The Tyler City Council met in special session to address two agenda items. City Administrator Robert Wolfington explained that the first agenda item was to satisfy a state require­ment.
“Starting last year the state started to require that each year cities adopt their polling location,” Wolfington said. “We did not do that this year yet, so we will need to pass a resolution designating 138 E. Bradley Street [Tyler Legion Hall] as the polling location for the city voting jurisdiction for the year 2019. We are required to do it regardless of wheth­er we have an election or not.”
