Five things to watch at Monday’s city council meeting

By Colin Killian, Communications Manager

The College Station City Council gathers Monday at city hall at 3 p.m. for its regular meeting. No workshop meeting is scheduled. Here are five items to watch:

  1. Updated Water Tap Fees: The council will consider the final phase of updated water tap fees, which reimburse the city for the materials and labor required to set water meters and boxes for new service taps. Prior to last year, the fees hadn’t been updated in more than a decade.
  2. Pedestrian Intersection Improvements: The council will consider a $152,000 contract to provide improvements for pedestrians and bicyclists at four intersections — George Bush Drive at Dexter Drive, Bush at Timber Street, Holleman Drive at Eleanor Street, and Holleman at Welsh Avenue.
  3. Northpoint Crossing Rezoning: After a public hearing, the council will consider modifying the Planned Development District at the northwest corner of the University Drive-Texas Avenue intersection. The change will permit the Northpoint Crossing development to allow residential uses in part of the mixed use area on the first floor.
  4. Conditional Use Permit for Eskimo Hut: After a public hearing, the council will consider a conditional use permit for a bar called the Eskimo Hut in the Woodstone Shopping Plaza on Harvey Road.
  5. FY16 Budget/Tax Rate Adoption: The council will discuss and adopt the $304 million FY16 city budget and no change in the property tax rate of 45.25 cents per $100 of valuation.

The meetings can be watched live on Suddenlink Ch. 19, or online. The website includes an archive of previous council meetings. We’ll post a detailed live blog on this site.
