City Council Notebook

What's poppin' this week in council-land …

Thursday, May 3, 2007

Item 15: $250,000 out of no more than $1 million for decommission and deconstruction of the Thomas C. Green Water Treatment Plant. Aloha fecal coliform!

Item 21: $11,649,000 in water-treating quicklime for the water utility. Yum!

Item 29: Lee Leffingwell's Water Conservation Task Force recommendations, in their likely 45-minute, ass-numbing glory.

Item 30: Dumping interest from the $10 million sale of Block 21 into an account funding operating costs of the new central library – to go on top of Thomas C. Green Water Treatment Plant. The circle of life continues.

Item 31: An item from Jennifer Kim and Brewster McCracken creating a three-dimensional digital model of Austin with emphasis on the myriad Town Lake Corridor projects and making it available for public use. Someone's been watching too much Tron.

Item 32: Approve a resolution requesting the Planning Commission make and forward a recommendation concerning amendments to Title 25 of the City Code concerning the dedication of parkland at its meeting on May 8, 2007, and directing the city manager to timely bring to council the recommendations of the Planning Commission, staff, and other boards and blah blah blah. Can anyone but Katherine Gregor stay awake for this?

10:30am: Morning Briefings
Item 40: Presentation on the city's five-year financial bloodbath, err, forecast.

Item 50: Return of the Lakeshore PUD (massive Riverside condo and apartment project), up on second and third.

UPDATE: As requested, a link to the agenda in full.
