Council extends city manager interim status

by | Nov 17, 2021 | Latest

Wylie City Council amended a parking ordinance and extended the city manager’s interim status in a special meeting held Nov. 15.

During the citizen input portion of the meeting, resident Scott Coleman spoke about the wastewater plant that has been proposed in the Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) of Parker and Murphy.

Coleman said the Murphy City Council and residents of Parker and Murphy are contesting the installation and urged council to join them in opposition. According to Coleman, the wastewater plant will dump thousands of gallons of wastewater into Maxwell Creek, which flows into Muddy Creek in Wylie.

After reconvening from an executive session where council discussed the employment evaluation and appointment duties of the Interim City Manager Brent Parker, council decided to extend Parker’s interim status for the remainder of the fiscal year.

In other business, council passed an ordinance canvassing the returns of the Nov. 2 Bond Election.

Council also passed an ordinance amendment prohibiting parking, stopping and standing in the Cimmarron Estates Subdivision from7 – 9 a.m. and 3 – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday without a valid resident or guest parking permit. Additionally, the ordinance prohibits blocking crosswalks or private driveways with vehicles and student drop-off or pick-up for non-designated area residents.
