Consider an ordinance authorizing an Interlocal Agreement with the Baytown Municipal Development District for the the Citizen's Bank Building Renovation Project.

This proposed ordinance authorizes an Interlocal Agreement with the Baytown Municipal Development District for funding a portion of the Citizen's Bank Building Renovation Project in an amount not to exceed $113,775.

The existing building was once the Citizens Bank, which has been vacant for a number of years and has suffered from neglect and decay.  The City's Texas Avenue revival initiative places importance on complete block faces and sought to preserve this building for the integrity of the Downtown Arts District.  The existing Utility Billing offices are in an older building, which is very small and has a lack of privacy for billing customers. The number of staff has outgrown the space of the building causing cramped working conditions.

The existing Citizen’s Bank building will be renovated and a portion rebuilt to house the City's Utility Billing Division of the Finance Department.
This will include saving the exterior facade and adding a new roof and a new internal and external envelope construction, ensuring structural integrity of the new building. The interior build out will include a lobby area, expanded area for customer service stations, public and employee restrooms, management/supervisor offices, collections and billing specialist offices, a conference room, an employee break room, meter operations, technician offices and a meter testing area. 

The MDD board approved this item at its meeting on May 7, 2020.
Staff recommends approval.
