HUTTO A declaration of City Coun- cil Place 5 vacancy was addressed by Hutto City Council during its April 15 meeting. Council declared former Council Member Patti Martinez’s Place 5 seat vacant following three consecutive council meeting absences. This is in line with section 3.06 of the city char- ter, which states if a council member fails to attend three consecutive council meetings, without being excused by council, City Council has to declare the seat vacant. City Council Places 2 and 5 are on the May 1 ballot, along with two Hutto ISD board of trustees spots.

Mayor Mike Snyder suggested Mike Arismendez, Hutto Economic Development Corporation board member, ll the seat. Snyder said he suggested Arismendez because of his experience on the EDC and his work on a legal government corporation. Arismendez previously served as a mayor of Shallowater, Texas, in Lubbock County. The charter requires council to ll the vacancy because the Place 5 seat needed to be lled for the remainder of the term since it ends in less than a year. Council voted 4-2, approving Arismendez to ll the Place 5 seat.

There is a vacant spot at Hutto City Hall where former Council Member Patti Martinez’s picture used to hang.
