Five things to watch at Thursday’s city council meetings
The College Station City Council gathers Thursday at city hall for its workshop (6 p.m.) and regular (7 p.m.) meetings. Here are five items to watch:
- Mayor Pro Tem: The council will select one of its members for a one-year term as mayor pro tempore to act as mayor during the mayor’s disability or absence.
- Rental Registration Program: The council will discuss possible changes to the rental registration ordinance, including survey efforts and a fine for violations.
- Sale of City-Owned Property: The council will consider selling about 9 acres at 210 Technology Way for almost $1.1 million to StataCorp, and will also consider extending the closing date to Jan. 17 for the sale of the First Street Property to Asset Plus Corporation.
- Munson Avenue Parking Removal: After a public hearing, the council will consider removing on-street parking along both sides of Munson Avenue from Lincoln Avenue to Rose Circle to relieve traffic congestion.
- Chimney Hill Shopping Center: The council will consider sale and economic development agreements with the Research Valley Partnership and PM Realty Group for the Chimney Hill Shopping Center. PM Realty would purchase the property for $7.5 million and would have a 150-day inspection period prior to closing.
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.
