The regular meeting of the
Wylie City Council got off to
a rocky start Tuesday night,
February 24 as Mayor Chuck
Trimble announced that the
second item on the agenda
had been withdrawn at the re-
quest of attorney Richard
Seward, the person that had
originally requested that it be
placed on the agenda.
The item called for setting of
recall election for the recall of
Councilwoman Sandra
Donovan to be held April 4.
Councilman Kent Crane
wanted to keep the item on
the agenda and went so far as
to make a motion that was se-
cond by Joe Fulgham.
However Mayor Trimble
pointed out again that the
item had been withdrawn at
the request of Seward and he
could not entertain a motion
on the item or ask for a coun-
cil vote.
City Manager Gus Pappas
went into a great length
describing the history, con-
struction, maintenance,
course, and future of J.W.
Akin lane. The road will be
improved in the future to ac-
comodate the traffic flow bet-
ween Stone Rd. (FM 544) and
Hwy. 78. With councils ap-
proval, city staff will seek the
dedications of the right-of-
way along Akin Lane.
City Council approved and
established a Finance
Authority, a corporation
which will act in behalf to the
city to acquire materials and
financing for projects and
equipment. As a private
authority they are able to
negotiate loans at lower in-
terest rates and contractual
terms that would be more ad-
vantageous to the city than
what is permited under
municiple guidelines. The Ci-
ty Manager, Finance Director
and Public Works Director
will act as the Board of Direc-
tors and the city council will
act as the incorporators and
the City Secretary will act as
the serving agent. The
Finance Authority can act on-
ly with the consent of city
council.
Several subdivisions made
requests for changes in-
cluding, the re-zoning of a
portion of the Westgate addi-
tion from townhomes to
single family 3, approval of
the Wyndham Estates Plann-
ed Development, construc-
tion plans for Newport Har-
bor, and the preliminary plat
for Woodlake Village was
given.
Council approved an or-
dinance that gives Wylie con-
trol over development within
their ETJ that is subject to
flooding.
The City will enter into a
temporary lease agreement
with the developer of Quail
Hollow allowing the city to
use a portion of undeveloped
land for temporary sports
fields. As the developer needs
the land the sports fields will
be moved to other locations.
This will temporarily relieve
the amount of use at City
Park fields.
The Parks Development will
purchase four used pick-up
trucks with councils ap-
proval. New trucks were
budgeted but the money will
be stretched further and pro-
vide more vehicles if used
trucks are purchased instead.
City Financial Officer
James Johnson presented to
council the city's first inven-
tory supply bid. Council ap-
proved that the companies
Bowles and Edens, North
Texas Supply, Rockwell, Day
Star Sales, Trans-Tex, and
Texas Meter and Sewer be
awarded bids to supply public
works. The total expenditure
is $23,869.86.
A workshop was called for
March 17, 1987 to discuss the
lease settlement on the
sanitary landfill with B.F.I.
Besides council discussion it
will be a public hearing
A resident who uses the
alley between Dogwood and
Briarwood requested that the
city pay for car repairs to his
Z-28. Damage occured when
the car was stopped by a nine
inch deep pothole in the alley
The pothole was filled with
water and the alley in general
has drainage problems that
disguise dangerous potholes.
Council took no action.
