The City Council is always pleased to have citizens attend its meetings and welcomes comments during the Citizen / Visitor Comments section of the meeting; however, pursuant to the Texas Open Meetings Act, Council cannot deliberate or vote on issues not posted on the agenda. Therefore, those types of items must be posted 72 hours prior to the City Council meeting. In addition, City policy requires that all items be placed on the agenda one week prior to the council meeting. If it is not posted, no deliberation between council members may occur. The Mayor or presiding officer may only respond with specific factual information or recite existing policy. Citizens may also comment on agenda items after the council has debated them first. The audience members, one at a time, will then be allowed to speak. The speaker will direct his or her comments to the Mayor who is the moderator. Comments will be limited to three (3) minutes per speaker. The speaker must approach the podium and state his name and address before he or she begins to speak. Negative or disparaging remarks will not be tolerated. The City Rules of Decorum will be followed at all times. With the exception of these designated portions of the meeting, the Mayor will not be taking questions or comments from the audience. We ask that the audience please turn their cell phones off or put them on vibrate and that the council do likewise. The Mayor also advises the council that they not text or browse on their cell phones during the meeting.
