Municipalities throughout the Katy area will be holding meetings this week. Agendas include establishing emergency planning teams, reviewing strategic plans and road improvements. Katy residents are welcome to attend these meetings and can review the agendas in full at the links in each respective section below.
1. The Katy City Council will meet Monday to discuss emergency-planning teams.
The Katy City Council will consider a resolution which would appoint community members to the Local Mitigation Planning Team. The team would be responsible for developing and maintaining emergency plans and strategies for the city to use in the event of an emergency. The council will also decide on whether the mayor may enter into cooperative effort with Harris County on the county’s Multi-Hazard Mitigation Action Plan.
Council members will also decide whether to cancel meetings scheduled for Nov. 12 and Dec. 24 because of holiday conflicts.
The meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. Monday at Katy City Hall, 901 Ave. C, Katy.
2. The Katy ISD board of trustees will review their five-year strategic design plan at a special session Monday evening.
The Katy ISD trustees will meet to review the district’s strategic design plan, focusing on goals for the 2018-19 school year. The plan is designed to ensure all district staff are working toward the same goals for student and district performance. Details on Year 2 of the plan are not immediately available; however, Year 1 focused on ROTC recruitment, dual credit participation and transportation.
The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. Monday at the Merrell Center, 6301 S. Stadium Lane, Katy.
3. The Fort Bend County Commissioners Court will meet Tuesday to discuss the approval of payment for work on Gaston Road improvements.
The payment, if approved, will be just over $245,000 for widening the road and making other improvements near the Spring Green Boulevard roundabout project, which finished last month. Each of the roads going into the roundabout were improved to flow properly into the roundabout and ease traffic in the area, county officials have said. The project is funded by 2013 mobility bonds, per the court’s agenda.
The Fort Bend County commissioners will meet at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Fort Bend County Courthouse, 401 Jackson St., Richmond.
4. The Harris County Commissioners Court will discuss expenditures for a variety of traffic improvements.
The Harris County commissioners will consider funding for a traffic light at the intersection of Morton Ranch and Elrod roads near the Grand Parkway. They will also consider awarding a contract to Specialty Construction Texas for completion of improvements at the intersection of Barker Cypress and Morton roads.
The meeting will take place at 10 a.m. Tuesday at 1001 Preston St., Ste. 934, Houston.
