PHI Air Medical services, city facility expansion and upgrades, a code of ethics policy for City Council members, board/commission members, and City Staff, mural guidelines, zoning changes and a zoning text amendment were discussed in Tuesday night’s City Council meeting.
PHI Cares: PHI Air Medical, a nationwide air ambulance provider, presented the PHI Cares membership program to Council. PHI Cares covers the uninsured or uncovered portion of flight charges incurred by residents of member governmental entities requiring medically necessary emergency air medical transport by a PHI aircraft. If Lockhart enters into a county-wide agreement with Caldwell County for the PHI Cares program, Lockhart residents would receive coverage on the unpaid portion of PHI Air Medical services, unlimited transports, no pre-existing conditions limit, on scene calls and inter-facility transfers, no co-pays, or out-of-pocket expenses.
With the closest PHI Air Medical air base located in Cedar Creek, should Caldwell County residents require air transport while in town or travelling in any adjacent county—which include Gonzales, Guadalupe, Hays, Travis, Bastrop, and Fayette Counties—they would be covered by PHI Cares membership benefits. City Staff was authorized to work with the Caldwell County Judge and other cities to consider membership.
City Office Lease: Councilmembers authorized the City Manager to execute a lease agreement for additional office space at 105 S. Colorado St. With this addition, the City can begin renovating and modernizing the 1963 City Hall in order to improve customer and employee spaces, functionality and accessibility.
Mural Guidelines: Council directed Staff to work with the Lockhart Historical Preservation Commission to prepare mural guidelines, particularly for the downtown historic district.
Code of Ethics: After a brief discussion, Council decided to postpone consideration of the proposed Code of Ethics and Anti-Discrimination Policy to allow time for additional Council review. The proposed policy applies to the City Council, Board and Commissions Members, and City employees. The Code of Ethics and Anti-Discrimination Policy will be taken up in a future Council meeting.
Zoning Text Amendment: Council approved a Zoning Text Amendment that modifies covered parking requirements for detached single-family dwellings; extend covered parking standards to include duplexes, two-unit condominiums, and two-unit townhouses; and adds an exemption for dwellings constructed on nonconforming lots less than 50 feet wide that were platted before April 15, 1990.
