What does $18 million pay for in Corpus Christi?


Repairs for elevators in Corpus Christi’s City Hall building and a variety of improvements for city golf courses could be in the works.

The City Council on Tuesday will ponder whether to issue nearly $7 million more in certificates of obligation to finance a variety of additional projects.

The council in September approved its Capital Improvement Budget for the 2020-21 fiscal year. At that time, city officials identified 11 projects totaling $11.7 million that were to be paid for through certificates of obligation.

Among them was $1.3 million in cooling and heating work at the Museum of Science and History, $2 million in road improvements at the Cefe Valenzuela Landfill and $1.2 million in work for a police substation in Flour Bluff.

City staff later identified more projects that were deemed necessary enough to include in the spending package, potentially costing an additional $6.67 million, Heather Hurlbert, the city’s director of finance and business analysis, wrote in a May 17 memo to City Manager Peter Zanoni.

The new projects also would include solid waste and landfill facility capital repairs and improvements, city documents say.

The council meets Tuesday at 11:30 a.m.

A majority of the council would need to approve of a change for the new projects to be financed by certificates.
