ill hold their regular monthly meeting on Monday, May 12, beginning at 5:30 p.m. in Town Hall to consider several items of business, as well as hear from a group of local residents upset with drainage problems.
Councilors will begin by hearing citizen comments on subjects not included in next week’s agenda, but city leaders are expected to receive some feedback from disgruntled residents in the Stadium Addition.
Residents there have requested the council and city find a solution to flooding problems that have arisen following the widening of US Hwy. 67. At Monday’s meeting, it is expected that representatives from the Texas Department of Transportation will be in attendance to address the residents’ concerns and receive their comments to fix the drainage issue.
The council, after hearing from citizens and TxDOT officials, will explore legal options that are available to the city to correct the flooding issues.
City leaders will also hear and possibly approve a resolution to endorse the combined operating and licensing application for Luminant’s proposed Units 3 and 4 facilities at the Comanche Peak Steam Electric Station.
In other business, the council will consider and possibly OK an increase in Atmos Energy’s franchise fee, from 3 percent to 5 percent, as well as discuss and possibly approve an increase in mileage reimbursement for city employees to 50.5 cents per mile, to conform with state guidelines.
Billy Huckaby, director of the Glen Rose Convention & Visitors’ Bureau, is also set to provide an update on recent and upcoming activities in a report.
