Amarillo, TX - Amarillo city commissioners have set up a time and date to talk with members of the community about issues with payday lending.
This community-wide meeting is to help community members learn more about payday lending and title loans.
This workshop is to help council members work with the community members in an effort to consider a model ordinance that will support fair, reasonable interest and fee charges for payday, auto title loans and other small dollar loans.
Officials from Texas Appleseed will be at the workshop to provide insight on their organization's efforts. And also, a Dallas city council member will share what they have faced in their city with payday lending.
The workshop will be Monday at 5:30 p.m. at the Amarillo Civic Center in the Heritage Ballroom.
Members of the community are invited to ask questions and share information.
