Agenda items tied to resolutions to censure Place 2 Trustee Mary Bone and Place 7 Trustee Danielle Weston will be considered in open session during the meeting. Identical drafts of the resolutions state the proposed censures tie back to a June 16 board meeting.
At that meeting, despite remaining present for the entirety of a tax rate hearing, both trustees departed shortly before the board was to vote on its 2022-23 budget. The resolutions attached to the Aug. 18 agenda can be found here.
If approved, the resolutions will require Weston and Bone to respond to calendar invites for board activity, attend meetings unless extenuating circumstances would prevent them from doing so and provide prior notice to the board president regarding planned absences.
The board previously considered measures to censure Bone and Weston after they abruptly left a September 2021 board meeting.
However, a temporary restraining order filed by Bone and Weston in the 425th District Court of Williamson County prevented the board from acting on the measures.
The suit was dismissed in April, according to court records.
