CORPUS CHRISTI - City Council members have approved a contract with a consultant who will conduct a survey to collect data for the proposed street maintenance fee. The cost of the survey is not to exceed $202,500.
Priscilla Leal was the only council member to vote against the hiring of the consultant.
The council has struggled to come up with a rate deemed fair for businesses. They'll take up that discussion in a few more weeks.
So far, members have agreed a rate of $7 a month is fair for homeowners.
