Mayor Johnson outlines policy priorities for Dallas City Council committees

DALLAS — Mayor Eric Johnson has sent a memo to the City Council outlining his legislative program for 2022.

In his annual State of the City Address last month, Mayor Johnson promised to release the priorities for each City Council committee. The mayor’s program includes 48 priority areas — six for each of the eight standing committees — that he wants the committee chairs to address in the year ahead.

“Focusing on these priorities will make our city stronger, safer, healthier, more vibrant, and more equitable,” Mayor Johnson said. “Together, we can ensure our dynamic and growing city reaches its full potential by getting back to basics at City Hall and laying the groundwork to build for our future.”

In Dallas, the mayor creates the committees and selects the chairs to help shape policies.
