IslandDrumz

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

City Council encourages positive public comment and discussion during its meetings and reserves time during most Council meetings to hear such comments from either Scheduled or Unscheduled Visitors. However, the Texas Open Meetings Act places certain constraints on topics raised by such visitors where such discussions are not related to an item that has been placed on the Council's posted Agenda (Attorney General Opinion JC-0169). The most effective way for an individual to have their voice heard and receive feedback at a City Council meeting is to contact the City Secretary no later than Noon on the Wednesday prior to an upcoming Council meeting and request that their name be placed on a future agenda as a Scheduled Visitor. When you make this request, please state specifically the subject you wish to discuss. The City Secretary will place your name on the Agenda along with a specific description of the subject to be discussed. If you fail to provide a specific description of the subject of your requested discussion, then Council will have no choice but to refer the matter to City staff for response or defer any feedback or discussion on the matter until a future Council meeting when the subject can be placed on the Agenda. Comments should be limited to five (5) minutes and directed to the entire Council, not individual members. Engaging in verbal attacks or comments intended to insult, abuse, malign or slander any individual shall be cause for termination of speaking privileges and expulsion from Council Chambers.
