The meeting of the Kermit City Council is a public meeting –it would be wonderful to see council chambers filled with interested citizens.
The agenda listing shown below is an abbreviated listing –we have omitted the routine business items. For those wishing to view an official agenda listing, download this .PDF document or visit the Kermit City Hall.
Any citizen recognized by the Mayor may appear to present pertinent information before the Council. The Open Meeting Law, Article 6252-17, V.T.C.S., however, prohibits the Council from rendering a decision unless prior notice has been given and posted publicly seventy-two (72) hours in advance of the meeting and the person(s) name and subject appears on the posted Agenda. Exceptions may be considered, if the request is accompanied by a statement describing the nature of the urgent public necessity requiring the addition to the Agenda no less than four (4) hours in advance of the meeting.
Discuss matters of business from the public
For the first time in a long time –there were a few citizens in the audience. These interested folks had nothing on the agenda nor any intent on addressing the council –it was good to see them there.
Recognition of Visitors, Citizen of the Month and/or Presentation of Proclamation. None
