Georgetown City Council approved a resolution July 10 to not have a proposed November charter election that could have changed the city’s elections from May to November. The council voted 4–3 with council members Tommy Gonzalez, Bill Sattler and Troy Hellman voting against.
At a June 27 special meeting, City Council voted to not send the proposed amendment of the city charter to voters. In May, the city’s charter review committee recommended elections not be changed from May to November, according to the resolution.
Acting City Attorney Bridget Chapman said the City Council could still call a charter election for May or November of next year if the council deems it necessary.
