NOTICE is hereby given that a public hearing will be conducted on July 20, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. by the City of Jersey Village City Council in the Civic Center at 16327 Lakeview Drive, Jersey Village, Texas.  However, the City may hold the public hearing through video or telephone conference if social distancing restrictions are still in place during the scheduled hearing time.  

Pursuant to Section 418.016 of the Texas Government Code, on March 16, 2020, the Governor of the State of Texas granted the Office of the Attorney General's request for the temporary suspension of certain provisions of the Texas Open Meetings Act to allow for telephonic or videoconference meetings of governmental bodies that are accessible to the public in an effort to reduce in-person meetings that assemble large groups of people, as a precautionary measure to contain the spread of novel coronavirus COVID-19.

Accordingly, if social distancing restrictions are still in place during the scheduled hearing time, the public may not be allowed to be physically present at this public hearing, but the hearing will be available to members of the public and allow for two-way communications for those desiring to participate via telephone.  To attend the public hearing via telephone, please use the following toll-free number: 
346-248-7799 along with Webinar ID: 950 9775 5375.  If you do not wish to participate via telephone, and social distancing restrictions are still in place prohibiting in person attendance, you can view a live broadcast of the public hearing on YouTube at   https://www.jerseyvillagetx.com/page/city.livestream.   

Any person interested in speaking during the public hearing item on the agenda must submit his/her request via email to the City Secretary at lcoody@jerseyvillagetx.com.  The request must include the speaker's name, address, and the phone number that will be used for teleconferencing.  The request must be received no later than 12:00 p.m. on July 20, 2020.

The purpose of the public hearing is to consider the amendment of land use assumptions and a capital improvements plan and the imposition of an impact fee, and to give any member of the public the right to appear at the hearing and present evidence for or against the update.
