Meeting agendas are posted at least three days prior to the event. For more information concerning a specific agenda item, call (254) 750-5653.

Persons with disabilities who plan to attend these meetings and who may need auxiliary aids or services should contact the MPO at (254) 750-5653 at least 24 hours in advance so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

POLICY BOARD MEMBERS:

The next MPO Policy Board meeting will be in person at the South Waco Community Center to accommodate physical distancing. 

On June 20, 2021, Governor Abbot’s office approved a request by the Office of the Attorney General to lift the suspension of certain provisions of the Texas Open Meetings Act previously required by emergency orders related to the COVID-19 pandemic effective September 1, 2021. This means that as of September 1, 2021, Waco MPO Policy Board meetings must be conducted in full compliance with the Open Meetings Act, and a quorum of the board must be physically present to conduct the meeting.

The meeting room will be arranged for physical distancing of Board members, staff, and the public. If you are concerned about attending in-person meetings, or if your employer has travel restrictions in place, please contact MPO staff by emailing mpo@wacotx.gov for staff assistance. We will do our best to accommodate a limited number of Board members and partner agency staff so that they may participate virtually.
