Bowie Council to hear written complaint against city manager

The Bowie City Council will convene into an executive session during its Monday night meeting to consider a written complaint made by Tawni Jones against City Manager Bert Cunningham.
This meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the council chambers.
Jones, who operates a local restaurant, has been at odds with the city for more than a year battling over various code violations for her properties. She also is a candidate in the Nov. 6 council election.
The council will appoint a person to fill the vacancy in the precinct two-south ward and accept the resignation of former Councilor Machelle Mills from that post. She submitted her resignation on Sept. 21.
Three people have filed to be considered for the remaining one year unexpired term: Jason Love, Jason Johnson and Donna Ashley. The new councilor will be sworn in after the vote.
The 2018 tax roll will be presented, along with the second reading of the 2017-18 budget amendment.

A second executive session was added late Friday. It lists consultation with attorney on claim related to water customers in the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction.
