“This has been an unprecedented year of change and challenge for the City, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic being at the forefront of every decision for our citizens, businesses, stakeholders and employees,” said Odis Jones, CEO/City Manager. “However, Missouri City is resilient and moving forward into the New Year with a vision to maintain public safety, expand growth and development, manage the budget and continue implementing regulations that earned us a Platinum Scenic City designation.”
City Manager Jones also said “we’re excited about the new Amazon Fulfillment Center coming online next Fall at 2303 Hurricane Lane. Amazon was not given any tax incentives or abatements for coming to Missouri City, however, the City did provide inducements through streamlining the permitting process.” The new economic development facility will be 1 million square feet and the E-commerce retailer will employ 500 to 1,500 workers with quality pay and benefits packages that are competitive in the industry.
The City also elected its 12th Mayor, Robin J. Elackatt, who was sworn into office on Monday, Dec. 21. In addition, voters elected two other members to City Council this year: At-Large Position #1 Councilmember Vashaundra Edwards and At-Large Position #2 Councilmember Lynn Clouser.
