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.

City Council to Hold Special Meeting to Consider Aerial Spraying

UPDATE:  The Southlake City Council  has voted to participate in the Denton County aerial mosquito spraying program.  Look for further updates tomorrow on My Southlake News and CityofSouthlake.com.

The Southlake City Council will hold a special meeting and public hearing at 5:00 p.m., Monday, August 27th to consider participation in the Denton County aerial mosquito spraying program.  The action is being considered in response to Denton County’s West Nile Virus Health Emergency and as a way to help eradicate the mosquito population.

The option was made available to Southlake since the City straddles both Tarrant and Denton Counties.

Staff from the Denton County Health Department as well as the City of Southlake will be presenting information for the Council’s and the public’s consideration.  The public is invited to speak at the public hearing.
