A Bryan veterinarian is getting financial assistance from the city council. Approval was given at the last Bryan council meeting following no discussion to reimburse up to $100,000 dollars in building a sanitary sewer line as part of a new commercial development. The project, along Harvey Mitchell Parkway near Jane Long intermediate school, includes a 10,000 square foot vet clinic. The nine acre tract will also have land for future office and retail structures. Dr. James Baggs has until September of next year, weather permitting, to complete construction of the new clinic to receive the reimbursement.
The Bryan city council at its last meeting approved directing $229,000 dollars in federal pandemic grant money towards a summertime food program. Without discussion, the council entered a contract with the Brazos Valley Food Bank, which will use other local non-profit agencies to screen who will receive 30 pounds of food a week through the end of September to an estimated 220 unduplicated recipients in Bryan. The food bank’s request, according to background information given to the city, local food partnering agencies that includes Bridge Ministries, Brazos Church Pantry, and 12th Can indicate strained local food resources due to the pandemic. College Station has a similar arrangement with what the food bank calls “Project Got EM”.
