City Council To Hold Special Virtual Meeting

The Southlake City Council will hold a special virtual meeting on March 23, 2020, starting at 5:30 pm.

Meeting Agenda
The short meeting agenda will consist of the following items:

  • Executive Session
  • Discuss and consider adopting Resolution No. 20-015, extending the Mayor’s First Amended Declaration of Disaster.
  • Consider adopting Resolution 20-016 ordering postponement of May 2, 2020, General Election to November 3, 2020.
  • Consider adopting Resolution 20-017 ordering postponement of May 2, 2020, City Bond Election to November 3, 2020.

The special meeting is being held in compliance with Governor Greg Abbott’s action that allows telephonic or videoconference meetings of governmental bodies that are accessible to the public, yet reduce in-person interaction and encourage social distancing. The consideration to delay Southlake’s General and Bond Elections is based on Governor Abbott’s proclamation allowing political subdivisions to move their general and special elections to the next uniform election date, November 3, 2020.
