City Council consists of one (1) Mayor and five (5) Council Members and they are elected by a place system. Mayor and Council Member positions are two year terms with the offices of Mayor and Council Member Positions 1 and 2 eligible for election in even years and Council Member Positions 3, 4 and 5 eligible for election in odd years. Texas Government Code Chapter 551, known as the Texas Open Meetings Act (or the “Act”) only applies when a quorum of a governmental body is in attendance and that body discusses public business. It does not apply to social gatherings that are unrelated to the body’s public business. It also does not apply when public officials attend regional, state, or national workshops, as long as there are no formal actions taken and any discussion of public business is only incidental to the event.
