Members of the Houston City Council set a meeting date to work on a grass policy during a short session Tuesday night.
The council will gather at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 16, to work on the development of guidelines for the next spring mowing season. It is expected to outline mowing obligations of the city, as well as that of property owners. The council held an earlier workshop to hammer out details, and this is the second time the six-member council will gather.
