Decatur City Council to look at water issues

By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, April 26, 2014

The Decatur City Council will spend some time talking about water issues when it meets Monday.

A workshop session begins at 5:30 p.m. followed by the meeting at 6. Both are open to the public and will be held at City Hall, 201 E. Walnut.

Public Works Director Earl Smith will report on the departments he oversees, including wastewater and water. He will give a rainfall report and bring the council up-to-date on water levels in Lake Bridgeport, the source of the city’s drinking water.

After a finance report from Finance Director Brad Burnett, the council will enter into its regular agenda, which includes the sixth and final annual report on the city’s sanitary sewer overflow initiative.

The council will also hold public hearings on a requested amendment to the city’s comprehensive plan, changing the land use designation for four acres on Business U.S. 81/287 from “office” and “high-density residential” to “commercial” at the request of Leanna Wagonseller.

She also requests a zoning change from multi-family residential to commercial. Both requests were approved without opposition by the Planning and Zoning Commission.

The council will also:

  • present a proclamation on the May 9 Butterfield Stage Days Karl Klement Ram PRCA Rodeo “Pink Night;”
  • consider an interlocal agreement with the Frisco Police Department;
  • consider reappointing Gary Cocanougher and Dwight Reeves to the Water District board for two-year terms expiring in April of 2016;
  • consider a nomination for the North Central Texas Council of Governments executive board; and
  • get an update from Police Chief Rex Hoskins on the city’s notification systems.
