GRAYSON -- Grayson Councilman David Schroder who has served as mayor pro-tem, has resigned effective Midnight last night because of his move outside of the city limits.
"This happened so quick . . . it was a tough decision to leave," said Schroder, who has served in Post 1 for several years. He has acted as the city's coordinator for the inmate trash pick-up crews.
Schroder, who moved his family out of Grayson over the weekend, said he was leaving the Council "in good hands."
"I'll just be on the other side of the table now," he said, "but I do hope you keep the sign ordinance going. You know, we work for free."
Following Schroder's announcement at the council meeting Monday night, Allison Rooks was elected by the panel to replace Schroder as mayor pro-tem.
Mayor Jim Hinkle said the Council at some point would appoint someone to fill Schroder's unexpired term.
In other business, the Council:
... Announced the millage rate public hearings for July 2 (8:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.) and July 9 (6 p.m.)
... Annexed and rezoned 1.2 acres in the Grayson Overlay District to allow for the construction of a jewelry store. The request for the M-1 (light industrial) zoning came from Joe Kalish.
... Announced the float winners at the recent Grayson Day parade: Mayor's Choice Award, Parrot Productions; Best Non-Commercial: Grayson United Methodist Church; Best Commercial: Grayson Orthodontics.
