[ARCHIVED] Mayor Carrie Gordon Becomes a Delegate to the Texas Municipal League's Municipal Policy Summit

Screen Shot 2022-06-17 at 2.43.48 PM

We are proud to announce that our Mayor Carrie Gordon, was asked to serve as a delegate to the League’s “Municipal Policy Summit,” which will meet August 22-23, 2022 at the Hilton Austin (located at 500 East 4th Street). The next regular session of the Texas Legislature, will convene in January 2023. Her experience in municipal government, knowledge of relevant issues, and willingness to participate in this important process is of great value to the League. This year, the committee process that develops the League’s legislative program will come from the delegates to the League’s Municipal Policy Summit. The summit will be an intensive, two-day workshop during which League staff will brief the delegates on the myriad legislative issues faced by cities. Most will be issues that arise each session, but many will consist of issues brought to us by city officials. The League now has a fixed legislative program that remains in place from biennium-to-biennium, until modified by Summit delegates. Regardless of how many changes are necessary, the staff briefing at the Summit serves the additional purpose of educating delegates about how they got where they are and what the future will bring. Any Summit recommendations to change the fixed program will be in the form of a resolution that is submitted for consideration to the TML Business Meeting during the Annual Conference and Exhibition in October. The summit will have a chair, vice-chair, a designated liaison from the TML Board, and a membership made up of both elected and appointed municipal officials. This summit, is essential to developing positions on municipal issues.

Nos enorgullece anunciar que se le pidio a nuestra alcaldesa Carrie Gordon que sirviera como delegada en la "Cumbre de Politicas Municipales" de la Liga, que se reunira el 22 y 23 de agosto de 2022 en el Hiton Austin ( ubicado en 500 East 4th Street). La proxima sesion regular de la Legislatura de Texas se reunira en enero de 2023. Su experiencia en el gobierno municipal, conocimiento de temas relevantes y voluntad de participar en este importante proceso es de gran valor para la Liga. Este ano, el proceso del comite que desarrolla el programa legislativo de la Liga vendra de los delgados a la Cumbre de Politica Municipal de la Liga. La cumbre sera un taller intensivo de dos dias durante el cual el personal de la liga informara a los delgados sobre la miriada de problemas legislativos que enfrentan las ciudades. La mayoria seran problemas que surjan en cada sesion, pero muchos consistiran en problemas que nos presenten los funcionarios de la ciudad. La Liga ahora tiene un programa legislativo fijo que permanece vigente de bienio a bienio, hasta que los delegados de la Cumbre lo modifiquen. Independientemente de cuántos cambios sean necesarios, la sesión informativa del personal en la Cumbre tiene el propósito adicional de educar a los delegados sobre cómo llegaron a donde están y qué traerá el futuro. Cualquier recomendación de la Cumbre para cambiar el programa fijo tendrá la forma de una resolución que se presentará para su consideración en la Reunión de Negocios de TML durante la Conferencia y Exposición Anual en octubre. La cumbre tendrá un presidente, un vicepresidente, un enlace designado de la Junta de TML y una membresía compuesta por funcionarios municipales electos y designados. Esta cumbre, es fundamental para desarrollar posiciones en los temas municipales.
