he had contacted
         the county and they haven’t got back to him and he’s been out sick.
         Mayor Miller said that he would call Robert Rankin tomorrow and find
         out what’s going on because they should have already been out here.
         Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said that for the record on what was voted on last
         time he questioned what has been done on the roads.
         Mayor Miller said that Devon brought in another $1,500.00 check for the
         roads. Mayor Pro Tem Wilson asked if we lost the $15,000.00 for the
         year.
         Mayor Miller said no that he would talk to Robert Rankin because he is
         thinking that the year is based on fiscal year not calendar year. Mayor Pro
         Tem Wilson said if we did loose the $15,000.00 help from the county we
         at least got a good start and have good money to start on the roads.

                                   FEBRUARY 2, 2006

ITEM NUMBER VIII: PUBLIC INPUT FOR ITEMS NO ON THE AGENDA:
         David Riddle – Streets
         He said that he has lived out here for ten years and was told the county
         was going to take over the roads after the development was finished. He
         said
         that the patching was not doing any good. Instead of patching we need to
         dig the soft dirt out and put gravel or something; then it would be more
         stable when the road is topped.
         Pat Wheeler- Roads
         About the roads she said that they were so bad. She said that when she
         moved out here it was just a dirt road and it was a whole lot better than
         what we have now. She said that the roads out here are tearing up the
         cars.
         Ferol Matthews- Street Repairs.
         She said that we would be better off with a gravel road that could stay
         graded rather than what we got. She urged the council to please
         understand that there is money in the budget to help fix the roads.




                                                                                  61
             Mayor Pro Tem Wilson asked Mayor Miller to briefly go over what we
             have discussed on the roads.
             Mayor Miller said that Devon donated $7,500.00 specifically for the
             roads. The City matched that amount. This would total $15,000.00. In the
             city budget for roads we still have $10,000.00. Devon donated another
             $1,500.00 for the roads after that. The county is going to supply up to
             $15,000.00 of equipment and labor. Mayor Miller said that his son sent a
             nice respectful e-mail to Robert Rankin basically asking him to do what he
             promised and he said that the next day Rankin was up here at City hall and
             met with Ray to start working on the roads.

ITEM NUMBER IX: NEW BUSINESS:
     A.  Discuss, consider and act on writing a letter with a petition to present
         to TX DOT requesting turning lanes at Hilltop Trail, Chisholm Hills
         and Branding Iron.
         Councilman Moran suggested that we include Sky View Ranch also since
         it’s another subdivision. Councilman Gray said to have Monica and Ray
         draft a letter. Jerry said that we need to have a least one hundred
         signatures with the letter and then take to TX Dot. He said that 2264 is in
         the process of being engineered to be redone and maybe we can get it in
         by the time they design the makings of the road.
         Councilman Gray made a motion that Monica, Jerry and Ray start
         the ball rolling as far as petitioning TX Dot to put turning lanes in our
         subdivisions in our city.
         Motion seconded by Councilman Moran.                     Motion passed
         unanimously.

X. OLD BUSINESS:

      E.     Discuss, consider and act on Road Money, agreement with county,
             Devon Energy Operating CO L.P. donation, money the council voted
             to put in with the county money.
             Councilman Gray made a motion to open up for discussion. Motion
             seconded by Councilman Moran. Ray told the council that he met with
             Rankin Wednesday the 1st. They drove the streets and checked all the
             culverts. The culverts were in good shape. For a 1000 foot of road repair
             it would cost $11,744.00. Rankin also offered to bring in a crew for three
             to four days to the city and patch all the potholes and worn areas.
             The county would provide trucks and labor and the only cost to the city
             would be for the material used. Repairs could start February 6, 2006 if we
             let them know by Friday.
             Council discussed the money that was put aside for the roads. $9,000.00
             donation from Devon, $7,500.00 from the city and $13,000.00 in budget.
             Total money for roads is $29,500.00. The potholes can take a couple of
             days. It would cost the city about $14,000.00 to $15,000.00 to do the




