Pearland City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Tuesday, June 10, 2008

Pearland City Council on Monday voted to approve an amendment to an ordinance regarding homestead exemptions. The amendment adds a general residential homestead exemption for property owners.

An item regarding a conditional use permit application to allow a construction contractor with a storage yard, machinery sales and other items in a General Commercial District zone located east of Highway 35 and south of Halik Road, was pulled by the applicant.

The city council tabled action on a resolution authorizing a utility relocation contract for the Dixie Farm Road Project.

The city council voted to approve a conditional use permit application for Airgas Specialty Gases, Inc. The permit allows for "petroleum product extraction, refining, manufacture and storage facility" in a Heavy Industrial District zone at the business's location west of Highway 35 and south of Industrial Drive.

The city council took no action regarding items discussed in executive session, including potential litigation associated with platting issues, potential litigation associated with Othon, Inc. and the Magnolia Road Expansion Project, reappointment of municipal court judges and the city manager's annual goals.

All other items were approved. All members were present.
