argued Tuesday that changing the fee from $750 to $ 1,250 was tantamount to setting an “arbitrary number.”
“I low can we justify setting an arbitrary figure?” she asked.
Rodriguez suggested a compromise of $1,000, but Mayor Adam Cork said comparing the fee to other cities would be a “reasonable standard.” Rodriguez made an motion to lower the fee to $1,000, but it failed by a 4-3 vote.
Local builder Ed Badouh said the fee was unfair, saying new development hasn’t caused problems in the older parts of the community.
“Right now, developers do on-site detention,” he said. “And if I can do on-site deten
tion for $350, why would I want to pay $1,250?”
Badouh also argued that a rule making it mandatory for developers to connect to a conveyance if a new development was within 3,000 feet of a regional drainage facility was unreasonable.
“The city won’t build the regional facilities,” he said. “And die city won’t condemn property to get to the regional facility. So, you’re dreaming if you think some farmer is going to let me build a concrete ditch through his farm. Its obvious you don’t understand this ordinance.”
John Dierksen said council’s approach was “haphazard.”
“I don’t think it’s appropriate to adopt, and I think its going to explode,” he said.
Pospisil made a motion to postpone the third reading until Monday, but it failed.
Rodriguez, Hull and Pospisil voted against the ordinance.

As they did with the process which ultimately brought Fuller to CISD, board members have opted to conduct the search themselves, rather than hire a search firm or use the Texas Association of School Boards service.
“It’s our hope we can do this quickly, but it will be tough to replace Nancy Fuller,” he said.
Although they have not had a chance to discuss the kind of person or qualifications they will be looking for in a new
booth before Election Day.
Although city officials were concerned about the length of this election’s ballot — the 39 charter amendments almost quadrupled voters’ time in the ballot box — Resendez said he did not believe it hindered anyone’s inclination to participate in the process.
“We have had people express concerns over the length and language of the
leader — they will have their first opportunity May IO — Krueger said he hoped trustees could find someone as much like Puller as possible.
"I did ask her if she had a particular recommendation for us, but she did not,” Krueger said, adding the invitation to submit resumes was open to current GISI) employees and outsiders.
While she did not have a specific replacement in mind, Fuller did say she hoped to be of assistance to trustees as they began their search.
“I’ve fallen in love with this district,” she said. “I want to

I ler greatest hope was that the new superintendent would value the district’s staff as much as she did.
“Whoever comes in will be working with a quality staff. I hope they realize that,” she said.
Fuller would not give any details about her future plans but did say she had several good offers on the table.
“The plans are going well, but I don’t expect to leave immediately. I plan to be a haunt around the community, at least for a while,” she said.
I Ie also encouraged people to bring either a voter registration card or photo identifi-cation with them to help speed up the process.
Election Day is Saturday and the polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
