The Galveston City Council reinstated its civilian review board Tuesday. The board had been suspended since December over concerns about the board’s operations complying with city and state requirements.

The city council approved changes that will require board members to get the consent of officers to review their personnel files, prohibit board access to information designated confidential and make the board’s recommendations an open record.
