City Council celebrates one year in its current form

Among the major hurdles, this council had to face since then was a water boil and of course, Hurricane Harvey. The mayor said this group of leaders is ready to continue to move the city forward.

CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - This week marks the one year anniversary for Corpus Christi's current City Council.

The year began in turmoil as former mayor Dan McQueen resigned after serving just 37 days. Mayor Joe McComb took over for him after winning a special election.

Among the major hurdles, this council had to face since then was a water boil and of course, Hurricane Harvey. The mayor said this group of leaders is ready to continue to move the city forward.

"We aren't being delayed by fussing and fighting among the council members, and everybody is running off in different directions. We're focused on getting some things done," McComb said. "Streets, water, wastewater."

A display was put up at City Hall showing what council has accomplished in the last year and the work they want to do in the next 12 months.
