Not listed on the City Council agenda, but still supposedly due to council tomorrow, is an estimate from CDM Engineering on the cost of a five or 10-year construction shutdown at Water Treatment Plant No. 4.

Congressman's TV spot targets governor in the presidential race
 
Paul Versus Perry

With payday lending regulation and a Water Treatment Plant No. 4 item at City Council’s meeting Thursday, it’s shaping up to be a busy week. And it’s getting busier: This morning, Mayor Lee Leffingwell trumpeted the city’s latest open space acquisition.
