Port of Beaumont to issue $500M in bonds for capital improvements 
Port of Beaumont Orange County Terminal
The Port of Beaumont Board of Commissioners unanimously approved the issuance of $500 million in revenue bonds on September 4 to fund a public-private capital improvement project.

Details of the project have not been made public, but the initiative will serve the efforts of the port's energy transportation partner to increase its oil and gas intake operations. More than 40 trains a day transport ethanol, gasoline, and heavy crude from Canada to the port.

Earlier this year, the port finished work on a $12.5 million overpass with another overpass included in the port's proposed capital budget for next fiscal year. Port officials also are building a $100 million terminal that is scheduled to open in 2021 and are reporting they have $134 million in capital projects planned for the next fiscal year.
Austin health district takes off with lease of former hospital property
Rendering of Central Health office building
An Austin foundation is spearheading the site redevelopment of the former University Medical Center Brackenridge with plans to build a new 17-story office building that will serve as the flagship for the Innovation District by Capital City Innovation project.

The 2033 Higher Education Development Foundation, a nonprofit created to support The University of Texas (UT), signed a 99-year ground lease for two blocks on the property. The project includes demolition of a three-story structure in one block to erect the office building scheduled for completion in early 2022.

Central Health, the health care district for Travis County and owner of the property, will leverage an estimated $460 million in revenues from the foundation's lease and rent from other tenants, including Dell Medical School, into funding for county health care to serve low-income families.

The joint venture, which includes UT and Ascension Seton, aims to support and encourage innovation among academic institutions, health organizations, companies, startups and entrepreneurs, developers, and government.
Counties along the Texas coast are seeking some of the nearly $360 million in federal funding available to aid in restoring and conserving habitats still recovering from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Toby Baker, executive director of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), collaborated with various Texas-based workgroups and county judges representing eligible counties to form a list of 23 proposed projects. Of these, he may submit only six for consideration by the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council.

The Council represents the other Gulf Coast states and the departments of Agriculture, the Army, Commerce, Homeland Security, and the Interior, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Its planning goals are to restore and conserve habitat, restore water quality and quantity, replenish and protect living coastal and marine resources, and enhance community resilience.

Funding will come from the Gulf Coast Restoration Trust Fund created by the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities, and Revived Economies of the Gulf Coast States Act (RESTORE Act).

Baker will host public meetings on September 9 in Galveston and September 10 in Corpus Christi to collect public comments on these identified projects. His final selection of projects will be made in consultation with Gov. Greg Abbott's office.
Amarillo mulling $319M civic center renovation, 2020 bond referendum 
Rendering of Amarillo Civic Center Complex
Amarillo city leaders shared a new $300 million civic center renovation proposal on September 4 that would feature an expansion of the existing Amarillo Civic Center Complex (ACCC), a new arena, and more parking.

Although the plan has been under discussion for eight years, efforts are gaining momentum. According to the city's website, a $279 million bond referendum is being considered for May 2020 to create a modern ACCC to serve evolving entertainment demands.

At an estimated total cost of $319 million, the project would renovate and expand the existing civic center to add a 75,000-square-foot exhibit hall, 10,100-seat arena, and expanded 30,000-square-foot ballroom.

Plans calls for the new ACCC to feature natural lighting, a large lobby area with a food court, internet cafe, exhibit areas, and an outdoor central plaza/park that would act as a hub for a neighboring hotel and the Hodgetown baseball park.

An additional $28 million would go toward the relocation of City Hall to an existing building in the downtown area, renovation of the Santa Fe Depot, and construction of infrastructure improvements associated with the project.

The city's Recommended Concept Plan (RCP) includes a timeline that allows for currently scheduled events to occur during the construction and renovation phases of the project.
Texas Transportation Institute opens new headquarters on A&M campus
Transportation Institute headquarters ribbon cutting
Combining four different Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) facilities into one headquarters on The Texas A&M University System RELLIS Campus was cause for celebration with a ribbon-cutting ceremony September 4.

The new headquarters will support TTI's research programs and house administrative offices for its Bryan-College Station staff. TTI also relocated its driving simulation and visibility research laboratories to the new 178,380-square-foot building, which cost $71.8 million.

Dr. Jenny McGown
Dr. Jenny McGown, Superintendent, Klein ISD

Career Highlights and EducationI am so grateful to serve as the superintendent of schools in Klein ISD where I've had the privilege of spending my entire professional career. I've served as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal, and as a district leader, I've served as executive director of student performance, chief learning officer, and deputy superintendent. I'm a proud graduate of Texas A&M University and earned a Masters and a Doctorate in Education from Sam Houston State University.

We focus on the whole student, committing to building on and maintaining our long tradition of excellence and innovation in academics, athletics, the arts, and more.

