WP Mayor sets "procedures" to citizen comments

April 29, 2010 by Dominic Genetti

Ken Hawkins had a lot to say Monday.

In the late afternoon the Willow Park Mayor addressed his decision to remove citizen comments from the agenda of city council meetings, but by Monday evening had come up with a solution to give what he called the correct procedure.

For the past two months, March and April, Hawkins used his mayoral power to remove the citizen comment portion of the city council agenda. The reason, he said, was because citizens were not addressing current agenda items.

Mayor says there's not enough money for raises

April 19, 2010 by Dominic Genetti

Willow Park city employees won't be getting a pay raise this fiscal year and they shouldn't expect more money by the time the next one ends too.

Mayor Ken Hawkins said that with the projects the city has planned in the coming years and a possible population boom in three to five years, there's just not enough to increase the salaries of city workers.

However, he assures that as the private sector of the city grows and improves, the public sector will follow.
