This Week in Council

April 26, 2002, News

A slow week, leading up to E-Day and G-Day: the election on May 4, and City Manager Jesus Garza's last day in City Hall April 30, after which he'll shuffle off to the Lower Colorado River Authority. Items of interest include:

Changing the fees for off-site parking at Austin-Bergstrom;

Accepting a U.S. Dept. of Energy grant to support the city's telecommuting project;

Issuing a request for proposals for removing the fuel tanks at the Holly Power Plant;

Creating a city employee mentoring program for kids in low-performing Austin ISD schools;

And held over from last week -- funding for Prop. 1 should it pass, another public hearing on the parking-on-the-grass ordinance, and the Sammy's House day-care center.
