City Council Meeting Today

CORPUS CHRISTI -- City council will meet later today to discuss advertisements on bus benches, among other things.

At this time, if a person or business wants to put a sign on city property, they must buy a permit from the city.

The fee is a one time payment that costs around $149 per sign.

Today, the council will hold a public hearing and vote on whether the RTA should be exempt from paying for the permit.

RTA has told us in the past they do not own the benches, Coopers Advertising does. At least one third of their profits from the signs goes to the city.

Also, city council will vote on whether or not dogs should be allowed in restaurants with outdoor dining areas.

Many places have areas that allow dogs to accompany their owners while they dine in an outside dining area.

The council could allow restaurants to continue this if they request a special certificate from the health department.
