Liberty Hill City Council will consider amending an ordinance to reflect the change of City Council terms from two to three years at its May 10 meeting.

The context
  • Council held a November 2020 election for residents to vote on whether the terms of office for council members should be changed from two to three years, according to meeting documents.
  • Voters approved changing the terms; however, the city code was never amended to reflect the election results.
  • Council will now have to adopt an ordinance to amend the city code to reflect the election results—changing the terms of council members to three years.
  • While the city began to operate with the correct three-year terms, a final ordinance was never passed, according to meeting documents. The ordinance is a housekeeping item to correct this inaccuracy.
Liberty Hill City Council is scheduled to meet May 10 at 6 p.m. at the Municipal Court Building, located at 2801 RM 1869, Liberty Hill.
