Join the SolutionsNet Community
TML began the SolutionsNet listserv a few years ago to make it easy for you to access our most valuable resource-the experience and expertise of other member city officials. The listserv membership is free to all member cities; all you have to do is complete a short online registration.
Once a member, you have access to archived discussion threads and documents. Most importantly, you can post questions and respond to requests from other city officials. By participating in SolutionsNet, you aren't only solving problems, but you are building a catalog of resources for yourself and others to access.
And participating doesn't mean that you have to accept a flood of emails into your email inbox. The listserv allows you to customize what and how much information you receive.
To become a part of the SolutionsNet community, visit the SolutionsNet page of the TML website.
Legal Q&A Index
In each issue of Texas Town & City magazine, a TML attorney addresses common or emerging legal topics in the Legal Q & A feature. An index of this popular feature can be accessed online in the Legal Research section of the TML website. If the index doesn't shed light on a question you have, TML member city officials can always contact the TML Legal Department for help. For information on contacting a TML attorney and to explore other online legal resources, go to the Ask a TML Attorney page on the TML website.
