To address the council about any item on the workshop or regular agenda, register with the city secretary by 4 p.m. or call 979-764-3500 and provide your name and phone number. Written comments will be provided to the council members.
Here are five items to watch:
1. Housing Tax Credit
In the workshop, the council will consider two applications for the state’s 2023 9% Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Program, which directs private capital toward developing and preserving affordable rental housing for low-income households.
2. EV Electric Rates
The council will consider electric vehicle fast charger stations and adding a retail electric rate for EV customers. Since fast-charging stations can place significant demands on the electric system and may not use much energy, they can create a poor load factor not accounted for in existing rates.
3. BCMUD No. 1 Bond
The council will consider consenting to a $4 million bond issuance by Brazos County Municipal Utility District No. 1 for water improvements.
4. Easement Abandonment
After a public hearing, the council will consider abandoning 0.274 acres of a public utility easement in the Traditions Subdivision. The applicant plans to construct a new building as part of the Fujifilm Campus Master Plan, and the easement is no longer necessary.
5. Pavement Maintenance
The council will consider an $8.4 million contract with Brazos Paving for repairing and reconstructing asphalt streets.
