Dear editor,

Last Thursday night I was out of town and was not able to attend the called session of the City Council meeting.

I understand, from talking to people, that it was another nearly four hour pony show that the mayor put in place.

I understand that over three hours of this meeting was in executive session.

If the Mayor and City Administrator would look in the TML rule book I truly believe that the things going on behind closed doors are against the rules.

I really don’t feel like they ever look in the book.

I wished that the Mayor would take in consideration the people who are connected to our City.

I have noticed in the long meetings that it appears to me that the 88-year-old City Councilman is worn out.

I can see the fatigue on his face.

What I have to say to the Mayor is shame...shame..shame on you.

AUSTIN — Gov. Greg Abbott and members of Lone Star State’s congressional delegation last week signed a letter seeking $18.7 billion in Texas-specific Hurricane Harvey relief and recovery funding in the next federal supplemental appropriations bill.
Meanwhile, the Texas Department of Emergency Management Commission is working with county judges and mayors to secure funding and resources requested by those local officials. 
John Sharp, who heads the commission, testified along with other state officials before the Texas House Appropriations Committee at a meeting in Houston last week examining recovery costs. In his testimony, Sharp urged officials in Harris County and other hurricane-stricken counties to submit the FEMA-required Request for Public Assistance forms by Oct. 31. 
Sharp speculated that the $140 billion early estimate of Hurricane Harvey recovery costs would be turn out to be low.
