Jersey Village City Council Sets Meeting Schedule for 2024-2025

In an effort to ensure city governance aligns more closely with the community’s needs and schedules, the Jersey Village City Council has established its meeting schedule for June 2024 through May 2025. This decision, made during the March 2024 City Council meeting, reflects the Council's commitment to accessibility and transparency, taking into consideration various factors that impact attendance and participation.


Adapting to Community Needs

The City of Jersey Village operates under a Charter that requires at least one regular City Council meeting each month. These meetings, traditionally held on the third Monday of each month, are where the decision-making process for city governance happens, allowing for public involvement and ensuring the city's operations are conducted in an open and public manner.


Recognizing the need for flexibility, the Council reviewed and adjusted the traditional meeting schedule to better accommodate the local school schedule, city holidays, the city election cycle, and other logistical considerations. These changes aim to maximize community engagement and participation in the governance process.
