5 things to watch at Monday’s city council meetings
By Colin Killian, Public Communications Manager
The College Station City Council gathers Monday at city hall for its workshop (about 5:30 p.m.) and regular (7 p.m.) meetings. Here are five items to watch:
- Convention and Visitors Bureau Audit: In the workshop, the council will discuss the city internal auditor’s report on the Bryan-College Station Convention and Visitors Bureau. Most of the city’s Hotel Occupancy Tax revenues go to the CVB.
- Police Station Design: The council will receive an update on the design status of a new police facility at the southeast corner of the Dartmouth Street-Krenek Tap Road intersection.
- New Traffic Signal at Fitch-Victoria: As part of the consent agenda, the council will consider a contract for new traffic and pedestrian crossing signals at the Fitch Parkway-Victoria Avenue intersection.
- Munson Avenue Rehabilitation: The council will consider a $2.45 million contract for the rehabilitation of Munson Avenue from Dominik Drive to Lincoln Avenue. The project will include new concrete pavement and other improvements.
- MUD Strategic Partnership: After a public hearing in the regular meeting, the council will consider a strategic partnership agreement with Brazos County Municipal Utility District (MUD) No. 1 that outlines the terms and conditions for annexing the area. The city council created the district in 2014 for the Texas World Speedway property.
The meetings can be watched live on Suddenlink Ch. 19, or online. The website includes an arcConhive of previous council meetings. We’ll post a detailed live blog on this site.
