Navasota city council is looking at helping a few property owners with their zoning woes. The City’s Sarah Corpita told Council last week, one land owner approached the city wanting his property’s zoning changed, because half of his land currently zoned for houses but because of the proximity to the highway half is zoned for businesses.
Council did approve the change at first reading, but not before it delved into the land’s possible uses. Councilman Geoff Horn stated, convenience stores should require extra screening before approval due ongoing problems in town.
Council also passed the first reading of the city’s 2015-16 budget. During the presentation, City Manager Brad Stafford told Council there will be more expenses for residents next year mainly in utilities in an effort to pay for the city’s infrastructure repairs.
And if you’d like to let Council know whether you agree with the budget or don’t, you’ll have a chance to do so at the next council meeting at 6 Monday evening, September 28th, in city council chambers.
And of course, Navasota News will be there whether you are or not.
