League City City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Wednesday, October 11, 2017

League City City Council on Tuesday voted 4-3, with Dan Becker, Keith Gross and Nick Long opposed, to not authorize the Galveston Central and Harris County appraisal districts to conduct reappraisals of properties in League City damaged by Hurricane Harvey to determine their market values immediately after the storm.

The motion included direction for the collection of storm debris to continue at no cost to citizens, and to also continue to waive permit fees related to the repair of damages caused by the storm.

The city council voted unanimously to nominate Mike Sullivan for election to the Harris County Appraisal District Board of Directors. The item had been approved at the previous city council meeting, but a motion and second had not been made. Therefore, the item was brought back to council for consideration.

The city council voted unanimously to rezone approximately 1.19 acres of property in the area of 260 and 262 Dale Ridge Lane, 3015 and 3013 Terrace Cliff Lane and 265, 263 and 261 Rolling Creek Lane from an Open Space District to a Residential-Single Family District with a minimum lot size of 5,000 square feet.

The city council voted 6-1, with Nick Long opposed, to approve the item on first and final reading.

The city council voted unanimously to rezone four tracts of land totaling approximately 13 acres from various districts to a General Commercial District.

The city council voted 6-1, with Todd Kinsey opposed, to approve the item on first and final reading.

The city council voted 6-1, with Becker opposed, to approve a resolution amending the city's Rules of Procedure.

The item was approved with an amendment with an additional strike of tabled items subject to recall. The overall amendment was to move the public speaker portion of the meeting to before any action items on the agenda. Striking tabled items prevents the council from taking action on those items prior to public comments.

The city council voted unanimously to approve the dates of November 14, November 28 and December 12 for city council meetings during those months.

The city council voted 6-1, with Becker opposed, to approve an interlocal agreement with the City of Friendswood to allow the joint use of specialized equipment for water and sewer rehabilitation efforts related to Hurricane Harvey.

The city council voted unanimously to authorize the city manager and the city attorney to add $13,700 to the Standard Pacific Homes Legal Fund in order to pay for the special master, as discussed in closed session.

All other items were approved by unanimous vote. Mayor Pat Hallisey was absent. Kinsey presided over the meeting. Agenda  Supplemental
