The Royse City Council is set for a busy regular meeting tomorrow night.

Council members will discuss multiple issues related to city development, and consider the city’s waste management options as Sanitation Solutions undergoes a possible ownership change.

Additionally, the council will hold public hearings on annexing two land tracts.

The council will discuss its options following news of a possible ownership change of the city’s waste management provider, Sanitation Solutions.

The purpose of the discussion is to determine whether to continue contracting services from the company.

City Manager Carl Alsabrook said the current owner of the waste collection company has been very responsive to the city’s needs.

“There is a clause in the contract that if [the company] is bought out by a competitor, the council can keep the contract as is and see how things go, or I guess they can theoretically go out for bids,” Alsabrook said. “We’ll have to see how that plays out Tuesday night.”

The council is also set to have public hearings on the annexation of two land tracts along County Road 2526 in Hunt County in addition to hearing testimony on a development plan for the Parkside Village planned development along with concept plans for several properties.

Following the hearing, the council will take action on a resolution for the development plan for the Parkside Village project.

During the business portion of the meeting, the council will consider and act on a revised interlocal agreement with Rockwall County regarding its rendition of fire marshal services to Royse City.

For the regular meeting, the council will also:

-- consider and act on an amendment to the development agreement with Crowell Development

-- consider and act on a contract with PROVOX Systems, Inc. for agenda software and services

-- consider and act on a development agreement regarding DeBerry Reserves
