The current ByLaws for the New Braunfels Heritage Commission state in Article V; Section 1. The regular meeting of the Commission shall be held in March of each year, unless it is determined by the chairman that a specific meeting date and time must be changed due to the weather, lack of quorum or some other sufficient reason.

 

The recommended change is as follows:

 

The current ByLaws for the New Braunfels Heritage Commission state in Article V; Section 1.  A regular meeting of the Commission shall be held annually at a time agreed upon by the Commission, unless it is determined by the chairman that a specific meeting date and time must be changed due to the weather, lack of a quorum or some other sufficient reason.
