The League City City Council will discuss an ordinance regarding the creation of a Community Standards Review Committee to review library materials during its regular meeting Feb. 14.

The ordinance up for discussion is the result of a contentious resolution, which spurred community backlash during public comment and was passed by the City Council 4-3 on Dec. 6, Community Impact previously reported.

The proposed committee would consist of three members from the Library Board and four additional members appointed by the mayor and confirmed by City Council. All seven members must be League City residents for at least a year and will serve two-year staggered terms, according to the agenda item data sheet.

League City's city attorney or his designee will also be required to attend all meetings, and no material can be reviewed under the proposed Library Materials Challenge Policy more than once within 12 months.

Library materials in any medium that contain obscenity, or feature pedophilia, incest, rape or bondage, or graphically discuss or depict any type of sex or nudity or related topics where the intended audience is below the age of 10 are not permitted to be placed in the sections of League City's library facilities intended for minors, according to the proposed policy.

Materials can be challenged and would then reviewed by the proposed committee. If the challenge is sustained, then the material would be moved to an adult section of the library.

Over 50 people spoke out against the original resolution, and now over a dozen people have responded to a Facebook event post to protest the ordinance.

No information was present in the agenda regarding what will happen to Helen Hall Library's current reconsideration process.
