The Weston Lakes City Council agendas are beginning to gain length as Council continues to get its fairly recent subdivision-turned-city into working order.

Council on Tuesday approved the formation of a Emergency Preparedness Committee (EPC), which will include a representative from several of the city's already established boards, like the Property Owners Association and the Municipal Utility District.

"We have (almost) 2,500 residents," said Mayor Mary Rose Zdunkewicz. "We need an EPC."

Council also approved the distribution of an emergency preparedness guide to residents and discussed an emergency preparedness ordinance for the city.

In addition to organizing the city, Council also approved adopting the 2-mile stretch of FM 1093 in front of Weston Lakes for trash pickup in efforts to beautify the city, Zdunkewicz said. Council is looking for volunteers to help with the project.

In other actions, Council signed an inter local agreement with Fort Bend County for an on site sewer disposal system; discussed creating a city Web site; hired Joan Robertson -who is also the city secretary for Simonton City Council-as a its part-time city secretary; and accepted the City of Simonton's offer of using Simonton City Hall for city council meetings and as a city office.

Starting with their next regular meeting on March 24, Weston Lakes City Council will be meeting at 6 p.m. in Simonton City Hall, 35011 FM 1093, instead of the Fort Bend County Precinct 3 office.

For the March 14 public hearing on the city budget, however, Council will meet at 1 p.m. at the Precinct 3 office, 8100 FM 359 in Fulshear.
