Abbreviated City Council meeting

The San Marcos City Council had a brief meeting this week. Many members of the council were away at the Best Practices in Building City/University Relations Conference in Gainesville, Florida. The council approved a brief consent agenda and adjourned after 30 minutes. Mayor Susan Narvaiz expressed thanks to Union Pacific officials for coming in and seeing the condition of some railroad crossings first hand, and to Senator John Cornyn who called personally to inquire about rail traffic in the city as well. Place 4 Councilman, Chris Jones mentioned the upcoming Juneteeth celebrations this weekend, and reminded the public that there is still time to enter a planned parade.

City Council meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month. The next meeting will be July 1st at 7 PM at City Hall.

    The conference that the council members are attending is in College Station, not Gainesville, Florida. I apologize for the mistake.

  2. I would like to say “thank you” to the citizens of San Marcos for providing me with the opportunity to attend the University/Community realtions conference in College Station. I learned some new and innovative ways that other university communities around the country are working together to solve problems and create a better relationship. The City of San Marcos was represented very well with members of the council, city administration, and public saftey officers. I am looking forward to collaborating with all who attended and implementing the best ideas for our city.

  3. Thanks for going.

    I think this is a make or break issue for San Marcos, as cities where the university/community relations are strong have really thrived and cities where the relations are strained have really suffered.

    Any chance of a recap of the high points from the conference appearing here?
