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:
- Reclaimed Water Agreement with Apache: The council will consider a two-year agreement to sell reclaimed wastewater to Apache Corporation for well drilling and fracking. The agreement could result in about $5 million in water fund revenue. The council will hear a workshop presentation, then vote on the item as part of the consent agenda.
- Ringer Library Project: The council will be updated on plans for the expansion of Ringer Library that was approved by voters in the 2008 bond election. The $8.4 million project could be completed by the fall of 2016.
- College Station Cougars Day: The mayor will recognize the College Station High School baseball team for winning the Class 3A state championship last week in Austin.
- Rental Registration Revisions: After a public hearing, the council will consider revising the city’s rental registration ordinance to include administrative penalties, requiring a notarized affidavit, and authorizing the administrator to review a copy of the lease.
- 2015 Bond Election Timeline: The council will discuss a tentative timeline for a 2015 bond election and the creation of a citizen advisory committee.
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.
