Notebook: Upcoming city council business

Monday, November 3, 2008 at City Hall, 630 E. Hopkins | Schedule: 3:00 p.m. Regular Meeting; 5:30 p.m. Proclamations and Honors.

Meeting rescheduled

The city council will meet at 3 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 3 instead of its usual first Tuesday schedule because of the General Election on Tuesday, November 4. Public hearings will be held at 4 p.m.

Single-stream recycling

The city council will consider a $1.77 increase in the recycling fee to provide single stream recycling for residential trash customers. A related item on the agenda is a proposed amendment to the Texas Disposal Systems contract to  provide single stream recycling and expand the products that can be recycled. TDS would provide residential customers with 96 gallon recycling carts and collect recyclables every other week on the same day as trash collection.

Public hearings at 4 p.m.

The city council will schedule public hearings on the agenda to begin at 4 p.m. Items on the agenda for a public hearing include:

Municipal court juvenile case manager fee

The city council will consider an ordinance on first reading to establish a Juvenile Case Manager fee of $5 that can be used in the future to pay a Juvenile Case Manager. Due to the increasing numbers of juvenile cases, the 79th Texas Legislature passed a law allowing cities to establish such a fee. Defendants convicted of misdemeanors in Municipal Court would be charged the fee.

Proclamations and honors

Mayor Susan Narvaiz will present proclamations and special honors to the San Marcos High School Tennis Team, three San Marcos High School scholars, and proclamations recognizing Veterans Day, Nurse Practitioners, Hospice, Municipal Court, Animal Shelter, and the Texas State University Recreation Program Partnerships.
