SAN MARCOS, Texas – The City of San Marcos is implementing new virtual ways for citizens to “attend” public meetings and comment amid the coronavirus pandemic. Citizens are being asked to remain at home to stop the spread of coronavirus. 

Interim City Clerk Tammy Cook and her team have been working on virtual methods such as Zoom for the public to use to continue actively participating in municipal government while following the “stay at home” order from Governor Greg Abbott.

Mayor Jane Hughson signed a Public Health Advisory yesterday that reiterates the importance of staying home unless conducting essential functions. 

“In our current reality, virtual meetings and public comment options are a necessity,” Cook said, “both to comply with Open Meetings laws and to encourage our residents to remain engaged in the decisions and actions being taken by their elected leaders.” 

The public can view all scheduled public meetings, such as City Council, Planning & Zoning Commission (P&Z) and the Historic Preservation Commission (HPC), online from the city’s website.
