Main Ste 500 to discuss and consider action on the terms associated with the water park transfer of lease from Source Horizon, LLC to Typhoon Texas. The meeting begins with Executive Session which is closed to the public, after which any decisions on the lease will be conducted in open session. 

After announcing the transfer of lease on December 13, the terms of the agreement now return to City Council to be finalized. The proposed terms include a specified investment into the park by Typhoon Texas to add family-friendly amenities and new attractions, details on payments, and repairs and maintenance expectations. In return, proposed terms have the PCDC and city helping to negotiate a public access off FM 685 with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and outlining payments from PCDC including marketing and promotional contributions.

The meeting will stream online at www.pflugervilletx.gov/pftv and on Suddenlink Channel 17 and 117 and Uverse 99. 

Don't forget about your bulk pickup options 
This holiday season you may entertain guests, open gifts and have additional trash bulk pickup needs. Please note that you can put your trash cart plus an additional six bags and/or bulk items at the curb on your trash day year-round. trash

Progressive Waste Solutions offers complimentary pickup of household items like stoves, washers and dryers, and mattresses that are too large to put in the trash bin, but the six item maximum per week does apply. 

If you have large boxes, cut them up and put them in your recycle cart. Don't advertise new gifts on the curb. Be sure to cut up boxes for large items so you aren't letting everyone know you have a brand new television or other item in your home.

Tips to conserve, reduce and recycle this holiday
Tips from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) help us to conserve this holiday.
Use–and reuse–gift bags, since most gift wrap is difficult to recycle.
Serve meals on reusable plates with cloth napkins, and compost the appropriate food scraps.
Buy only the products you need, and use up the products you buy before throwing them out. Buy products made from or packaged in recycled materials.
Rechargeable batteries are everywhere. Most can be recharged up to 1,000 times, but when they no longer hold a charge, recycle them instead of tossing them in the trash where they can pose a threat to groundwater.
People receive more than 80 billion pieces of junk mail each year and most of it ends up in landfills. Opt out of unwanted catalogs, prescreened credit and insurance offers. And remember to recycle that junk mail you still receive. Consider reusing holiday cards in craft projects instead of tossing them in the trash.

No Pfireworks please 
To keep our neighborhoods and open areas safe, the city of Pflugerville has zero tolerance for fireworks. Tickets issued for firework violations may be subject to a maximum $500 fine. Thank you for being firework free in the city limits in your New Year celebration. 

A reminder to all pet owners, put your animal's collar on as illegal fireworks and large get-togethers may scare pets. If your animal does get out, be sure to check the Pflugerville Animal Shelter, 1600 Waterbrook, and post a pic on the shelter Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/Pflugervilleslostpets.
