  • Reappoint Mike Czarowitz, Elizabeth Stacy and Ted Thomas to the Library Board
  • Reappoint David O'Brien, III, Ronald Dyer, Mike Czarowitz and alternate members Linda Thornton, Glen Grayban and Jason Byers to the Zoning Board of Adjustment.

The city council voted 6-1, with Steve Rockey opposed, to update the appointment policy for boards, committees and commissions, with amendments.

The city council voted unanimously to authorize an agreement with Friendswood Independent School District for school resource officers.

The city council voted unanimously to reappoint Judge James Woltz and Alternate Judge Richard Barfield for the municipal court.
