Mayor Mooney announces January Walk with the Mayor

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - College Station Mayor Karl Mooney appeared on Brazos Valley This Morning Wednesday for the first time in 2019. He spoke about his Walk with the Mayor campaign and changes coming to the Northgate Parking Garage.

The first Walk with the Mayor of 2019 will be Sunday, Jan. 13 in the Estates of Creek Meadows neighborhood. At 2:00 p.m. the mayor and local residents will meet at the intersection of Creek Meadows Blvd North and Cottonwood Creek Lane.

Walk with the Mayor is a way for Mooney to connect with citizens and gives them the opportunity to express their concerns and give a voice to issues in the neighborhood.

"I've now received emails and some comments from students who live in some of our apartment complexes, like The Barracks for example, who have said 'you know what, we've heard you're walking these neighborhoods, would you please come and walk our neighborhood?' So we're going to start including some of those as well," Mooney said.

Mayor Mooney also addressed changes coming to the Northgate Parking Garage. Beginning Friday, Jan. 11, parking can only be paid for using a debit or credit card.

"It's going to be the more efficient way, it's also the safer way," said Mooney. "
