City Hall changes coming this week
Mayor Jo Matherne will say good-bye to the Brownsville City Board Tuesday night. Historically the outgoing mayor opens the meeting and then the new mayor is sworn in and presides over the session. The city board holds its regular monthly meeting tomorrow night.
Like her predecessor, Mayor Webb Banks, Matherne leaves Brownsville with strong finances. Matherne’s administration incurred no debt and stacked up more cash in the city’s hefty savings account. She also started Brownsville On The Move that included zoning and planning overhauls, the near-completed Tamm Park and renovations east of the square.
Mayor-Elect Bill Rawls will also inherit a balanced 2014-2015 budget passed just last month by the City Board.
The Board meets Tuesday at 5:30p.m.
