County Board briefs: Intersection repair contract awarded; Parks and Rec month declared

County approves intersection repair contract

County Board approved a $175,683.80 contract with HR Green, which previously did the design services for Olinda Boulevard North and Osgood Avenue North in Baytown, that includes redesign engineering services that were not included in the original 2015 contract. Public Works Director Don Theisen explained this will improve the safety of the intersection, which needed a redesign after a nearby large housing development proposal.

In other news:
