The Slater City Council accepted two resignations at this Tuesday’s meeting. Click to hear KMZU’s Sarah Scott speak wtih Mayor Stephen Allegri:
The resignations came from City Attorney Patt Cronan and City Council member Brownell Bryant.
Bryant has been in office more than 25 years. ”We’re really going to miss her, but her family has moved to Texas, and that’s where she’s going to move,” said Allegri, ”She’s been instrumental in many of the programs we’ve put together here. Most recently the Bryant Project in East Slater, which was a sidewalk, storm sewer, curb and guttering project. Which was named after her, because she kind of led the charge on that project.”
Bryant’s resignation will take effect August 1st. Allegri will appoint a person to take over her chair. If the Council approves the decision, that person will sit on Council until the next election.
Attorney Pat Cronan has been with with Slater about 30 years. ”He is going to retire in December. That’s when his law license is up, and he didn’t feel like he wanted to renew it. So he is going to resign. And he’ll be with us until December. And he’s going to work with us on finding a replacement,” said Allegri, “So he’ll be sorely missed.”
Bids to tear down three substandard houses went to Andrew Ratliff for $13,500. Council also discussed a tractor pull coming up August 3rd and a model airplane fly-in in September.
