Sherman residents have the opportunity to hear about three proposed ordinances at the upcoming meeting of the Sherman City Council inside the council’s chambers at City Hall, 200 W. Mulberry St. The regular meeting is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. Monday.


The council is reconsidering a motion to appoint representatives from Sherman to the Joint Airport Zoning Board. The Board is a regional authority that will work to protect the North Texas Regional Airport - Perrin Field’s interests. The council tabled the ordinance at its July 15 meeting "to give themselves more time to study the issue," according to the city’s agenda for the upcoming meeting.


The ordinance currently under the Council’s consideration would repeal the previously proposed ordinance entirely and substitute a new one. The new ordinance would allow the Council to appoint two members to represent Sherman’s interests to the Airport Zoning Board. Sherman residents will have an opportunity to ask councilors questions and give their thoughts on the matter during a public hearing of the ordinance before the Council votes to reject or adopt it.


The Council is also scheduled to confirm the date of Election Day for the upcoming city and county election as Nov. 5 after a public hearing. A last ordinance due for public debate and consideration at the meeting would provide permanent stop signs at the intersection of McLain Drive and Woods Street in the city.


The council also plans to discuss and vote on resolutions that confirm the city’s agreement with Grayson County to provide fire protection and ambulance services in some unincorporated parts of the county.
