The City Council approved an ordinance to hold a special election on Saturday, May 1 to submit proposed changes to the City Charter to MCTX voters. Polling locations for both Fort Bend and Harris counties will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The proposed changes to the Charter came out of the 2020 Charter Review Commission. Five City residents worked for six months, issuing a final report on Dec. 21, 2020. The last changes to the Charter occurred about four years ago.
Missouri City residents in Fort Bend and Harris counties will be able to vote for or against the following propositions on the May 1 ballot:
