Greetings from the Mayor’s office: This past week I had the opportunity to attend the Texas Municipal League’s Conference for newly elected mayors. It was held in Waco and I certainly came back with some valuable information.

My Monday meetings with the public have been going well and I appreciate all those who have taken their time to visit with me at City Hall. Keep in mind I am here every Monday afternoon, except holidays, from 1:30-3 p.m. I have heard many ideas and some concerns and will take a hard look at all of these. Two […]
