Commissioners Court - Regular Session
Resolution regarding the Open Meetings Act
Garry Brown, Commissioner Pct. #1
Commissioner Pct. #1
Regular Agenda Items
Discuss, consider, and take appropriate action on a resolution highlighting Williamson County government's history of transparency and recommitting the Williamson County Commissioners Court to upholding the spirit of the Open Meetings Act.
In February 2019, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals struck down a significant provision in the Open Meetings Act, calling it "unconstitutionally vague." That provision aims to keep public officials from convening smaller meetings — without an official quorum present — to discuss public business outside the view of the taxpayers and the media.
