March 3, 2014 by Phil Major

Aledo City Council approved the final plat for the Brookhollow Addition Thursday.
The subdivision on the north side of FM 1187 south will include 127 home sites, with lots ranging from 7,000 to more than 10,000 square feet and prices from the $200,000s to the $400,000s.
Also at Tuesday’s meeting the council was introduced to the city’s first animal control officer, Alyssa Galyean, who began her duties Feb. 24.
The council approved an amendment to the zoning ordinance requiring a minimum eight-foot masonry screening wall for development along a railroad track
The council reviewed updated plans for a new city hall. The 10,389-square foot building would be placed at the site of the current structure, which would be razed.
Updating city hall has been included in the city’s capital improvement projects for several years, but no funding is available.
The council will discuss possible ways to finance the $3.5 million project when it takes up budget deliberations later in the year.
For a complete look at the council’s discussions, including an update of the thoroughfare plan, be sure to pick up a March 7 copy of The Community News.
