BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - The Bryan city council is meeting Tuesday and plans to discuss changes to the city charter.

One of those changes includes allowing BTU to create a broadband internet service. City officials say if approved, it could take a while for it to be up and running.

Another item being considered is changing the term limits for elected city officials. Currently, the City of Bryan’s officials can serve two three-year terms. They are considering changing it to two four-year terms, with a mandatory minimum of two years in between running again after the second term.

The change would align with Brazos County and College Station. Members of the charter review committee say they believe it will help with voter turnout for everything to be on the same day and same year.

The council will determine other charter changes as well. A full list, along with the agenda packet for Tuesday’s meeting, can be found below.
