Tuesday, October 23, 2012, Public Comments: MCDDC Board Members and other concerned citizens addressed the Mayor and City Council regarding the TIRZ 17 Budget for 2013 and CIP 2013-2017 which was on the agenda for approval the following day. Most speakers requested the delay of the vote particularly in light of the recent changes to the TIRZ 17 Board (three new members out of seven, including a new Chair). After Public Comments were concluded, Board Members met with District A CM Helena Brown and her staff. CM Brown prepared a press release (http://www.houstontx.gov/council/a/press/20121023.pdf) supporting delay of the budget vote. Efforts resulted in a two week delay of the vote.
