WOODSBORO – The Woodsboro City Council Tuesday night, May 6, interviewed candidates in closed session for the town’s police chief position.

However, after three interviews, the council took no action on hiring someone.

The police chief position became vacant when former Police Chief Joseph Roberts resigned abruptly on Jan. 30. Roberts gave no reason for his resignation.

The council also interviewed candidates for workers and a clerk for the municipal court, in closed sessions.

In open session, the council hired Rene Ramirez and Bryan Gonzales as city workers, and Raquel Flores as the city’s municipal clerk.

Former municipal clerk Debbie LaPore resigned to accept another position.

The council also approved the resignation letter of William Meacham, a city worker.

In other business, the council approved a resolution affirming review of the Woodsboro Planning Study and using it as a guide for future policy decisions. The planning study was prepared by GrantWorks Inc. and is required by the Texas Department of Agriculture.

The study was paid for by a Texas Community Development Block Grant.

The council also approved having its city attorney draw up an ordinance regulating recreational vehicle parks. One provision would be a $150 deposit per lot.

The council also approved the purchase of 150 tons of caliche at $28.50 a ton from Martin Marietta.

The council also approved the $1,650 purchase of a check valve assembly for the lift station from PEECO.
