The Board Meeting Notice and Agenda are posted in the window next to the door of the District Office and on either the Bulletin Board or South Door of the Blanco County Courthouse in Johnson City at least three days prior to the Board Meeting. Should circumstances require a different meeting time or place; the information will be included in the notices posted in the above mentioned locations. Members of the public may also obtain copies of the Agenda prior to the meeting by coming by the District Office or by FAX or email if requested.
From time to time, should the need arise; the Board may schedule other kinds of Board meetings.
Called Meetings:Called Meetings are similar to a Regular Meeting, but may be held between Regular Meetings to address some special purpose or to allow the Board to address time-sensitive issues. The meeting location and time will normally be the same as the Regular Meetings, but the date will be different. Notices for Called Meetings will be posted in accordance with the policy described under Regular Meetings.
Work Sessions: The Board may schedule a Work Session in order to focus on one or more specific issues, policies, or projects.
