Quotable Quotes

"Tis our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.."
 - George Washington (1796)


"Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto."
 - Thomas Jefferson (1799)


"The ongoing migration of persons to the United States in violation of our laws is a serious national problem detrimental to the interests of the United States." - Ronald Reagan, 1981


"Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always, even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What is worth living for?" - William J. Bennett in a lecture to the U. S. Naval Academy, Nov 24, 1997

    • Workshop Meeting (open):  Visitors can come and listen to the Ciity Council members discuss the items on the agenda.  Sometimes there is  a presentations given on a topic.  The Agenda will will tell what time it starts which may be something like 5:30 PM if there is a presenation but the agenda review usually starts at 6:30 PM...  The items in this meeting tend to get passed in the Consent Agenda portion of the City Council meeting.  Therefore, you should also try to attend these meetings to hear what is going on.

    • City Council Meeting: Usually start at 7:00 PM.  This is the meeting where the City Council formally votes on the items in the Agenda.  It is also the meeting for citizens to come and speak to the council in a public forum. You must arrive before this meeting and fill out a card if you wish to talk or submit a card with your comments.  The meeting agenda contains events of the meeting usually in this order:

      • Invocation - Prayer, some members do a moment of silence.

      • Pledge of Allegiance (USA & Texas)

      • Public Hearings

      • Visitors / Citizens Forum:  A few minutes time for you to communicate to the City Council.  You must fill out a card before the meeting.  You can speak or you do not want to speak then you can write a sentence to show your support or opposition.  Again, fill out the card before the meeting starts.

      • Consent Agenda:  Many items voted on at once.  These items may be discussed in the Open Workshop meetings.

      • Regular Hearings: individual items that needs separate votes or discussion.  Usually the discussion was done in the workshop meeting.

      • Reports: These are usually closing statements from department heads before being adjourned to the closed session.  Almost everyone in the audience leaves at this point but the Council will come back after the closed session to vote on something discussed in the Closed Session Meeting.

    • Closed Session Meeting:  the council convenes and discusses private issues like personnel issues or legal council stuff.

      • Reconvene:  They may come back to the City Council Chambers to vote on something but it is usually to adjourn the meeting for the night.
