College Station Council Approves More Parks Improvement Contracts

Meeting on Monday instead of Thursday, the College Station city council approved contracts for improvements at three parks.

A $199,410 design contract at Central Park and Bee Creek Park will address inadequate restrooms, access for disabled visitors, and maintenance problems.

A $128,736 construction contract at Gabbard Park will replace fencing around a fishing pier and a walk bridge.

The council also took action in open session on one of three items discussed in executive session items involving legal advice.

Listen to Tuesday newscasts on 1620 and for council comments on a 4-2 vote adding the word “senior” to the title of College Station’s new community center. That reverses a decision in March.

The council discussed in private, but took no action, on an item titled “legal advice concerning municipal regulation of property owner restrictions on dog breeds.” A request was made during public comments at the council’s April 16th meeting to force apartment complexes to allow pit bulls, german shepherds, dobermans, and rotweilers among other aggressive breeds.

The third item was titled “legal issues concerning use of HUD funds for rehabilitation/reconstruction of property located generally near Barron Cut Off Road and W.S. Phillips Parkway”.
