previously received from state $3.2 MILLION SOURCE: CITY OF FRISCO ! COMMUNITY IMPACT NEWSPAPER $3 MILLION expected from House Bill 2708 Frisco is receiving state funds to help with cleanup e ! orts at the Exide site. $29 MILLION estimated cleanup cost EXIDE FUNDING

CITY Frisco to see another $3Mfrom state to support Exide cleanup

BY MATT PAYNE

Frisco Director of Communications Dana Baird said the city previously received two payments from the state fund. The # rst payment of $1.5 million was authorized in 2013. The second payment of $1.7 million was authorized in 2015. The plant began operating in Frisco in the 1960s. In 2012, the city agreed to purchase 180 undeveloped acres around the plant. In return, Exide was expected to remove industrial facilities and begin cleanup. But a pair of bank- ruptcy # lings stymied the company’s cleanup e ! orts. On Oct. 6, Frisco City Council members approved a plan to take over remediation and ownership of the site. Once cleanup is # nished, the former Exide property will connect the Frisco Discovery Center and new library-to-be with the roughly 600-acre Grand Park project. Work on the park is on hold until the Exide cleanup is completed.

At least $3 million from the state will aid Frisco’s $29 million cleanup e ! orts at the former Exide Technologies battery recycling plant. House Bill 2708, introduced by state Rep. Jared Patterson, R " Frisco, will allow the city to use money from state-levied fees on batteries for the cleanup. The bill passed by a majority in both state chambers this session and was signed by Gov. Greg Abbott. Frisco previously had access to this account, Patterson said, but only for one year at a time. With the new bill, Frisco has access to the account for six years. To use these funds, the Frisco Community Development Corpora- tionmust obtain a permit from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The FCDC is also required to pay for some of the environmental remediation.

Exide Technologies’ battery recycling plant operations were located right next to Stewart Creek. All of the buildings at the site have since been taken down, but contamination of the site remains. (Matt Payne/Community Impact Newspaper)

Angelia Pelham Frisco City Council Member Place 3

Council Member Angelia Pelhamwas sworn in June 15 as the newest member on Frisco City Council. Pelham ! lled the Place 3 spot held byWill Sowell, who reached his term limit after nine years on City Council. The newest council member advanced to a runo " election on June 5, defeating opponent Jennifer White. Pelham spoke of several hurdles she, her family and campaign teamhad to overcome while running for Frisco City Council. She underscored the importance of moving past the campaign and beginning to govern.

Comprehensive back and spine care. From minor aches and pains to complex spine issues, the experienced back and spine specialists on the medical staff at Texas Health Hospital Frisco can help put a stop to back pain. In collaboration with UT Southwestern Medical Center at Frisco, our comprehensive range of care includes physical therapy, medicine, painmanagement and advanced surgical procedures. And, as always, we have protocols in place designed around your safety.

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR ! WARD TO WHILE SERVING ON FRISCO CITY COUNCIL? I’m most looking forward to getting out into the city and meeting the residents who choose to call Frisco home. I will be very intentional about meeting with residents and starting dialogue on how we can live better together and create a stronger sense of mutual understanding and respect. WHAT DO YOU THINK ARE THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES FACING THE CITY OVER THE NEXT YEAR OR TWO? Not unlike most cities, Frisco still has some economic recovery needed to return to pre-COVID state in the area of tourism. The tourist economy impacts all aspects of the city, from hotel occupancy tax, sales tax, to small-business sustain- ability. We will need to strategically balance our focus on economic growth while maintaining quality of life.

WHATWOULDYOULIKETO SEEFROMTHERESIDENTSYOU REPRESENT? One of the most impactful things I’ve experienced while campaigning over the last eight months was the love and support of the residents in this city. I had people who did not know me personally send # owers, deliver meals, send encouragement and prayers, not tomention deliver signs, block walk and serve as poll greeters. I’d love to see our residents continue to support one another, get involved and volunteer, andmost importantly stay engaged in our political process. WHAT ISYOURVISIONFORTHE FUTUREOFFRISCO? I see Frisco as the gold-standard benchmark and role model for other cities, leading in innovation, economic growth, public-private partnerships [and] compelling entertainment ven- ues, surrounded by a world-class cul- ture of diversity and unity that attracts residential and corporate citizens from every corner of the world.
