City Secretary's Office - Council Basics 101

On Monday, July 11, 2016, at 6:00 p.m., the City Secretary’s Office will conduct a Council Basics 101 for anyone considering running for local office.  The public will hear from the City Secretary, City Attorney, and City Manager on a variety of topics.    

The program is designed to help potential candidates better understand the requirements, duties and limitations of the office, as well as open meetings laws and conflicts of interest. We’ll also cover our form of government, the role of City staff, and the critical issues facing the City. Our goal is to help potential candidates make an informed decision about entering a political race and to gain an accurate understanding about what’s expected, if elected.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation, and the Candidate Packets will also be reviewed at that time.

The positions of Mayor and Councilmember, Place 2, will be on the ballot this coming November.  The first day to file for either position will be July 25 (July 23 is a Saturday, so it has been moved to the following Monday). For more information, the City Secretary’s Office can be reached at 764-3500.

Thank you and have a great day!

Workshop Series: Cut Water Bill and Grow your Landscape

Good Morning, Neighbors!

Below is a link to a Youtube video with City of College Station Water Services Coordinator Jennifer Nations promoting a 3 part series for neighborhoods and residents on ways to cut your water bill and still grow your landscaping. Jennifer partnered with the Brazos Valley Master Gardeners to put together this very informative workshop just in time for the summer. As we know, summers in the Brazos Valley are when water bills increase and landscaping can suffer from the heat. Please consider attending one of these workshops to find ways to lower your water bill and save your plants and shrubs. There will be prizes and give ways at the workshops. Pass the information along to other neighbors and friends that maybe interested in attending as well.
