Citizen’s Input

Citizens are welcome to address the City Council at regular meetings.  Citizens’ input is included on the agendas of most public meetings.  To participate, individuals must sign up with the City’s meeting registrar prior to the start of the meeting, and discussion time is generally limited to five (5) minutes per individual registered.  Topics which are discussed by individuals of the audience will not be addressed or discussed by the City Council and/or its staff members as the Texas Open Meetings Act prohibits discussion by the Council on any topic not listed on the official posted agenda. If action by the City Council is in order, an item can be placed on an agenda by contacting the City Secretary, City Manager or Mayor, prior to the preparation of the agenda (usually about a week before the meeting).  Requests can be submitted by mail, email, telephone, text, fax, or in person.  City Hall is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and staff will address any questions, comments, or concerns from the public.