                                                                                    62
     1000 foot right now. Then the other half of the money we can keep
     adding to it.
     Mayor Miller said that Hilltop Trail is bad but not as bad compared to
     Chisholm Hills.
     Ray said that the main priority is to patch the potholes and if there is time
     then they can go back and smooth some of the other patches.
     Mayor Miller said that many people think that he brags about Chisholm
     Hills because he lives on that street but he said that was not the point
     because for everyone’s information he said he was closing on his property
     Tuesday.
     His property is sold and he has been looking at property on Hilltop and
     some on Latham and some on Chisholm Hills toward the end.
     He said he would be moving somewhere in the city, so it’s not because it’s
     his street he lives on.
     Mayor Pro Tem Wilson suggested that they do a four to five year plan.
     David said that the city would probably be better off with a gravel road
     and keep it grated.
     Ferol agreed. Council discussed the cost of the maintainers.
     Mayor Pro Tem Wilson suggested that Jerry meet with the road committee
     and the neighbors out there and let them have a workshop and see what
     they think about gravel and the paved.
     Mayor Pro Tem Wilson made a motion that we go ahead and spend
     up to $5,000.00 for the asphalt patching at this time, but Jerry on the
     Road Committee meet with Ray and with the people in that
     neighborhood and come up with some suggestion to us about going
     with gravel or asphalt for next month.
     Councilman Trevino said that they would follow up with city council.
      Motion seconded by Councilman Moran.                     Motion passed
     unanimously.
F.   Discuss, consider and act on road and road construction (drainage) in
     New Fairview and in particular Chisholm Hills, Ray Blevins will help
     present this
     information.
     Ray said that basically on the road construction we will have to figure out
     how much gravel and how much base we need. Mayor Pro Tem Wilson
     asked about the drainage. Ray said that he has not had anyone approach
     him about any drainage problems.
G.   Discuss, consider and act on Drainage on entrance at 407 in the
     Montana Homes addition in Sky View, Ray Blevins will help present
     this information.
     Ray said that as far as he knows the drainage issue on Montana Homes
     was approved when the preliminary plat went through for Walter Collins.
     The state singed off on it and the council approved it. There should be no
     other issues on this.




                                                                               63
          Councilman Moran said that the culvert put in is going to have to meet the
          100 yr flood plain because that is what our engineer suggested and that’s
          what they have to do.
          Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said that this was back on the agenda to give us
          some knowledge and input on what has happened.
          Ray will follow up on it.

     H.   Discuss, consider and act on ordinances concerning truck weights of
          trash trucks on New Fairview roads. Also trash company and city
          agreements.
          Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said that the reason he put this on the agenda was
          because of some of the things he heard and there was certain trucks that
          were not allowed on our streets. What is the situation?
          Mayor Miller said that they are charging too much, no franchise money
          unless we let them run the big trucks on the streets. What can we do? We
          are paying about $24.00 for pick up once a week.
          Ray said the only thing we can do is put it out for bid but then we would
          have to worry about the big trucks.
          Mayor Miller said that maybe we can tell them that no trucks over weight
          limit.
          Discussed several trash companies that the city had in the past.
          Mayor Pro Tem said to wait and see what happens with the roads. Tabled

ITEM NUMBER V: OLD BUSINESS

     A.   Discuss, consider and act on letter to TXDOT to petition for turn
          lanes on Hilltop Trail, Chisholm Hills Dr. and Branding Iron.
          Councilman Gray said that he read through the letter and the only
          suggestion he had was to include all subdivisions in the city and also Hwy
          407 to be included with 2264.
          Monica and Raymond will redraft the letter with the changes.
          Councilman Gray made a motion that we send TXDOT a letter to include
          what is on this letter and include all subdivision on all State Highways in
          the city and 2264. Motion seconded by Councilman Trevino. Motion
          passed unanimously.
          Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said that for a future agenda item he would like
          for the council to work on another letter for the church.




