1. The council had the first reading of the 5 annexation ordinances
Monday night was the first reading of five annexation ordinances, which discuss the possible annexation of Areas A, C, I, L and P. If passed, the council will annex, or absorb, these five areas into the city. The council approved the ordinances for Areas A, C, I and L, with amendments. The council will have the second reading of the ordinances at the Nov. 27 meeting.
2. The council amended Ordinance No. 1551
The amendment was made by Council Member Trent Perez and removed nine residential areas from the annexation agreement. The amendment passed 4-3, with council members Moore, Reed and Ordeneaux voting against. The area now primarily encompasses the Pearland Regional Airport and land around it.
