Council Watch

This Week in Council: The council's morning session (9am Thursday, Sept. 30) will include briefings and discussion on the LCRA water supply deal with the city, and the extension of sewer service to Westlake Village. Slated for a zoning vote is the controversial Champion Tract, at Loop 360 and RM 2222, although this item may be postponed. The council will also consider a $1.6 million contract to construct the East Austin Youth Center in the vicinity of the Holly Street power plant. The funds would come from the Holly Good Neighbor program, designed to provide mitigation for residents adversely affected by their proximity to the plant.
