Webster City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Wednesday, March 07, 2018

Webster City Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to appoint Police Chief Danny Presley to the newly-created position of assistant city manager.

Presley has served as assistant city manager in Texarkana, Texas.

City Manager Wayne Sabo recommended Presley's appointment to the position to serve as an eventual replacement when Sabo retires from his position at the city.

“If the desire is to promote from within, the process should begin now in order for a candidate to learn these facets of city government and no better place than Webster,” Sabo said.

Mayor Donna Rogers recused herself from the meeting at the time of the vote.

The city council voted unanimously during the meeting to approve the creation of the assistant city manager position.

The city council voted unanimously, with Rogers not present, to appoint Bo Rogers as police chief.

The city council took no action regarding the appointment of an assistant police chief.

The city council voted unanimously, with Rogers not present, to direct staff to bring back a contract for the creation of an opt-in electricity aggregation program for citizens for consideration at a future meeting.

The city currently is a member of the Texas Coalition for Affordable Power, an aggregate provider of electricity. While the organization is only allowed to serve political subdivisions and not residential customers, cities are permitted to create opt-in aggregation programs for local residents.

The city council voted unanimously, with Rogers not present, to award a $586,800 contract to Fused Industries, LC for the Jasmine Avenue Box Culvert Improvement Project.

The city council voted unanimously, with Rogers not present, to approve the minutes of the February 20 city council meeting, with corrections.
