City approves ordinance

The Gatesville City Council, voted unanimously to approve the city’s revised Chapter 22 subdivision ordinance at their meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 8.

The city ordinance (2018-10) repeals an outdated Chapter 22 of the city’s code of ordinances and adopts a revision to their subdivision policies.

The council also voted unanimously to establish and approve an application fee for preliminary and final plats for subdivisions when submitted to the city.

The fees include: an application fee of $125 for plan review; $125 for amended plats which will be approved by the city manager’s offi ce; and $250 each for preliminary and fi nal plats.

Previously, the city did not impose application fees on developers or builders for plats and plan reviews. Subdividers simply reimbursed the city for the cost of postage, newspaper ads, and recording fees.
