Bryan Mayor Addresses Continuing Shelter Talks

The discussions remain ongoing in the City of Bryan on animal sheltering services, though a temporary extension has been agreed to by the council, according to the mayor.

Jason Bienski joined Brazos Valley This Morning Wednesday for his monthly visit a night after the city council met.

One issued was regarding the Brazos Animal Shelter contract, which Bienski says will likely be extended to the end of the fiscal year if the shelter were to approve. This would give the council more time to go through its options for the future.

Due to rising costs, the city has been exploring other possibilities for sheltering outside the Brazos Animal Shelter, including running its own or contracting with another organization.

No staff recommendation was made during last night's executive session of the council meeting, though city staff was instructed to move forward with an extension of their current deal with the shelter through the fiscal year.

On BVTM, Bienski also discussed the proposal being considered by the council regarding an optional fee residents could pay to fix sewer line issues.

Plus, the mayor invited residents to come to the annual Spring Family Campout at Austin's Colony Park on April 9-10. More information can be found at the city's website.
