City Council Regular Meeting
GBRA currently owns 3.4096 acres located at 22330 IH-35 North that was formerly used by GBRA to own and operate a wastewater treatment plant. The plant was decommissioned in 2021 and GBRA is currently selling the property and the City has an appraised value for $698,000.
The property is in a prime location on I-35 and the City has an existing lift station at the back of the property. It is apparent this lift station will need to be expanded to accommodate growth and serve undeveloped land in Northern Schertz. The property would be advantageous for staff to use as a storage area to increase efficiencies through the reduction of windshield time, as well as reduce fuel and maintenance costs for equipment. In addition, this location could be used for additional City Facilities.
City Council approved this on first reading at their meeting of March 1, 2022.
The goal is for the City to provide residents with appropriate levels of service while being forward-thinking and stewards of the budget by purchasing this property at a lower cost than the appraised value.
Through the purchase of this property, the City will continue to provide high levels of service while being fiscally responsible and accommodating anticipated growth.
SUMMARY OF RECOMMENDED ACTION
Staff recommends City Council approve of Ordinance 22-T-10 on final reading to adjust the budget for the purpose of purchasing the property located at 22330 IH-35 North to allow the City to accommodate anticipated growth and continue providing high levels of service while being fiscally responsible.
The fiscal impact is $570,000 will be divided evenly between the Water/Sewer Fund and General Fund.
Staff recommends City Council approve of Ordinance 22-T-10 on final reading to adjust the budget for the purpose of purchasing the property located at 22330 IH-35 North.