                                                                                   64

ITEM NUMBER V: COMMITTEE REPORTS
         Basically Ray said that he figured up how much it would cost to do
         Chisholm Hills. Just to put base down on Chisholm Hills it would cost
         about $24,000.00
         This figure is with no maintainer, no roller and no water included. He said
         he talked to the mayor about it.
         The Mayor said that the people on Chisholm Hills do not want a gravel
         road. Problem solved. Ray said that if we would have done it we would
         be $9,400.00 in the hole and with our own city ordinance it states that if
         the city has a gravel road we need to keep it maintained, watered and
         oiled. Its cost prohibited. Just do what we can with what we have.
         Councilman Trevino suggested that we do work on the road that has the
         most wear.
         Ray said Hilltop Trail has the most wear and the most traffic. Ray
         suggested that we repair the road as we go rather than 1000 ft. on road.
         Ray said that the county always has some excuse on why they don’t come
         out like they say. He mentioned that there were some hard feelings
         between the county because Robert Rankin was sent e-mail by a citizen of
         the city that was rude and no reason for. Ray said that by what he was told
         he would be upset to. Ray said that he has calmed things down and the
         county will help us. He said that in December we voted in $15,000.00 and
         we have $500 a month set up in the budget for roads.
         Mayor Pro Tem Wilson asked Ray to find out how much a maintainer
         cost.
         City Attorney told the council that they could continue later or come back
         because the report was pretty broad and this could be discussed in item G.
         Council will continue discussion later in the meeting.

ITEM NUMBER X: OLD BUSINESS

       A.     Discuss, consider and act on letter to TXDOT to petition for turn
              lanes on Hilltop
              Trail, Chisholm Hills Dr. and Branding Iron.
              Ray said that the letter has been rewritten with the amendments made from
              the
              last meeting. He said that right now there are about 70 names on the
              petition and
              we need about 30 more signatures to complete that petition. After that
              Ray said
              he would hand carry it to Bill Nelson and after that it goes to Ft. Worth
              and then




                                                                                    65
         it goes to Austin. Ray said that he left the petition at the different
         convenient stores. Councilman Moran offered to get a petition and help
         by gathering more
         signatures in his subdivision.
    G.   Discuss, consider and act on road committee workshop to discuss
         whether the city goes with gravel or paved roads. (Mayor Pro Tem
         Wilson)
         Mayor Pro Tem Wilson asked if there was a way that we could get a
         report on which road needs the most work.
         Councilman Gray asked if anyone has done a traffic survey and see what
         road gets the most traffic.
         Mayor Pro Tem Wilson asked Ray if he could get a good analysis to let us
         know about how many house on the streets, traffic and pot holes, and
         repairs needed. Get a factual report. Mayor Pro Tem Wilson told Ray to
         get another written report on the expenses for when citizens come in and
         for the web on how much it cost to fix the roads.


                                  MAY 4, 2006
                                REGULAR MEETING

ITEM NUMBER IX: OLD BUSINESS

    A.   Discuss, consider and act on allocation of money approved for roads,
         Chisholm Hills, what are going to do and what we have done so far,
         follow up.
         Jerry Bradish said that the streetlights were put up at the entrances of each
         road in Chisholm Hills. Ray said that as of February 2, 2006 we had
         $29,500.00 in our original budget. We set aside $16,500.00 for Chisholm
         Hills road. The amount left in the budget then was $13,000.00. He said
         that so far we have spent $1,905.96 on asphalt only no labor. The amount
         we have right now in our active budget is $10,919.04. Ray said that the
         money is still in there but the problem is that we can’t get our county
         commissioner to come out and bring the equipment to do the roads. We
         have the funds set up and everything ready just can’t get the equipment
         and the men.
         Councilman Moran said that he felt like we should do $26,000 worth of
         work in Chisholm Hills because we have had people up here, and we have
         the money.
         Mayor Miller said he was very disappointed in Rankin because he hasn’t
         done anything he promised. He said that Rankin has been busy redoing
         some of Kyle’s mess up there on 4421. Ray said that with what we got
         remaining on our budget which is $10,000 that would not have enough to
         pay for the labor to do that work.
         Councilman Moran said that his concern was that we were talking about
         doing 1000ft and haven’t done anything, we need to do something. He



