Mayors back out of proposal

July 23, 2010 by Dominic Genetti

In an e-mail to Willow Park Mayor Ken Hawkins, the mayors of the cities of East Parker County and the media, Hudson Oaks Mayor Pat Deen is officially backing his city out of any discussions to merge Aledo, Hudson Oaks, Willow Park and the Annettas.

"The primary reason is the concern for the impact of property taxes, when we already have exceptional services provided to our residents without the need for property taxes," Deen said in his e-mail.

Following the Aledo City Council meeting Thursday night, Aledo Mayor Kit Marshall said she will not partake in any regional meetings that involve the merging of the six cities.

Hawkins said he will still advocate and lobby for his proposal.