Advice you would give a new hire in your office: Klein is family, and we take care of each other. Build strong relationships with your students and colleagues, and seize the opportunity to harness our collective power to change young people's lives for the better.

If I had the opportunity to leave work early, I could probably be found: Spending time enjoying the outdoors. I love early morning runs listening to my favorite podcasts and spending time with my family.

People would be surprised to know that I: People would be surprised to know how much I love using party poppers for any celebration, big or small. I just love how all the streamers and confetti add something extra special to the celebration!

One thing I wish more people knew about Klein ISD: In Klein ISD, we have an old saying - deep roots, strong branches. Our Klein Family has a strong tradition of excellence and innovation that resonates with our community, and it's what brings our students back to raise their own families and even serve as teachers and leaders. We draw strength from our traditions in honoring the best of the present and creating an even more beautiful and hopeful future. People are what make Klein such a beautiful place to live, learn, and work, and I am honored to serve our community.
Following the tragedies in El Paso and Odessa, Gov. Greg Abbott issued eight executive orders on September 5 to help prevent further mass shootings.

The executive orders are:

No. 1 Within 30 days of this order, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) shall develop standardized intake questions that can be used by all Texas law-enforcement agencies to better identify whether a person calling the agency has information that should be reported to the Texas Suspicious Activity Reporting Network.

No. 2 Within 30 days of this order, the DPS shall develop clear guidance, based on the appropriate legal standard, for when and how Texas law-enforcement agencies should submit Suspicious Activity Reports.

No. 3 Within 60 days of this order, the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement shall make training available to educate all law enforcement officers regarding the standards that will be developed pursuant to orders No. 1 and No. 2.

No. 4 The DPS shall create and conduct an initiative to raise public awareness and understanding of how Suspicious Activity Reports are used by law enforcement agencies to identify potential mass shooters or terroristic threats, so that the general public and friends, family members, coworkers, neighbors, and classmates will be more likely to report information about potential gunmen.

No. 5 The DPS shall work with the Texas Education Agency and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board on ways to better inform schools, students, staff, and families about the importance of Suspicious Activity Reports and how to initiate that process.

No. 6 The DPS shall work with local law enforcement, mental-health professionals, school districts, and others to create multidisciplinary threat assessment teams for each of its regions, and when appropriate shall coordinate with federal partners.

No. 7 The DPS, as well as the Office of the Governor, shall use all available resources to increase staff at all fusion centers in Texas for the purpose of better collecting and responding to Suspicious Activity Reports, and better monitoring and analyzing social media and other online forums, for potential threats.

No. 8 Beginning January 1, 2020, all future grant awards from the Office of the Governor to counties shall require a commitment that the county will report at least 90 percent of convictions within seven business days to the Criminal Justice Information System at the DPS. By January 1, 2021, such reporting must take place within five business days.
Potential sites for desalination plants
City of Corpus Christi officials recently announced their intentions to apply for a State Water Implementation Fund for Texas (SWIFT) loan from the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) to assist with financing the construction of two seawater desalination plants.

After receiving updates on estimated water supply demand and financial considerations for the construction of two seawater desalination plants, city leaders are recommending that Corpus Christi develop a procurement process for a seawater desalination plant capable of producing 10 million gallons per day and expandable to 20 million gallons per day.

The city has identified two potential sites for the plants - one along the Inner Harbor and one in San Patricio County in the La Quinta Channel area - that benefit from access to power and water distribution systems and proximity to demand.

Large increases in water demands are projected to occur in the coming years due to the continued economic growth of the region. Corpus Christi is the regional water supplier for more than 500,000 people in seven counties throughout the Coastal Bend. City officials recommend that a new water supply should be in place within two to three years to meet the expected water demands.

A seawater desalination plant could be operational in 24 months once all permits and land acquisitions are obtained. According to city documents, major industries are ready to partner in further efforts and help with financing.
Recent Wichita Falls ISD board meeting
Wichita Falls ISD board members deliberated a 10-year capital projects plan at a work session September 3 where they focused on elementary school construction and expansion.

Trustees considered construction of two elementary schools each with a capacity of 700 students.

Discussion of expansions focused on adding from six to 12 classrooms at Scotland Park, Southern Hills, West Foundation, Cunningham, Milam with one new restroom, Haynes, and Sheppard campuses.

The board also weighed closing Fain, Crockett, Lamar, Jefferson, Zundy, Franklin, and Burgess campuses.

Officials estimated the total cost of these projects at $171.9 million.

No action was taken, but trustees plan to discuss secondary facilities at a future meeting. Superintendent Michael Kuhrt said a timeline including costs might come together in about a month after more board meetings.
Laredo City Council approves RFQ for municipal water park design 
Laredo councilmembers voted on September 3 to issue a request for qualifications (RFQ) for the design of a municipal water park.

