The City of McAllen recently created two tutorial videos on the process for individuals to follow to be able to sign up to make public comments at McAllen City Commission meetings.  The videos, one in English and one in Spanish, gives information on how to sign up in person or via Zoom, whether the comments are related to a specific agenda item or just general comments, and important deadlines to meet when submitting the appropriate request form.  

“It is important that individuals wishing to speak before the McAllen City Commission are  aware of the process to be able to successfully sign up to make those comments,” said McAllen City Manager Roel “Roy” Rodriguez, P.E.  “This tutorial video, available in English and Spanish, will be posted not only on the City of McAllen You Tube, our MCN 1300 channel, but also, will be on our website so that anyone will have a chance to review the video as necessary.”

According to City Secretary Perla Lara, different rules govern those wishing to make remarks on any topic from those that are specific to an item on a McAllen City Commission Meeting Agenda.  Additionally, because of COVID-19 social distancing guidelines in place, those wishing to make comments via Zoom or telephone may do so, as well, but must also sign up following the correct process.

“If anyone has any questions, they can always contact the McAllen City Secretary’s Office at 681-1025 or via email at plara@mcallen.net,” concluded Lara.
