Redistricting, Impact Fees, tax notes, and a zoning change request were discussed in Tuesday night’s City Council meeting.
Redistricting: Council adopted the City’s revised redistricting plan, which was prepared after additional discussions with the community and the City’s special counsel on redistricting, Bickerstaff, Heath, Delgado and Acosta, LLP. The plan, called Plan B Revised, expands District 1 north to FM-612/Flores St., District 3 east to Main St. and Hackberry St., and District 2 south to W. San Antonio St./SH-142 and Stueve Ln. The newly approved voting districts will be in place for the November 8, 2022 Municipal Election.
For a closer look at the newly established municipal voting districts, head to the City’s dedicated Redistricting webpage.
Tax Note: Council authorized City Staff and the City’s Financial Advisor to seek competitive bids from financial institutions for a short-term tax note to finance approximately $4 million of needed equipment and capital projects.
The proceeds would be used for the purchase of a Fire Department ladder truck and the replacement of the Electric Department’s high ranger aerial bucket truck. Other projects include: civil engineering and design for future road improvements to Clearfork St. and City Line Rd., sidewalk construction and rehabilitation, and a sewer line extension along FM 1322. Competitive bids will be presented and evaluated by the City’s Financial Advisor at the June 7th Council meeting.
Impact Fees: Council accepted the Semi-Annual Impact Fee Report for the six-month period from October 1, 2021 to April 1, 2022.
Zoning Change: Councilmembers approved for Nanda Mutala’s request, made on behalf of Suburban Propane, for a zoning change from Agricultural-Open to Commercial Heavy Business for a 3.5-acre site located at 2001 Blackjack St./FM-20.
