The Copperas Cove City Council is expected to vote during a meeting Tuesday night on a letter of agreement to relocate a water line to Central Texas College under Interstate 14.

Cove supplies water to CTC, which consumes approximately 50 million gallons of water per month, according to city documents. When the water line supplying potable water to CTC broke, it was temporarily run through a drainage culvert. CTC hired an engineering firm and contractor to bore under I-14 and install the new casing and water line.

Cove will be responsible for the costs of maintaining the new service line under I-14, according to the letter of agreement.

In other business, Tuesday’s agenda includes having the council vote to authorize the purchase of two 2018 light-duty trucks for use by Copperas Cove Animal Control at a cost of approximately $57,500.

The council will also vote whether to reject bids received for customizing six new police pursuit SUVs, and for construction of a golf cart path at Hills of Cove Golf Course. If the council votes to reject the bids, both projects will be rebid.

The council will consider and vote on the appointment of members to the Keep Copperas Cove Beautiful Commission and the Economic Development Corporation board of directors.

The council agenda includes a closed session during which council members will discuss the property at 305 S. Main St, which houses the Copperas Cove City Utilities.

The council meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at the Cove Technology Center, 508 S. Second St.
