Plainview City Council members discussed a new roof for the civic center at yesterday’s work session.

Formal approval will be determined at Tuesday night’s council meeting. A closed meeting will be held Tuesday for the annual review of City Manager Jeffrey Snyder, who is completing his first contract year in that position.
