Galveston State of the City Address is June 12 at Galveston College

Galveston Mayor Jim Yarbrough and City Manager Brian Maxwell will present a “State of the City” event Tuesday, June 12.

The public is invited to the event, which will be hosted by the Galveston Roundtable of Foundations in the Seibel Wing of the Cheney Student Center at Galveston College.

Yarbrough said he appreciates the opportunity to present updates on city services, projects underway and plans for the future.

“Brian Maxwell and I are grateful to the Roundtable of Foundations for hosting this event,” he said. “We think Galvestonians will be impressed by all that’s being done to keep our Island moving forward, and we look forward to sharing it with them.”

The Roundtable of Foundations is a network of staff and board members representing numerous Galveston charitable foundations. The group has met quarterly over the past decade to discuss the Island’s needs, opportunities for philanthropic support and issues on the horizon.

State of the City attendees will be encouraged to ask questions of the mayor and city manager during the program, or write them down and submit by mail or email.

In addition to questions for the mayor and city manager, the mayor has asked Galvestonians to respond to a question of his own: “What would your priorities be if you were mayor?”

Light refreshments will be served at 5:30 p.m., and the program will begin at 6 p.m.

Free parking will be available in the Galveston College parking lot at 39th Street and Avenue Q.