During their discussions, councilmembers did not state a desired cost or size; however, they said they would want the water park to be close to the minor league baseball stadium and multi-purpose arena in the city's entertainment district.

Revenues would come from the city's sports venue tax, which constitutes .25 percent of Laredo's 8.25 percent sales tax.

City officials are using other municipal water parks in Texas as examples, such as those owned and operated by the cities of Round Rock and Canyon.
UT, National Science Foundation launch 5th-fastest supercomputer
Representatives from the National Science Foundation (NSF) joined The University of Texas at Austin (UT) on September 3 to officially launch Frontera, the fastest supercomputer at any university and fifth-most powerful system in the world.

Frontera has been assisting science applications since June and allowing more than 36 teams to conduct research on various topics such as black hole physics, climate modeling, and drug design by using simulation, data analysis, and artificial intelligence at previously impossible scales.

A $63 million award from the NSF's Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure served as the catalyst for the project to begin in September 2018. Private-sector technology partners aided the university in building and installing the supercomputer in early 2019.

The supercomputer is located at UT's Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) and open not only to UT students but also to the science community at large. Projects will be selected through a competitive application process, and researchers will need to show that their work merits access to a computer at the scale of Frontera to solve their problems.

Once selected for a project, researchers will work with TACC specialists who will be on site to support their work with the supercomputer. Under the award agreement with the NSF, Frontera will operate for a minimum of five years to support research projects.
NASCIO names 30 finalists for state government IT recognition awards

From these finalists, a recipient from each category will be announced during an awards dinner at the upcoming NASCIO Annual Conference on October 13-16 in Nashville.
Nueces County mulling $40M bond election for roads, courthouse work
Nueces County Courthouse
Nueces County commissioners are weighing a list of capital improvement projects for a possible $40 million bond election.

The county previously was reviewing a list of 30 capital improvement projects estimated to cost $151 million, but officials whittled costs to $100 million.

County Judge Barbara Canales identified repairing county courthouse elevators, replacing HVAC systems, and improving facilities to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Road improvements totaling $38 million, including the construction of a new county road from County Road 36 to the Nueces County Airport, are under consideration.
Commissioners are reviewing other projects including coastal park improvements for $16.5 million, fairgrounds enhancements for $7.5 million, ballfield upgrades for $5 million, and construction of a new community center for $5.6 million.

Almost $10 million worth of improvements to the county jail and a $2.6 million law enforcement center in Port Aransas could be included in a potential bond package.
Commissioners are scheduled to consider the bond projects and associated debt at their September 11 meeting with possible action at their September 25 meeting.
State arts commission designates cultural districts in 3 Texas cities
Downtown Longview
Beaumont, Denton, and Longview arts officials are celebrating the Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) designation of cultural districts in their cities.

Cultural districts are special zones that capitalize on cultural resources to support economic development and community revitalization. These districts can be focal points for generating business, attracting tourists, stimulating cultural development, and fostering civic pride.

The TCA is the only organization able to officially designate cultural districts on behalf of the state. Cultural districts are marketable tourism assets that highlight the distinct identity of a community and encourage in-state, out-of-state, and international visitors.

Official designation allows cultural districts and qualifying resident arts organizations to be eligible to apply for Cultural District Project Grants of up to $2.5 million annually through TCA.

By Mary Scott Nabers, CEO of Strategic Partnerships, Inc.

Significant changes are taking place in local communities at the various jurisdictional levels of government. And, a majority of the changes are related to revenue generation efforts by public officials. That's because public funding, although stretched to the limit in most regions, no longer covers many critical government requirements.

The emerging changes are significant, and they should be noted. If nothing changes, the way governmental entities are funded in the future will have a different twist.

Because public budgets in many localities no longer cover critical funding needs, new revenue sources must be found. Some government leaders are embracing alternative funding - which means they will accept private -sector investment in large public projects and initiatives. Many others are repurposing public assets innovatively in order to generate revenue. A few governmental entities are using real estate development to develop new funding sources.

State legislators also are dealing with inadequate funding. Federal funding that once flowed to the states is much less today. Funding that states historically sent to cities and counties also has been curtailed. Public officials at the local levels of government are the ones being forced to be more innovative.

Changes in technology, security, education, and workforce development, as well as the requirements of global competitiveness, simply require more funding today. Aging infrastructure conditions are straining limited resources, and climate related disasters have created even greater needs in many regions of the country. In many cases, public health and safety are at risk.

Citizens do not want higher taxes or more fees. Voters loudly proclaim that elected officials must not raise costs for them. But, the same citizens want to know that cyber security is not a threat to government data, that their drinking water is safe, and that funding for school safety is increased. They also want roadways and bridges to be maintained, expanded, repaired, and made safe, but without toll roads or any other revenue -generating expenses.
