Ask The Mayor
Q. - I just recently received my City Of Terrell
newsletter and enjoyed it thoroughly. BUT, why can't the minutes of
the Council meetings and agendas be included in that newsletter?
I think it would be a great way to keep the
public well informed as to what is going on in their city. I realize
they could come to the meetings but many are too busy and/or can't.
Answer - The newsletter is produced only 3 times
each year at a total cost per issue of about $4200.00 for printing
and mailing. We need to be careful not to add much more content that
would make it too expensive.
The agendas and minutes can make for fairly dry reading. Many of
the actions we take are technical and procedural matters and not
very interesting to most people. Perhaps a variation on your idea
would work. We will look into including highlights of the most notable
and important Council actions taken since the last newsletter. We
want to make sure we keep the newsletter informative, fun, and interesting
Just in case you did not know, the Council meetings are broadcast
live on KPYK AM 1570. Council minutes and agendas
are posted on the City Calendar of the city website.
Thanks for your suggestion.
Hal Richards, Mayor
