Davis said she is proud of the many accomplishments made by the Board during her term. “We established a finance committee, which I served on, which provided some insight, more detailed insight anyway, into the finances before we went live in our Aldermen meetings,” said Davis.
The Board also oversaw the hiring of a new City Administrator and began plans for a new wastewater treatment plant. Davis decided to step down decided to step down because of personal positions that conflicted with her leadership role.
“It wasn’t that I didn’t enjoy working with that group of people at all. They were wonderful; we worked well together. We didn’t always agree, but we worked out our issues. And we worked really well in establishing a capital plan that, as far as I know, had never been established in Odessa. So I’m going to miss it.”
A replacement for Davis has not been named, but Mayor Justin Murry reports the announcement should be made at the Board meeting on November 11th.
