A town hall meeting on March 25 started as a firing of questions from residents about the city manager’s contract, a topic legally closed to the public, and eventually led to one of the council members walking out of the meeting.
Discussion at the town hall meeting eventually turned to other topics including development in south Irving, Charter propositions for May’s election and the City’s proposed ethics policy, which the Council hasn’t taken up since December.
Attendees also told the Council that they wanted to see more jobs drawn into the city and other moves that would pump money into the City’s economy and thus lower taxes for residents.
“We don’t talk about the neighborhoods enough,” Councilman Gerald Farris said. “That’s why I got on council. We don’t talk about jobs and neighborhoods and that stuff enough.”
