In a special meeting Saturday afternoon, the Willow Park City Council voted to take further steps towards both a new wastewater plant and an interim city administrator.
Pending engineer approval, the city will make an offer on a parcel of land just east of the existing site and north of the Clear Fork of the Trinity River. Mayor Pro Tem Gene Martin said a few facts about the land’s flood status were still unknown and that city staff was working to finish.
Council member Brian Thornburg said the location is attractive because it sits over the force main line for the existing plant.
City leaders also authorized Mayor Richard Neverdousky to negotiate a contract with Bobby Roundtree to serve in a consultant role as the interim city administrator. If hired, Roundtree will replace outgoing City Administrator Matt Shaffstall, who resigned March 29.
