So many meetings, so much time

Monday, December 11, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano

This week will be a busy one for local government watchers, with two specially called meetings in addition to the jam-packed regular City Council meeting on Thursday. On Tuesday night, the city will hold a town hall meeting with the two city manager finalists at the Austin Convention Center. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the event will take place from 7 until 9 p.m. The town hall will feature a moderated Q&A session, with the opportunity for audience members to ask questions. That meeting will be broadcast live on Channel 6 and Facebook, and Austinites will be able to weigh in on the candidates after the meeting through a survey. Then, on Wednesday, Council will hold a meeting to hear public testimony and take up the Austin Police Department contracts. That meeting will take place at City Hall and is scheduled to start at 3 p.m.
