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:
- 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.