                                                                                    66
said we had a good discussion and we have the money and that is a shame
not to do it.
Ray said he wrote a letter to Dick Chase and Robert Rankin to the
Commissioners Court so it would have to be read out loud and on record
why aren’t we getting his cooperation he promised it to us and have not
got a reply back from either one. He said it was sent certified so it would
get on record and be read out loud and expressed our opinion why you did
not fulfill your obligations. Letter was received on 4/2/06 and went to
commissioner’s court that following Monday.
Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said that he did not want to put all the blame on
Rankin or Chase for the reason that we did repair work on those roads
during the last 3 to 4 years at different times through other means and it
seems like we are sitting here putting all the blame on Rankin. We may
need to go ahead and do some of the work using another route.
Mayor Miller said that the problem was that with the streets that have been
patched we have areas that look like roller coasters.
Councilman Gray said that the roads were accepted the way they were.
The roads need to be ripped out and redone.
Councilman Trevino said that the roads were accepted by the mayor and
the developer and later found out about it.
Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said that so far in the last 6-8 months we have not
done anything.
Mayor Miller disagreed and said that we have done some potholes, Jerry
and Councilman Gray agreed.
Councilman Gray said that to better ourselves we need to think about
investing in a roller because you can lay the asphalt down with a tractor
but with a roller you can pack it.
Jerry said that he and Ray have been looking for a small 3 footer and
haven’t found anything yet.
Councilman Gray said that our hands are tied quite a bit because we don’t
have the equipment.
Councilman Moran asked how much it would cost to hire.
Ray said he could have an exact price on it way before the next meeting
but if we hire just the manpower and the trucks to haul it in we are looking
at about $30,000 for 1000ft of road.
Jerry said that this was the thing that the county had the equipment and
labor and we were only going to pay for the material.
Councilman Moran asked if we have picked the 1000ft of road that we are
going to do.
Mayor Miller said yes, 2264 up on Chisholm Hills.
Mayor Pro Tem Wilson asked if that was on Hilltop. Councilman Gray
said no, it was on Chisholm Hills Rd.
Ray said that we do have more traffic according to the survey on Hilltop
Trl. because of the number of cars but Chisholm Hills is torn up also, even
though we have less traffic on it.




                                                                         67
Mayor Miller said if you went percentage wise, Chisholm Hills Rd. needs
the most work.
Ray agreed we would have to go for that since that was promised already
and that money has been set aside for Chisholm Hills Rd.
Mayor Miller said he was going to get a hold of Rankin.
Mayor Pro Tem Wilson suggested that the mayor, Jerry and Raymond
develop a years plan for the council and the city and present it to us on
what we can do because nobody should be sitting here saying what needs
to be done because this has been going on for a year. He thinks right now
we are using Rankin as an escape goat.
Mayor Miller said no but he promised us.
Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said that ok he promised us but we have a lot of
council members saying here we want to put money in fixing the roads.
There are different places to get machinery. Ritchie Brothers is having an
auction this week.
Jerry said that he can give us a cost but do we want to go to the bank.
Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said to give it to us to where we can show the
public.
City attorney suggested purchasing the equipment together with other
small cities around.
Councilman Moran said he suggested that before. Councilman Moran said
that a lot of stuff we can rent. He said that the worst case he could see was
that we would spend more then what is in our budget to hire somebody
and if we have to do that he said he would rather spend more money and
say yes we got a 1000ft accomplished this year.
Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said that many people appreciate us patching pot
holes. Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said that he knew were we could find a
roller. Ritchie Brothers. He said they have multibillion dollars worth of
equipment. They bring in all the road equipment. Sometimes you get good
deals there and sometimes you don’t. They have one once every three
months.
Councilman Moran suggested that we try the county one more time and if
it’s not going to be anytime soon then we move ahead.
Mayor ProTem Wilson said that it seems like we are trying to make the
whole community mad by not doing anything. He said that we can at least
lay out an organized plan with different price options.
Jerry said that if the county would have held up to there agreement we
would have had it done before Christmas and we could be looking at
doing another road by now.
Councilman Gray said again relying on the county might not be a good
source of action.
Mayor Miller said to keep looking for the roller.
Mayor Pro Tem Wilson said that he has three Ritchie Brothers catalogs at
the house. We can authorize Ray to go and look at some of the equipment.
He said this would be part of a plan that you would lay out.




