Neighborhood integrity was the issue that defined College Station's last election. Now, the new council has approved a $450,000 plan to cut down on loud parties, trashy areas and parking problems.
Among the approved moves are the addition of code enforcement officers who would work evening shifts, when many codes violation are going unaddressed currently.
The city will also work to strengthen its relationship with the Texas A&M Student Senate, and better its rental registration program.
"It's very, very important to our people," Mayor Ben White said. "Their expectation are that our neighborhoods continue to be livable, high quality, and to that end, we've got to address any concerns or any needs that we might have."
City staff will come back to the council at a meeting in the near future with a more defined plan going forward.
