Those of you that follow council meetings know that they usually are a study session in the afternoon followed by a regular meeting in the evening. Both of these are public meetings and they get noticed as such.
Tuesday’s meeting will be a break from that pattern, but not unprecedented. It will be a mayor and council retreat. It won’t be nearly as much fun as it sounds. We’ve had several of these over the past few years, particularly under the leadership of City Manager Michael Ortega.
Age divisions are 9-12 and 13-15. Registration is underway through Feb. 18, and teams must register in person at the Clements Center. The cost is $10 per team (cash only), and awards will be given for first and second place teams.
