Among the agenda items of the September 11th City Council Meeting, was the consideration and possible action to appoint Pattie Pederson to the Arts Council of the Brazos Valley.
City Manager Jason Weeks said that since the City’s addition of a Grant Coordinator on staff, they reached out to the Arts Council earlier in the year wanting to bring the grants portion provided by the Hotel/Motel Funding back “in house.”
Weeks also explained that the Navasota Artist In Residence Program has had some setbacks.
He went on to explain why having someone on the board to be an advocate voice for the program is important to getting the program back on it’s feet.
Council unanimously voted to appoint council member Pederson to the Arts Council Board.
