The recently formed Term Limits Advisory Committee will hold additional public meetings at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 28 and Thursday, July 30, 2020.

The Arlington City Council appointed members to the advisory committee during the July 7, 2020, meeting. The intent of creating the Term Limits Advisory Committee is to review the current provisions in the City’s Charter pertaining to term lengths and term limits and work to formulate recommendations on possible changes to such provisions. The Committee’s charge will be to study and discuss alternative term lengths and term limits provisions, excluding the elimination of term limits; receive input from the community; and prepare recommendations on possible changes for the City Council’s consideration.

In the interest of public health, the Council Briefing Room will be closed to the public for the July 28 and July 30 Term Limits Advisory Committee meetings because of social distancing requirements in place to prevent the spread of the respiratory disease, COVID-19.

The meetings will be televised, however, and residents will have the opportunity to call in to speak.

Members of the public who wish to speak can send an email to tlacpublicparticipation@arlingtontx.gov to register at any time until 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 or Thursday, July 30, 2020.

On July 28, residents can call 833-268-8354; Conference ID – 819-317-596# starting at 6 p.m. to register to speak. On July 30, residents can call 833-268-8354; Conference ID - 561-302-927# to register to speak.

City staff will then call members of the public who register to speak at the appropriate time.

When registering by email, please include your name and address for the record, as well as a telephone number, and the listed agenda item that you would like to speak on.

The meetings can be viewed live on the City's website at www.arlingtontx.gov/city_hall/departments/broadcast or through your local cable provider municipal channel. They will also be recorded live and replayed on the government cable channel throughout the week. To watch these meetings, please tune in to:
