Saturday brings another chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms to the Brazos Valley. During the afternoon hours, scattered areas of rain and storms could develop in the daytime heat (30%). A line of rain and thunderstorms will be possible between sunset and midnight -- moving in from the north & west. If these storms can reach the area, they could pose a localized flooding & damaging wind threat.
In an earlier-than-expected move, College Station's City Council took steps to name a new stretch of road.
Thursday, the council decided to name the new Highway 40 and Greens Prairie Road East after William D. Fitch, the former councilman and school board member. Fitch is largely credited with the development of the south side of town, including Southwood Valley and Pebble Creek.
Fitch was the second-leading vote getter in the city's "Name That Road" contest. Of the 702 votes, he garnered 107.
Only Aggie Men's Basketball coach Billy Gillespie earned more votes.
Even with citizen input, the city council had the final decision on naming the street. Thursday's vote was 3-to-1 in favor of Bill Fitch Road, with three council members absent from the meeting. The lone dissenting vote was John Happ's. He said they should have waited until the full council was present to vote on the issue.
