Weekly meeting agendas for San Marcos Planning & Zoning, Special City Council Meetings and various advisory boards and commissions

Melissa Jewett, Publisher

An old saying, “all politics start at the local level.” Crucial decisions on rules, laws, ordinances, codes, annual budget, and a large portion of our taxes are decided at the local level during meetings that most residents don’t think about.

The issues that affect your city, county, schools, and every day of your life are discussed and decided on during these meetings, including your tax rates. It is up to us to keep our local officials honest and shape the future of our county, school districts, and cities.

These weekly meetings, where important decisions are made for Hays County, school districts, and the surrounding local municipalities of Buda, Dripping Springs, Kyle, San Marcos, and Wimberley, are listed below.

Each page includes links to the official agenda, meeting minutes, agenda packets, and live or archived videos and/or audio (if available) for each government entity.

It is up to all of us to keep our local officials, elected or not, honest and ethical. And each of us needs to play an active role and take responsibility for shaping our communities. How it ends begins with you…Melissa Jewett, Publisher
