By Colin Killian, Communications Manager
The College Station City Council gathers Thursday at city hall for its first workshop (5:30 p.m.) and regular (7 p.m.) meeting of 2015. Here are five items to watch:
Aquatics Assessment: The council will hear a workshop presentation on the city’s aquatics programs, including facility conditions, operations and maintenance, cost recovery and management options.
Kyle Field Game Day Plan: As part of the consent agenda, the council will consider an inter-local agreement with the Texas A&M University System to help fund Task 5 of the Kyle Field Game Day Plan to evaluate and improve game day operations. The city’s portion of the $100,000 project cost is $18,000.
Budget Amendment: After a public hearing, the council will consider a $4.63 million FY15 budget amendment (most being funds allocated for FY14 purchases that were not completed due to timing issues) and a contingency transfer of $154,450. For a complete list of amendment items, see pages 33-34 in the regular meeting packet.
Council Appointments: The council will appoint fellow council members to various boards and commissions.
Commission Appointments: The council will consider citizen appointments to the B/CS Library Committee, Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Greenways Advisory Board, Construction Board of Adjustments, Convention and Visitors Bureau, Design Review Board, Historic Preservation Committee, Joint Relief Funding Review Committee, Landmark Commission, Parks and Recreation Board, Planning and Zoning Commission, and the Zoning Board of Adjustments.
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.
