Council hearing on public input today

Thursday, January 22, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

Today, City Council will hold two meetings. The first will be a discussion about the “city as an employer,” which will serve as the policy lesson on management. There is also the potential for an executive session, which is discussed in today’s story about the Austin Fire Department. This evening, Council will hold a public hearing to consider proposed changes to the way Council does business and engages with the public. That meeting will take place at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall. Simultaneously, Council will hold a “virtual town hall” meeting, where citizens watching via ATXN (Channel 6) or an online stream are invited to tweet the city using the hashtag #myatxgov or call 1-888-400-1932 (en Español: 1-888-400-9342) during the meeting. Austinites will also be able to continue the conversation about the changes already taking place on the city’s website or by calling 3-1-1. Council members are also scheduled to vote on a resolution that could lead to them lowering their own salaries.
