Bryan City Council Delays Action on Proposed Charter Amendments

BRYAN The Bryan City Council delayed action Tuesday night on a number of proposed amendments to its city charter.

The amendments would prohibit city commissioners from appointing relatives to any office or position, prohibit a city official from using the prestige of the city on behalf of a political candidate, and prohibit a city official from influencing the vote on a city council matter that involves a campaign donor.

Mayor Jason Bienski has a brother on the Bryan Planning and Zoning Commission, and one-time Council Member Paul Madison has a son on the same commission.

Council members want to hear more from the city attorney on the legality of the proposals before taking any action.
