I’ve come to sure realization based on accidental experimentation. If I don’t do my council recap video as soon as I get home from a council meeting, it ain’t getting done. I apologize for not getting the last two videos out, but as I will not be able to record tomorrow’s video as soon as I get home, I preface this to say it may not get done, but I will diligently try to record it the following day.

You can sign up online to speak at council meetings in person or via Zoom online at this link up to 15 minutes before the scheduled meeting, which is typically at the 7:00 Regular Meeting. You may alternatively share your thoughts by emailing the council members any time at our email addresses here, or by 4:00 PM the day of the meeting at The council meeting will be livestreamed on and on the City of Plano Facebook page.
