AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) – Beginning with proclamations on Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Dyslexia Awareness Month, the Amarillo City Council released its agenda for its 1 p.m. Tuesday meeting.

The agenda further included an opportunity for public comments, a discussion on the Broadband Initiative, discussions on transit and bus shelters, and an update from the Canadian River Municipal Water Authority.

The full agenda can be read here, and the meeting will be broadcast live within this article with a recording made available later Tuesday evening.

During the meeting, the City of Amarillo decided to postpone the vote to rezone the North Heights Neighborhood indefinitely.

This comes after a lot of discussion and disagreement with the plan, a number of members of the community spoke against the plan during public comment.

Also during the meeting, the City Council considered a signatory lease agreement with Allegiant Travel Company.

The amendments included approval of three-year signatory airport use and lease agreement between the company and Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport. Leaders also considered an amendment to the airport use and lease agreement. These changes were considered ahead of the first Allegiant Flight coming into the city Thursday. They passed with a five to zero vote.
