The meeting’s agenda states the public will be able to listen to the meeting by calling the toll-free number 888-409-5380. That number will also allow for two-way communication between the public and council. People can also email comments and questions during the meeting to email@example.com.
People who want to attend the meeting in person will also be allowed to do so. Mayor Jeff Cheney said council considered a virtual meeting but decided to meet in person considering the number of city staff members who may have to speak.
"We were all OK with those arrangements, so we just felt like that was easier for us," Cheney said.
The meeting will also be streamed live on the Frisco Television Network, which is shown live on the city’s website here or on the following channels:
• AT&T U-verse Channel 99;
• Grande Cable Channel 12 (with cable box), 97.12 (without cable box);
• Time Warner Cable Channel 16 (with cable box), 15.1 (without cable box); or
• Verizon FIOS Channel 37.
During the meeting, council will consider an ordinance amending the previously amended declaration of local disaster for public health emergency. The council amended the declaration on March 27 to formally adopt guidelines issued by Denton County as part of its stay-at-home order.
Cheney said the amendment to be considered would move Frisco more in “compliance with” the most recent order from Gov. Greg Abbott.
Also on the agenda is a public hearing on an ordinance that would allow breweries, distilleries and wineries to operate in the city. A separate public hearing is scheduled on a rezoning request for a mixed-use development on the northwest corner of Preston Road and Main Street.
