Host Quarterly open forums for discussion with the citizens of the town so we can all connect better and face to face with YOUR issues and concerns.
Allow some questions during a council meeting by ceding the floor to a citizen during discussion of a topic
Read any citizen comments into record during the meetings, instead of just shoving them into a binder.
When the town puts out an official survey, include "none of the above" so you are not forced to choose the lesser of 4 evils... don't limit how many choices you can make. Make sure the surveys are completely unbiased and that more people participate.
Video Recording of every meeting to be placed on the website for public consumption, one resident suggested Facebook Live broadcasts... I like that!

Have the agenda and council packets published a minimum of 1 week before the meeting to give citizens time to comment and council members time gather input
If a zoning change request is made, publicly post a sign on the property (similar to Argyle) noting a change request has been made

Look at our Tax exemptions and give some real relief to the people who need it.
Denton County has reduced their tax rate 4 of the past 5 years, why haven't we? Lets make that change!
