Annexation and public hearings were the main agenda items at the regular Melissa City Council meeting on Tuesday.

A proclamation was issued declaring July Smart Irrigation Month in the City of Melissa. Since both Mayor Reed Greer and Mayor Pro Tem Sharon Weideman were absent, council member Nicco Warren read the proclamation and conducted the council meeting.

Following public hearings at previous council meetings, those present voted to annex 13 properties totaling 39.7 acres. The properties are located along SH 121 and a few in the U.S. 75 area.

A public hearing was held on a request for a specific use permit (SUP) for a water pump station, waste storage tank and water treatment plant to be located on 1.1 acres east of the intersection of Trail Ridge Drive and Surrey Circle.

Following the public hearing the SUP was approved.

A public hearing was also held on a request for a Planned Development (PD) specific use permit (SUP) for a motorcycle sales and service facility to be located at 1111 Sam Rayburn Highway, southwest of the intersection of Davis and Fannin Roads.

Following the public hearing the SUP was approved.

Then a public hearing was held for the motorcycle sales and service facility requesting a variance allowing issuance of a permit to construct a sign. Again, following the public hearing the variance was approved.
