Council Agenda Discussion

The council will vote on items listed on the consent agenda during tonight’s regular meeting. These items were pulled for workshop discussion:

  • Game Day Traffic Study: This project is a follow-up to the 2013 game day traffic study and will include traffic management and implementation plans. The Texas A&M University System has contracted with Texas A&M Transportation Institute for $200,000 to complete the project. The remaining partners will contract individually with the system to fund their respective costs — $35,000 each from Texas A&M Transportation, Texas A&M University System, City of Bryan, 12th Man Foundation, and City of College Station, and $25,000 from the CVB.
  • Wastewater Capacity Study: Water Services routinely monitors the flow levels in the wastewater collection system, and excessive flows during rain events have been detected in the Northgate and Southwood Valley sewer shed areas. The sources of this inflow must be identified and corrected to regain the capacity in the sewer mains and lift stations. This study will identify potential pipe failures, hydraulic capacity issues, and possible illegal connections. In addition, rehabilitation projects will be identified and prioritized. The study will be paid for with wastewater operating funds.