                                                                          68
                                JUNE 1, 2006
                    EXECUTIVE SESSION/REGULAR MEETING

ITEM NUMBER IX: NEW BUSINESS
    E.  Discuss, consider and act on purchasing city equipment- Mayor
        Mayor Miller said that last year the city council authorized Ray and him to
        spend up to $6,000.00 on equipment.
        Ray said that he found a 5 ft roller like the one we were looking for with a
        tire lift, it’s mobile so you can move it around, it has a gasoline engine
        which would be easy to work with, the machine is 10 yrs. Old, well kept
        and was used in a construction company. Ray said that the only thing it
        had wrong was that it had a leak on the power steering but they said they
        would fit it. It’s $5,000.00 for the roller. Ray said that he made Monica go
        ahead and write a check out for it and that way it would be ready if we did
        purchase it and if not we just void the check. Ray said that he found some
        dump trucks and we just missed them for $3,000.00. He said that if we had
        a dump truck we could haul in our own material because the hauling alone
        that was just brought in ran us $150.00 to $175.00 a load. He said that he
        had two loads hauled in from the county the other day but it didn’t cost us
        because it was the county we just paid for the asphalt. Ray said that if we
        had a dump truck we could haul the stuff ourselves and it would put the
        cost of having to rent or pay someone else.
        Mayor Miller said that Ray is basically saying that $5,000.00 of that
        $6,000.00 is going to be gone and if he finds a dump truck for $3,000.00
        or $4,000.00 you got to move on them fast, he needs more money
        approved.
        Councilman Moran said that he agrees but his concern is that here we are
        buying all this equipment and where is it going to be stored.
        Ray said that right now he is storing the equipment up by the water tower.
        He said that we have temporary permission from Wise electric to store it
        there and it’s all protected by homeland security. Ray said he would like
        for us to get a building to store the equipment but that the problem is
        where we are going to put the building. He said that here it’s so far off the
        road to take it back and forth and it’s the same way if you need it
        somewhere else. He said that at least if we had one central location and a
        dump truck then we would have a way to move it
        Ray asked for at least another $3,000.00 to be approved.
        Jerry said that if we had a dump truck we wouldn’t need to get any
        dumpsters.
        Ray said that the three dumpsters we paid for to put on 146 Chisholm Hills
        would have paid for the dump truck.
        Councilman Dunlap made a motion that we approve up to $3,000.00
        for further city equipment. Motion seconded by Councilman Georgia.
        Motion passed unanimously.




                                                                                  69
      D.     Discuss, consider and act on cost of hiring labor, purchasing and or
             renting equipment to fix the Roads (Ray & Jerry) – Council Meeting
             1. Report how much cost to hire labor/equipment
             2. A years plan on what we can do on fixing the roads.
             3. Organized plan
             Ray said that since we are not waiting on the county he got some bids. He
             said he got one bid and has some more coming in. The bid he got back
             from A-1 Asphalt. To do 3 inches to compact with lime and concrete it
             runs $40.00 a foot with 2 coats of chip seal $60.00 a foot for asphalt 3
             inches thick so if we do 500 ft. of chip seal it is going to run us $20,000.00
             and if we do 3 inch layer asphalt it is going to cost us $30,000.00 for 500
             foot. The price has increased 40 %.
             Councilman Moran said if we have picked out a place or street to work on.
             Ray said this is for any street. We will roughly spend $17,000. Ray said
             that if we would have had the county it would be $1,000 but we can’t
             depend on the county. Ray suggested that we at least put the asphalt down
             and do it right not just a quick fix. $30,000. This is just one company we
             have more coming in, the
             Others might be cheaper. The asphalt and gas is going up. Ray said that
             this was just information provided.

