Week in Review: 11.10.2019

Floresville illegally moves election; San Antonio has no clear climate plan; Public kept out of public meetings.

Posted by The Texas Monitor on Monday, November 11, 2019

No election this week in Floresville, after city ignored state law – If you’re in Floresville Tuesday, you might see people outside of the Wilson County Elections Office, but they won’t be voting.

San Antonio’s climate plan: partly cloudy on details – San Antonio earlier this month joined Austin and two dozen other major American cities in adopting a climate action plan aimed at operating city government and city-owned utilities and transportation systems entirely without fossil fuels by 2050.

Keeping the “public” in public business gets complicated – The Amarillo City Council once tried to ban clapping at its meetings, then decided to start meeting at 7 a.m., a move some local critics claimed was done to reduce public input. Finally, last year, the council moved all public comments to a work session an hour before the regular meeting.
