City Council Approves MEDC Payments, Schedules Tax Hearings

The McKinney City Council pulled double duty during Monday evening’s meeting with a work session and a regular council meeting, too. The need for the two meetings was due to National Night Out, which will be held throughout McKinney on Tuesday.

As part of the updates, Mayor Brian Loughmiller requested that the council review the bylaws of the city’s boards and commissions to ensure that each board or commission has its term limits properly structured.

The council discussed several other issues during its regular meeting, including:

Payments to Raytheon and Encore Wire Approved: As part of the consent agenda, which is voted on without further discussion unless a council member requests discussion, payments were authorized to Raytheon and Encore Wire for their recent expansions in McKinney.

The payments were requested as a part of a budget amendment for the McKinney Economic Development Corporation. The MEDC approved payment to Raytheon for $1,530,000 and $700,000 to Encore Wire pending certificate of occupancy for both companies.

Cell Phone Tower Vote Delayed Again: A vote on a Verizon cell phone tower located approximately 1,500 feet East of Lake Forest Drive and approximately 230 feet South of future Collin McKinney Parkway was tabled indefinitely at the request of the applicant. The vote on the cell phone tower was previously tabled in July.
Public Hearings and Vote Scheduled for 2013-2014 Property Tax Rate: Two public hearings and an adoption date were scheduled for the proposed 2013-2014 tax rate. The meeting dates are listed below:

First Public Hearing: August 20, 2013, 6:00 p.m. at the Council Chambers

Second Public Hearing: September 3, 2013, 6:00 p.m. at the Council Chambers
