Strategic Outcome(s): Government that Works for All.]ITEM IN FRONT OF US TODAY.
UM, AS SOON AS I HEAR BACK, WE WILL, UM, I'LL GET BACK WITH YOU MAYOR, IF WE'RE GOING TO, UH, HOW DOES THAT AFFECT IF WE'RE GOING TO ADD ANOTHER SITE, HOW DOES THAT AFFECT OUR ACTIONS TODAY? WE WOULD HAVE TO RETURN, UM, DURING ANOTHER SPECIAL CALLED MEETING AND, UH, THE COUNTY WOULD HAVE TO APPROVE THE SITE AS WELL.
SO I THINK THE QUESTION THAT WAS JUST ASKED BY KENT THROUGH HER TOE WAS CAN WE PASS OR QUESTION WAS, CAN WE PASS THIS, IDENTIFYING THAT AS A LOCATION CONTINGENT ON APPROVAL BY TRAVIS COUNTY? I THINK THE BEST THING TO DO WOULD BE TO COME TO APPROVE WHAT WE HAVE IN FRONT OF US.
WHAT KIND OF TIME CONSTRAINTS DO WE HAVE THAT WORKS ON OUR END? HOWEVER, I WOULD NEED TO WORK WITH THE COUNTY TO ENSURE THAT THEY APPROVE THE, IF IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THEY APPROVE THE, THE EARLY VOTING LOCATION AS WELL BEFORE COUNCIL TAKES ACTION, RIGHT? WE'LL
UH, SO I JUST GUESS I JUST WANT TO CHECK WITH CITY LEGAL TO MAKE SURE THAT IF WE APPROVE IT THIS WAY AND TRY THE COUNTY APPROVES IT THEIR WAY, BUT IF THERE'S ANY LOGISTICAL ISSUE, IF WE WIND UP WITH ANY CHALLENGES, DOES THAT MAKE SENSE? YEAH.
SO IF YOU WANTED TO TAKE THIS ACTION, THEN IT WOULD HAVE TO BE APPROVED BY COMMISSIONER'S COURT AND BY CITY COUNCIL BEFORE JANUARY 10TH, WHICH IS WHEN EARLY VOTING BEGINS, CAROLINE, HELLO, THIS IS MYRNA CLERK'S OFFICE.
UH, STAFF WILL BE REACHING OUT, UH, EACH OF YOU TO TALK ABOUT THE POTENTIAL FOR A SPECIAL CALL NEXT WEEK, AS WE DISCUSSED JUST A MOMENT AGO WITH THAT HAPPY NEW YEAR, UH, EVERYBODY, UH, AND, UH, SEE YOU NEXT WEEK.
