New Councilmember sworn-in

March 8, 2012 by Katie Martinez

Esta Austin, a long-time resident of Willow Park, was sworn-in by Mayor Pro-Tem Gene Martin as an interim Councilmember in Place 4.

Austin's appointment fills the vacancy created by the resignation of Councilman Mark Hickerson on Feb. 17.

Martin said Hickerson's departure was a result of time constraints. He had been a councilmember for three years and a member of the Planning and Zoning Commitee for two years before that.

Austin's appointment will carry the council to the May 12 elections, when voters will decide on either Brian Thornburg or Daniel Stalling to be the new councilmember in Place 4.
