Public Comment is your opportunity to address your City of Hutto elected officials directly about issues that are important to you and your community. Whether you comment online, address City Council in-person, or choose to submit a comment virtually, your voice is important and will be heard. Anyone can comment.
I've made an effort to speak multiple times at the podium during council meetings about agenda items and issues I care about as a Hutto citizen. Utilizing these opportunities creates a dialogue and that's the only way our elected officials will know what truly matters in the heart of their constituency. By making public comment and then continuing that dialogue outside of council meetings, I began to see movement on the issues that are important to me. There is a reason why the idiom "the squeaky wheel gets the grease" exists! I hope to see or hear from you this Thursday evening!
