Mr. Alderman inquired about water wells and how fire protection would be incorporated in the proposed development.

Ms. Davis informed that the City would be unable to provide fire protection. In addition, it was not a prerequisite at the platting phase.

 

Mr. Lee asked if there was any concern regarding water wells.

Ms. Davis informed that well and septic systems were approved and regulated by the county.

Mr. Carpenter informed the plat was outside of the city limits, therefore infrastructure would be determined by the county.

 

Mr. Arnold asked, if the property was outside city limits, why the request was before the Commission.

Ms. Davis informed they were outside of the city limits, but within the city's ETJ.

 

Ms. Ramirez asked at what phase of development fire protection was considered.

Ms. Davis informed fire protection would be reviewed at the building permit phase.

Ms. Legaux informed that standard practice in the ETJ was the city had the authority to approve the plat, but must coordinate with the county on fire protection.

Mr. Carpenter informed, without speaking for the fire department, the closest fire department would likely respond in an emergency, and would have to pump water if none was available.

Mr. Doan informed that in the absence of inter-local arrangements, fire and police protection were provided by the county.

 

Mr. Schweinle asked what the rule was if a similar situation in regard to lack of water service was within the city limits.

Mr. Carpenter stated if the property was located outside of 300 feet from a water source, an applicant would not be forced to extend. Therefore, water would have to be pumped by the fire department in the case of a fire.
