MP3 format, right click on link to download and listen on your computer.  from open records request. (large file, the meeting was very long).

Ricky Villa running meeting. First up, Larry Smith on the Stoneview plats. No citizen comments. Larry Smith commercial lots on Hwy 67, approved. JP Griffin administered oath for 3 new council people. Items to go on the agenda by a certain deadline, 10 am the Thursday before the meeting. Revised tax incentives for historic district. Karen Richardson is newly elected chair of the Preservation Board. Must be improvements made on properties in order to get granted tax exemptions on an annual basis. Property owners may be annexed into the city without having to pay city taxes while their property is being developed-skipped. Update on TxDOT flood control problems-skipped. Ordinance against bow and arrow/spear fishing at Paluxy River near Big Rock, catching fish and throwin gon the bank, causing stink and buzzards. Park ends at the dam. What about the River Walk? Discussion of fishing, ordinances, state law, etc. All game fish. Motion to prohibit all fishing on the east side of the dam at Big Rock park. Ordinance to put masonry requirements on buildings. All sides. Historical ordinances are 100 percent. Rock facial structure? Commercial buildings. 25 percent masonry? At what cost? Tabled till next meeting with markedup copy. Prohibit parking on NE Barnard at certain hours. Charge for parking? Issue of where picnic tables are (and parking) versus walking all the way down to the dam. Water meter. Water park and River Walk- citizens have 60 days to put forth a petition to have these items brought to a public vote. Right now no one knows what the project is going to cost. Suppose the 60 days expires and then we find out that the cost of doing this will be 10 million dollars (exaggeration, but the fact is that the costs of these two projects are still being explored). CVC report- USA Today featured Dinosaur Park.

My own note. Seems to me that the people in the City of Glen Rose (I'm not one of them) would WANT to have this brought to a vote, that would include at least an estimate of what these 2 projects would cost. And that can happen. I'm recording this from open records in the middle of July but that's only a month after the original June meeting.

You know, I'd rather see sidewalks for our kids to get to school or Big Rocks.  It would also help if they would take a few folks from jail once a day to pick up the trash at Big Rocks. And hey, I need to fix up my old house some more, can I get a tax break.

Oh, I am SO with you. I've heard one of other Glen Rose residents bring this up before and sidewalks are such a good idea. You just can't walk from one area in town to another because the sidewalks aren't there (or, sometimes, need repair). Last year I went to Boston, MA, which is a walking town. You can go to the park, any attraction, etc either by walking or taking very clean and accessible public transportation. And this year just got back from Seattle, WA which has extensive sidewalks and bike trails all over town that are inner connected. I was trying to imagine riding my bicycle down 144 to town... no way.
