Alaniz had been reappointed by the City Council at its final meeting in May. Two new members also were appointed to the board. They were businessman Darryl Martin and retired cable television company manager John Salinas. The two replaced Jessy T. Garza and Bill Shroyer on the board.
Board members then elected local Ford dealership owner Dave Moore as the board’s vice president, and Leticia Muñoz was re-elected secretary.
Board members immediately approved date changes in a performance agreement between the BEIC and the Bee Development Authority.
The BEIC is providing $1,155,000 to the BDA over a five-year period for the construction of a 38,000 square-foot warehouse to be build at the Chase Field Industrial and Airport Complex.
The warehouse will be leased by Kay and Associates and Sikorsky Aerospace Maintenance.
Board members also agreed to establish a bond reserve fund with the International Bank of Commerce, which is legally required for an expected bond sale.
In other business, the board voted to:
— Recommend that the City Council approve facade grants of $6,000 each to the Masonic Lodge and Treviño Funeral Home for improvements made.
— Send requests for facade improvement grants from O’Daddy’s Bar and Grill, 901 W. Corpus Christi St., and the Lazy R. Saddle Shop, 327 N. Washington St., to subcommittee for review.
— Forward a request from O’Daddy’s Bar and Grill to the infrastructure subcommittee. That business is asking for a $40,000-$50,000 infrastructure grant to help pay for the purchase of kitchen equipment.
