PUB to Hold Workshop Monday on Brownsville-Matamoros Weir and Reservoir Project

The Brownsville Public Utilities Board will hear a status report on the Brownsville-Matamoros Weir and Reservoir Project at a 5 p.m. workshop.

The workshop will be held at the PUB Administration building, and the board’s regular meeting will follow at 5:30 p.m.

In October, the City Commission unanimously passed a resolution supporting the weir project as an option to the proposed border fence. The Commission suggested that it would meet the requirements of the Secure Fence Act of 2006.

Other agenda items of interest include:

Discussion and approval to update a portion of the Brownsville Public Utilities Board Electric, Water, and Wastewater Service Policy, General Rules and Regulations. –J. Bruciak

I noticed that BPUB sends out agenda to various media outlets.

I am curious why Channel 23 and the local Spanish stations are not included in that list.

Maybe someone from BPUB could shed light into this.

Where do you see that?

Generally, it's up to the media entity to request that they be placed on the distribution list. However, PUB officials should be proactive in adding media to their list.

If media doesn't care about receiving an agenda, or isn't making a diligent effort to acquire ALL public entity agendas, then they're not practicing good journalism.

It is on the last page of the agenda. It is under Chairman Villarreal's signature if I remember correctly.

You are right on both the journalism and BPUB part. Maybe Channel 23 gets the agendas the way you do, or are not specifically on the agenda, or maybe they get it from you site.
