COLUMBIA — During City Manager Bill Watkins' biweekly news update at 9:30 a.m. Friday, he reminded residents that next week's City Council meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday rather than Monday because of Independence Day.
During the meeting, H3 Studio plans to give a presentation of its downtown planning charrette. The council will not make any decisions regarding the charrette, Watkins said. The presentation is a chance for the public to see the plan.
The council will hold public hearings on three items of business:
- Authorizing the construction of the Range Line Sewer and Streetscape Improvement Project.
- Considering proposed changes to the Columbia Transit bus routes.
- Considering the city's 2011 Capital Improvement Project Plan.
No new business is on the agenda for the meeting.
Thumper Entertainment plans to talk about the Roots 'N' Blues 'N' BBQ Festival during the pre-council meeting at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday in City Hall.
