Jacob Balderas

Rosenberg city councilman Jacob Balderas said he was among those who were confused by the wording of an agenda item last Tuesday.

The agenda called for the council to meet in secret session to discuss “security devices” associated with the School Resource Officer program.

Here’s what the agenda item stated: “Hold Executive Session to consult with City Attorney to seek or receive legal advice related to pending litigation pursuant to Section 551.071 of the Texas Government Code; deliberation regarding security devices related to Interlocal Agreement with Lamar Consolidated Independent School pursuant to Section 551.076 of the Texas Government Code.”

Balderas said he later found out the agenda item should have only said “security.”

The council voted unanimously to cancel its school resource officer contract with Lamar Consolidated ISD.
