Wear YourTux

The regularly-scheduled Beach & Dune meeting - which would have been called today at 3 PM at the Public Works building, had it been "formal" -- didn't happen. Apparently. Nobody called and there was no agenda posted.

However. I heard from a trusted source that an "informal" beach & dune taskforce meeting to discuss dune building (which as you probably already know is a subject I hold near and dear to my heart) was indeed being held at 3 PM at Public Works. So I called PW and asked point blank if there was a meeting -- formal, informal or otherwise. I was told very specifically that there was not by the lady (I think she said her name was Mary) who answered the phone.

I hope she is right and that my trusted source is wrong. Because it really doesn't look good if committees are having "informal" meetings to which only select members are invited.

And speaking of meetings - can anyone tell me if CPAC is meeting Thursday night? I hear no, then I hear yes and I have received no official notice one way or the other. I suggest to any members who might be reading these words that perhaps we should meet - informally of course - here at my house to discuss the land usage chapter.

You can leave your tux in the closet.

If in fact a meeting did occur and two or more Aldermen showed up, that would be a violation of the Texas Open Meetings Act.

Free advice is worth what it cost nothing however; any meeting of the CPAC Committee, formal or informal should be posted and comply with the, "Open Meeting Act."

Well, that is exactly my point.
Was I being too subtle?
I hardly ever get accused of _that ;-)

Well, there was a meeting. Mary either lied to me or doesn't know what the heck is going on outside the perimeter of her desk. The members of the taskforce who were there made recommendations to staff - apparently as private citizens as the majority of the taskforce members were not informed about nor invited to the meeting. There was no quorum, so how could action be taken or recommendations be made?

And why bother having a task force at all?

I wasn't clear about which meeting you are talking about--beaches and dunes or CPAC? Or were there meetings of both? Thanks.
