As Rosenberg expands, traffic coming through the city increases.
And that includes big trucks driving on small streets.
At Tuesday’s Rosenberg City Council workshop meeting, council members will discuss making an amendment to the code of ordinances to include Mons Avenue as a street upon which the operation of trucks is allowed.
Currently, a commercial bus business operates at 1911 Mons Ave. In order to appropriately enforce this ordinance on commercial buses, city staff recommends amending the language the code of ordinances to specifically include commercial motor vehicles.
The code of ordinances defines a truck as the following:
- Has three or more axles;
- Is designed and maintained primarily for the transportation of material or property; and
- Is used for the loading and unloading of such material or property.
In other business, Rhonda Kuykendall, along with Police Chief Jonathan White, will deliver a presentation from the Fort Bend County Human Trafficking Team with suggestions for an ordinance addition.
The Fort Bend County Human Trafficking Team has worked diligently to combat sex trafficking operations in Fort Bend County, city staff said.
This item has been included on the agenda to provide the council information regarding illicit massage businesses that front for commercial sex operations.
Kuykendall, a Fulshear resident who chair’s the district attorney’s Human Trafficking Team, said the team is working on statewide legislation, ordinances in surrounding cities and education and awareness symposiums locally to help caregivers and kids protect themselves.
“If communities are not actively looking for sex trafficking, they won’t see it,” Kuykendall said at a press conference at the Fort Bend County Justice Center earlier this month.
This, and more will be discussed at the workshop meeting, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 2110 Fourth St.
Seating will be limited; masks will be recommended and encouraged. There will be mandatory temperature checks.
Meetings can also be watched live on the city’s YouTube Channel “RosenbergTXGov,” on the city’s website at www.rosenbergtx.gov/tv, and on Comcast Channel 16 for residents within the city limits.
