City Council discusses PD building expansion, approves bond sales and discusses legislation
Council postponed the Police-Department building-expansion decision two to four weeks because the available expansion options require spending more than voters approved or postponing potentially necessary construction.

Council also discussed recent Texas legislation involving Texas taking away city ordinances at the meeting Monday.
