Victoria Building Mugs

The Victoria City Council meets at the Municipal Court building, 107 W. Juan Linn.

Rawley McCoy, Andrew Young and Mark Loffgren will be sworn into office Tuesday at the Victoria City Council’s regular meeting.

City officials will canvass the election results from Saturday’s elections at Tuesday’s meeting.

McCoy was elected as Victoria’s next mayor with 51.45% of the vote Saturday, avoiding a runoff. Young was elected to his third term in office representing Super District 5, and Loffgren was elected to represent Super District 6. He will replace Councilman Tom Halepaska, whose term will end Tuesday.

The council will also elect a mayor pro tempore, who acts as the presiding officer of the council in the mayor’s absence. Halepaska was previously the mayor pro tempore.

Also Tuesday, the council will decide whether to award a bid for Crestwood Drive’s reconstruction to Brannan Paving Company. The company submitted a bid for about $4.1 million to redo the street between Laurent and Ben Jordan streets. The construction company’s bid estimates it will take more than 18 months to complete the project, which includes water and sewer lines, storm sewer improvements and sidewalks in addition to a half mile of new concrete road.
