Videos: Lewisville City Council Retreat - February 7th - 9th, 2013

Date 2013/2/10 1:00:00 | Topic: Local News, Notes and Events

The Lewisville City Council held its 2013 Annual Retreat Workshop Sessions over February 7th, 8th, and 9th this year at the Hilton Garden Inn, in Lewisville. The annual retreat sessions ran on Thursday night, Friday all day, and Saturday all day. Although no binding actions usually take place at retreat, the council members choose a variety of subjects for city staff to brief them on, and the agenda for retreats commonly precedes major actions that happen later in the year.

The public is invited to attend these meetings and listen in to the council members discussions of public agenda items. Typically there are only a few short periods of closed session discussions when the council must consult with an attorney or discuss property acquisitions.

The Lewisville Texan Journal was there to shoot video, which we hope to have posted within a day or two afterward. As we post each video, we'll link that subject to its YouTube video:
