Brownwood is looking to consider approval of two projects at the city council meeting this Tuesday.

In the agenda, is the decision to approve reconstruction of Fisk Street from Austin Avenue to Main Street. The plan will create a new roadway along Adams Street, Baker and South Broadway. The road will be made with a black base, the city council agenda says.

The reconstruction will allow a faster flow of traffic and reduce dust issues. Upgrades to the sidewalks at the intersections will be made as well. The plan will also allow a minimum amount of underground utility work, manholes and valve boxes to be adjusted. If approved, the project will take approximately 12 months and will cost around $1.23 million.

The second item in the agenda is to approve installing a flag pole in front of the Walgreen's on West Commerce Street. The American Legion wants to dedicate the flag pole to Brown County citizens. An agreement is required by TxDOT because the use of property is in the right-of-way that they manage and maintain.

The flag pole is estimated to be 40 ft tall. The American Legions has agreed to pay for the installation and maintenance of the pole.
