First Amendment to the City of San Antonio and Converse Interlocal Agreement


SUMMARY:

A resolution recommending to the City Council approval of the First Amendment to an Interlocal Agreement (ILA) between the City of San Antonio (CoSA) and Converse, providing for a series of municipal boundary adjustments and extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) releases from San Antonio to Converse in eastern Bexar County, Texas.
