GLENN HEIGHTS - The governing body of the City of Glenn Heights has announced it will hold a Town Hall meeting Feb. 15.
The meeting is set for 7 p.m. at Shields Elementary, at 205 W. Ovilla Road.
The agenda calls for an open discussion, or question and answer period. The panel suggests the following items for the discussion:
n Utilities - Water (irrigation meters, master meter ordinance, electronic meters, rates, wholesale water) and sewer (rates, TRA Red Oak Plant)
n Public Works (organization, roads, sidewalks, meter reading, parks, Right-of-way maintenance, building inspections, animal control)
