City Council Recap: December 21, 2021

A zoning change request, and impact fees were discussed in last night’s City Council Meeting.


Impact Fees: City Council accepted the Impact Fee Advisory Committee’s report, along with the Committee’s recommendation to update land use assumptions, capital improvement plans (CIPs, which include work in water, sewer, and roads), and impact fees. That means, the City will be hiring engineering consultants to complete the Impact Fee Report to be adopted by City Council in 2022. Texas State law requires cities to work with qualified consultants to assist in these updates every five years. The last time land use assumptions, CIPs and impact fees were updated was in 2017. Impact Fees are based on the estimated cost of the projects in each CIP, which is subject to inflation, and current costs are now out-of-date.


Central Texas Refuse: Central Texas Refuse (CTR), the City’s solid waste collection/recycling contractor, withdrew its petition for a fuel surcharge on December 20th. Consequently, no action was required on this item.


Zoning Change: City Council approved Keith Schauer P.E.’s request—made on behalf of Jesco Construction Inc.—for a zoning change on the 9.1-acre property on 920 Trinity St. from Residential Medium Density District to Planned Development District. The project consists of 68 single-family detached condominium dwelling units.


City Manager’s Annual Evaluation: City Council conducted its annual performance evaluation of the City Manager and authorized a cost-of-living salary adjustment and a vacation leave carryover amendment.
