Members of the Houston City Council took two votes during a closed session last week following its regular meeting.
The board authorized sending Lane Haley to a police academy. The city will pay the expense and he’ll commit to remain employed at Houston for a set period. He will also be paid $15 per hour while attending. The vote was 5-0 (with alderwoman Sheila Walker out of town)
The board in a 4-0 vote opposed International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers 753 in representing the City of Houston. (Alderman Kevin Stilley abstaining and Walker absent).
