League City City Council on Feb. 28 will vote on the final reading of a contentious ordinance that would create a committee to review controversial Helen Hall Library books, and some residents plan to protest.

Previously, the council narrowly approved the first reading of an amended version of the ordinance proposed at the Feb. 14 meeting, Community Impact previously reported.

Dozens of community members turned out at past council meetings to speak out against the proposed community standards review committee. In response to the ordinance, some local citizens have come together to create the Galveston County Library Alliance, according to a release from the group.

The new alliance aims to hold a protest at 5 p.m. with a banned book “read-in” before the City Council meeting begins. Alliance members plan to speak during the public comment section of the meeting, according to the release.

The council meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at 200 W. Walker St., League City.

Other items on the agenda

Many different ordinances and resolutions ranging from mosquito control to potential litigation are also on the agenda for the Feb. 28 meeting.

Council will hold a public hearing on rezoning about 18.5 acres of land along the south and east sides of Twin Oaks Boulevard from general commercial to residential to allow for the development of 30 townhomes.

Plus, the city will also discuss a resolution to authorize a water facilities financing agreement of $8.4 million with the Gulf Coast Water Authority for the 7.9 million-gallons-per-day capacity expansion of the Thomas Mackey Water Treatment Plant.
