On March 16, 2020, Governor Greg Abbott granted a request by the Texas Attorney General to waive certain requirements of the Texas Open Meetings Act to reduce face-to-face contact relating to government meetings while maintaining government transparency during government meetings in accordance with Section 418.016 of the Texas Government Code. Governor Abbott suspended various statutory provisions requiring government officials and members of the public to be physically present at a specified meeting location. On October 7, 2020, Governor Greg Abbott issued Executive Order GA-32 which directs that all persons not otherwise excepted by the order shall not be in groups larger than ten and shall maintain six feet of social distancing from those not in their group.
The public may make comments by signing up to speak by no later than Tuesday October 20, 2020 at 8 a.m. at: https://appearancerequest.harriscountytx.gov/. Members of the public who choose to attend the Public Hearing in person may be asked to wait for their turn to address Commissioners Court in an alternate location within the Harris County Administration Building to allow for social distancing in accordance with the Governor’s executive orders. Members of the public are still entitled to participate and address governmental bodies during any telephonic or video conference meeting. If you choose to participate in the Public Hearing virtually or if you sign up to speak for the portion of the special meeting that will be held virtually, you will be placed in a queue and will receive a phone call when it is your time to speak.
