City council to receive quarterly FATHOM update
By LYNETTE SOWELL
The Copperas Cove city council will meet on Tuesday at 6 p.m., and on the agenda for report items is a quarterly report of utility administration services and the partnership with Fathom Global Water. City Manager Ryan Haverlah and Brad Drier with FATHOM will be making the presentation.
Also on Tuesday, a key component of the future multi/modal truck/rail facility proposed by Fort Hood is on the agenda, that of a resolution for the city council to declare support for the submission of the Fort Hood Access Ramps - State Highway 9 to Tank Destroyer Blvd. project to the Killeen-Temple Metropolitan Planning Organization. The construction of the ramps will be submitted to KTMPO for consideration for state and federal funds for the project.
The use of the Civic Center by the Copperas Cove Chamber of Commerce for hosting its Military Affairs dinners is on the agenda for Tuesday. This item was postponed at a prior city council meeting so City Manager Ryan Haverlah and Chamber President Alicia Menard could discuss the agreement prior to presenting it to the city council.
there will be two public hearings along with consideration of two ordinances by the council Tuesday. The first is an amendment to the city’s Future Land Use Plan map requested by Duran Homes, Inc., for properties of 101 and 103 E. Avenue C, to change their designation from Retail and LD (Low Density Residential) to HD (High Density Residential).
The second public hearing is for the city’s 2019 Comprehensive Plan update as presented at the 5 p.m. workshop meeting.
Two positions on the Copperas Cove Economic Development Corporation board of directors will be filled this evening. One position is currently held by Jay Jackson, who filled the remainder of an unexpired term in the spring. The second is to fill a vacancy. Jackson has filed an application for the position he currently holds. Along with Jackson, Shawn Alzona, Darren Blair, Charlotte Brown, Richard Kirkpatrick, Norman Mitchell, and Amy Williams have submitted applications for the board.
The council will also nominate candidates to serve on both the Central Appraisal District Board of Directors for both Coryell and Lampasas Counties.
During the 5 p.m. workshop preceding the meeting, the council will receive a presentation about and discuss the city’s 2019 Comprehensive Plan update as given by the city’s Development Services Department. Mayor Bradi Diaz will also be issuing a proclamation regarding the upcoming National Night Out.
Both the workshop and the meeting will take place in the city council chambers located at the city’s Technology Building, located at 508 S. 2nd St.
