LAMPASAS — Residents in the Hoffpauir Subdivision are one step closer to better water and sewer systems after Monday’s City Council meeting.

Council members approved a task order for a professional engineering service to begin designing improvements for the residents of the subdivision, who experience issues with their drains backing up when showering or doing laundry in their homes.

“We’ve had quite a bit of neighborhood interest,” said Randy Clark, director of public works, at the meeting, referring to a meeting in August when Hoffpauir Subdivision residents filled the chambers to inform the council of their problems with drainage.

Eckermann Engineering provided the quote for engineering the improvements, which totaled $77,525. The funds would come from budgeted amounts for the year.

Derrek Eckermann told the council that the current layout, which will serve 33 residences in the subdivision, could be extended slightly farther south if needed in the future.

The council also:

Approved awarding redesign of the city website to Civic Plus in the amount of $30,373.09.

Re-appointed T.J. Monroe, Sid Ball and Neal Leavell to the Lampasas Economic Development Corporation board to another two-year term.

Approved paying artist Nic Noblique $24,310, taken from insurance reimbursement, after his work, “Lost in Wisconsin,” was deemed a total loss in vandalism done at Campbell Park.
