The meeting will be a learning experience for many. The meeting will still be broadcast on Channel 16 for those that watch it that way. The agenda is posted on the city website, and it includes instructions for all who wish to watch utilizing ZOOM.

In accordance with the order of the Office of the Governor issued March 16, 2020, the La Marque City Council will conduct a Special Meeting on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, at 6:00 PM by telephone and video conference in order to advance the public health goal of limiting face-to-face meetings to slow the spread of the Coronavirus/COVID-19. 

The City Council will be holding a Special Meeting to consider two items. The first will be extending the deadline for issuance of bonds that are necessary to begin the complete the work under the contract with the citizens we entered into this year for the expansion of the wastewater treatment plant, refurbishing of the Gulf Greyhound water tower, renovation of numerous lift stations and other various items. We had begun the process of issuing the bonds prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and established guidelines for the issuance of the bonds. Based on closures we are now off on those timelines and need to extend them to make sure we meet all SEC requirements for the issuance of those bonds.

Additionally, the Council will consider an extension to the existing local disaster declaration. This is necessary to ensure that all unforeseen expenditures we have that arise that are related to the current pandemic are eligible for at least partial reimbursement by the federal government.
