Council to introduce charter ordinances

HUNTER DWORACZYK [email protected]

The Taylor City Council will hear public comments for two ordinances involving a special election for a charter amendment during its regular meeting Thursday, Jan. 25.

The city will introduce an ordinance that will put charter amendment propositions from a resident’s now- tions from a resident’s now-verified petition on the May ballot. Gary Gola submitted a petition in November that involved four propositions to change the city charter.

Proposition A aims to set compensation at $125 for each council member and the mayor per meeting. This would supersede any payment established by resolution or ordinance.

Proposition B would establish a minimum period of 72 hours between meetings from the time a nonemergency ordinance is introduced to the time it can be adopted.

Proposition C would designate that the council member elected to the At-Large position serve as the mayor. Currently, the mayor is chosen by the five elected council members from among their ranks.

Proposition D would require that all meetings of the City Council be held within Taylor.

Another ordinance set to be introduced at the meeting involves adding a fifth proposed charter change to the ballot that would make polling locations consistent with state law.

This addition would be listed as Proposition F on the ballot and adds that the polling place for the election of City Council members will be at a convenient location within each respective district.

In other business,

city leaders will: ı Receive a presentation from the Brazos River Authority on long-term water supply strategy.

ı Consider awarding the Taylor Municipal Airport a new fuel facility construction contract.

ı Consider adding a full-time communications director position and receive an update regarding contracted communication services.

Taylor City Council regularly meets the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 400 Porter St. in Taylor. Agendas and live broadcasts are available at http://www.taylortx. gov.
