City Appraisal District Board Representative Appointed

City of Sulphur Springs

Of the two appointments Sulphur Springs City Council was asked to consider appointing, only one received approval; the other was tabled at the Dec. 3 City Council meeting.

City Secretary Gale Roberts recommended Bill Watts to serve another term on the Hopkins County Appraisal District Board of Directors. Watts has served on the board since 2010. Before Watts, Michael Barrett served on HCCAD Board.

Roberts said she contacted Watts, who said he would be willing to serve another 2 years on the appraisal district board.

The city council approved Resolution No. 1186, appointing Watts to the position.

The City Council was also asked to consider appointing a person to fill a Planning and Zoning Commission opening.

Sulphur Springs Community Development Director Tory Niewiadomski explained that one P&Z commissioner felt the need to step down from the board due to personal reasons. The board is seeking a replacement to be appointed as soon as possible to fill that seat on the commission.

Councilman John Sellers asked about names that’d been talked about at a previous retreat.

Roberts reported four individuals had previously been discussed as potential options. However, to her knowledge none of them had been contacted regarding potential willingness to serve on the commission.

Sellers recommended tabling the appointment until they had time to confer and ask people if they’d be willing to serve. The council unanimously agreed, tabling the item until a future meeting.