                                       JULY 20, 2006

ITEM NUMBER VII:
     COMMITTEE REPORTS
         Jerry Bradish said that there is problems with the water truck s on the city
         roads. Suggest that we put some signs up that allow no oil filed trucks on
         our roads. Ray has already called Devon about it.

ITEM NUMBER XII: OLD BUSINESS ITEMS
     C.   Discuss, consider and act on density ordinance
          Discussion to edit Section One the standard Roadway lane width.
          Councilman Lou Moran made a motion to read in Section One
          Ordinance 2005-05-105 any residential street with more than 35 residents
          to be changed from 35 to 40 foot width.
          Mayor Wilson made a suggestion that we put this on the next agenda
          This can then be typed up with the change and it also gives Council time
          To think about it.
     F.   Discuss, consider and act on explanation on why the other tractor and
          mower were rented to in Sky View Ranch Estates.
          Ray Blevins said instead of tearing up City tractor a rental was used
          instead at the Cost of $200.00
ITEM NUMBER XII:
     OLD BUSINESS ITEMS
     C.   Discuss, consider and act on concrete streets verses asphalt streets,
          cost & what other cities are doing



                                                                                        70
               Engineer said you can make good or bad out of asphalt or concrete.
               This needs to be looked at for 15 to 25 years in the future how the roads
               would be built. Sub-division standard should have the kind/type of roads.
               Asphalt is quicker to fix than concrete. Subdivision review as a whole.
               Review our present roads that we have and give options
               8 hours looking and give us some suggestion.
               Councilman John Dunlap made a motion that we authorize the
               Engineer to dedicate 8 hours to the examination of the sub-division
               ordinance and bring back to the Council the highlights on that and as
               the standards on the roadways and make recommendation to city
               council on August 10th, 2006 meeting.

                    EXECUTIVE SESSION/SPECIAL MEETING
                              AUGUST 3, 2006

        A.     Discuss, consider and act on patching street repair work.
               Monica told the council that the road work that was approved last month
               for 500ft on Chisholm Hills for $32,500.00 will be started in 5 weeks.
               They work will be 20ft wide road, includes removing old asphalt, haul off,
               add lime and Portland cement, add 4 inches of base then pack surface with
               3 inches of asphalt then pack $65.00 per liner ft. The contract was faxed
               yesterday.
               Mayor Wilson said that we have some options; we still have the possibility
               of getting the roller, using our tractor, calling in trucks to get our asphalt
               in, hiring someone to supervise the job or getting some bids to have some
               one come in and patch the roads in Chisholm Hills Subdivision.
               Councilman Dunlap said that he would check up on the roller tomorrow
               morning to see if it has been fixed.
               Jerry suggested that we store the city tractor in the back of his yard since
               it’s fenced in and locked. Jerry said that if the city gets a grater that he
               would volunteer to run the grater for a year and in the meantime he will
               train someone to ran it or after a year the city pay him. Jerry said that he
               would be available on the weekends to supervise the road work.
               Mayor Wilson asked Jerry to put in a bid for patching pot holes. Some
               other bids will be coming in as well. Put it on the next agenda. Jerry will
               put in a bid and Monica will get other bids.

                                   AUGUST 10, 2006


ITEM NUMBER VII. COMMITTEE REPORTS
          Jerry Bradish - Road Committee- he asked about the road contract that
          was approved last month, who is going to supervise and see how deep they
          are going to mix it. The contract doesn’t say. It has to have gradation, lime
          8 inches deep and then wait 3 days mix it again and then come back and
          get the density and gradation. Mayor Wilson said that we can talk about it



                                                                                          71
some more later in the meeting. Councilman Dunlap said that there was a
mobile home that was moved in without a permit and it did damage to the
road. Jerry and Councilman Dunlap took pictures of the damage. The road
was cut real good right thru the middle. Jerry stated that if any one sees the
trucks coming in or out to please help us stop this by getting the number
and name on the truck. He said that an empty gravel truck meets our
weight limit.




                                                                           72
