Five things to watch at Monday’s city council meetings

gavel[1]The College Station City Council gathers Monday at city hall for its workshop (6 p.m.) and regular (7 p.m.) meetings. Here are five items to watch:  

  1. Mayor Pro Tem: The council will select one of its members as mayor pro tempore to act as mayor during the mayor’s disability or absence. Selection of a mayor pro tem occurs annually.
  2. Strategic Use of Hotel Tax Revenue: The council will hear a workshop presentation on strategic uses of the city’s hotel tax funds. College Station expects to collect about $4.5 million in hotel taxes in FY14.
  3. Park Naming: The council will consider a request to formally name two parks in the Castlegate subdivision as Phillips Park and Wallace Lake Park. A park in The Barracks subdivision will remain Barracks Park.
  4. Water Conservation: The council will receive an update on the city’s proactive water conservation program.
  5. Rezoning for Pappas, Inc.: The council will consider rezoning about 4.4 acres at the corner of University Drive and Glenhaven Drive to allow for the development of a restaurant by Pappas Restaurants.

The meetings can be watched live on Suddenlink Ch. 19, or online. Previous council meetings are archived on the website. A detailed live blog from the meetings will be posted on this site and also can be accessed through the city’s Facebook page.
