A proposal that would empower city housing and planning officials to work with county officials to reclaim and rehab long-abandoned properties is set for a vote in the City Council Committee on Housing and Real Estate Tuesday. The committee is also set during the 10 a.m. meeting to approve a city-backed loan for an Englewood affordable housing complex and the sale of an Austin city-owned lot to a neighboring church.
