In other agenda items Tuesday, council will:
* Approve final documents for $6 million in revenue bonds.
In November, council agreed to begin the process to issue the bonds as a private placement with Wachvoia Bank. The bonds will go toward paying almost $15 million in identified water-sewer projects over the next two years.
Council is expected to authorize a second bond placement in 2007.
* Receive bids and consider awarding a lease-purchase contract for $674,425 to RBC Centura.
In October, council approved the purchase of a new Quint fire apparatus and to finance the cost over a four-year period.
RBC Centura offered the lowest fixed interest rate at 3.57 percent. Other bidders were BB & amp;T, SunTrust, Wachovia, Koch Financial Corp. and Citizens South Bank.
* Consider a revised site plan for Drummond Village off Stokes Ferry Road and Earnhardt Road.
* Discuss a Catawba College request to allow parking on the south side of the 100 block of North Park Drive.
