If you have an opinion, contact your city councilperson. Unlike the Texas Transportation Committee, the council does publish its agenda in advance, so people will know what will be considered. The law requires it. However, the TTC decides issues such as toll roads without letting the public know what it plans to vote on. Next time you see our newly-appointed local member of the TTC, Hope Andrete, ask her why TTC operates behind so despicable a veil of secrecy.
