Brazoria County Commissioners Court on Tuesday voted unanimously to amend the court’s rules regarding the order of the agenda concerning public appearances.
The amendment maintains a time limit of five minutes, but allows the commissioners court, by majority vote, to extend the time permitted for a particular appearance. The amendment also places public appearances on the agenda after reports from department heads, which follows the court’s regular business, but prior to adjourning to discuss any executive session items on the agenda.
An item concerning an agreement for the design of an airport hangar was pulled from the agenda. Therefore, the item was not acted upon.
