City Council Retreat Scheduled

The Mineola City Council has a retreat planned for Saturday, June 15th at 9 AM in the council chamber. A retreat is where each of the department heads of the city come before the council with their priorities and ideas they would like to implement in their department. Each council member will also have their own opportunity to “pitch” their own ideas. The council then takes that all under advisement and sets a master list of priorities for the city to work toward accomplishing.

If you are someone who has an idea about how things should work in your city, this is a great opportunity to contact your alderman and communicate your vision to them. These people are there to serve the people and they welcome your suggestions or ideas.

To contact your alderman, use this link.

The public is welcome to attend the retreat, but this is not an open forum. If you have something to say, you need to contact your alderman before the retreat.

It will be interesting to hear the ideas tossed around by the department heads and the council members themselves.

    YES, I do!
    I live on county road 2210 and people have no common sense when it comes to the speed limit. I am one of several families on this road with children ( one of mine had special needs and little safety awareness) and if really like to see speed limit signs up here on this road starting 30mph.
    That’s my 2 cents

      By the very nature of an address of CR, this is not a city issue. I live on Johnson and believe me I understand what it is like to live on a “freeway.” I would suggest you contact your county commissioner about this problem and see what he/she can do for you. Thank you and I always like to hear comments.

    Has there been any progress on the bricks for veterans at the new park area?

    I know Lou Mallory and Karl Forrester (Century 21) are on this committee. You might get in touch with them. Personally, I have not heard anything about it. James and I donated $$ in the beginning but sure would be willing to buy a brick or two!
