Carroll resigns from Katy City Council

Posted

Katy City Council Member Frank Carroll III who represented Ward A confirmed today that he has resigned from the city’s governing body due to a family issue.

“Yes, I resigned effective today,” Carroll said. “We are buying the family farm from the estate of (my wife, April Carroll’s) grandfather, who passed away suddenly from cancer.”

Carroll had said earlier this year that a family issue would likely cause him to move out of the city and that he would resign when the details of that situation were finalized.

Carroll was unanimously appointed to his seat in September 2018 after former Council Member J. Gary Jones resigned due to a private matter. Carroll was then reelected in May of 2019 when he ran unopposed for reelection. Prior to serving on council, he was a member of the Katy Board of Adjustment, according to the city’s website.

Mayor Bill Hastings will need to nominate someone to fill Carroll’s seat on the council and that nominee will then need to be confirmed by the remaining council members prior to being sworn in. It is unknown when such a nomination may occur.

Katy City Council is set to meet Nov. 17 to canvass the results of the city’s Nov. 3 elections in a special meeting for that purpose. The regular city council meeting scheduled for Nov. 23 has been cancelled due to the Thanksgiving holiday and the next regular city council meeting is set for Dec. 14. 

Carroll’s wife was born and raised in Hempstead and Carroll said he hopes to continue to serve the Waller County community in some form now that the family has moved outside of city limits.

“While I will no longer be in the City of Katy, we will still be living in Waller County, and I look forward to the new opportunities ahead to serve the residents of this great county,” Carroll said.
