BOOM AND CONEX CONTAINER

The City of Bayou Vista was given an oil boom by the General Land Office to protect both the City and Highland Bayou should there be an oil spill in West Bay.  The boom will be stored in the conex container located on the City parking lot close to the school-bus stop.  Currently, the container is in need of painting.  Therefore, the City is asking any resident interested in designing a mural for the side of the container to please submit their idea (sketch)  to City Hall by Wednesday, August 20, 2014 – 5:00 p.m.  The sketches will be presented to City Council at their Regular Meeting, Tuesday, August 26, 2014.
