Your input on the Abilene Round Table is helping shape public policy! The City Commission has been considering the input provided in its deliberations. The most recent action resulted in a change to the City's fireworks regulations. You can read more about it and other results on the outcome tab of each topic on the Abilene Round Table. There's still time to contribute a visitor plan for 2019, and stay tuned for more opportunities to help your City make important decisions that affect everyone.
