Webster City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Webster City Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to adopt a resolution finding that CenterPoint Energy Houston Electric, LLC's application for a rate increase for its distribution cost recovery factor should be denied.

CenterPoint has filed for an increase in revenues totaling $89,560,854 for its electricity service.

The Gulf Coast Coalition of Cities, a coalition of several cities, including Webster, has reviewed the increase and recommended members deny the filing.

The city council voted unanimously to postpone funding to Communities In Schools-Bay Area for staff to gather information.

The city council voted unanimously to approve $600 in funding for the Houston Symphony League Bay Area.

Both were requests for funding through the city's General Fund for FY2018. Communities in Schools had requested $10,000, the first request for funding from the city since 2010. The Houston Symphony League had requested $1,085. Webster has provided $600 in funding for the past 7 years.

The city council voted unanimously to postpone any action regarding the closed-session mid-year evaluation of the city manager and the city secretary.

All other items were approved by unanimous vote. All members were present. Agenda
