Several board members said Thursday they would discuss the Financial Resource Group’s report during the special meeting today after finally receiving the completed report. District 1 board member Bryn Dodd said it would give the board an opportunity to discuss the report’s impact on the proposed budget before making a final vote on the budget Sept. 26. The first agenda posted Friday for the special meeting only showed the board would meet for a public hearing on the ad valorem tax rate increase.
The four officers spent six days in the area, mostly helping patrol, focusing their efforts in Fort Bend County and the western part of Harris County. “We looked at it as a once in a career opportunity, you know, getting to patrol somewhere else in a different neck of the woods I guess you could say,” Lacey said. For both Lacey and Meise, who talked to media Wednesday about the experience, it was an honor to be a part of the relief efforts.
After that, it was business as usual as commissioners approved nearly every item on the agenda unanimously. Several items were approved for elections in November, including the approval for a joint resolution for holding and operating special elections for the Ector County Independent School District, the Ector County Assistance District and the Constitutional Amendments election. Elections Administrator Lisa Sertuche said there will be seven constitutional amendments on the ballot this November.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
