The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority accepted the resignation of Board Member Jay Crossley at the March 29 meeting.

The Mobility Authority is a governing body on transportation in Travis and Williamson counties. Both counties appoint three members to the board, and the board chair is selected by the Texas Governor.

Crossley was appointed in Februrary 2022 and served as an appointee from Travis County Commissioners Court. Crossley brought experience to the position as the founder and executive director of Farm&City, which works with communities to develop safer and more sustainable transportation growth strategies, according to a press release.

“Jay brought a very important perspective, and his focus on safety and a lot of the issues that go with what we do was very, very valuable,” Mobility Authority Chair Bobby Jenkins said. “It was a pleasure to get to know him and absolutely a pleasure to have the opportunity to get to work with him.”

The Travis County Commissioners Court appointed Amy Pattillo to serve as an interim upon Crossley’s departure March 28, but this action has not been made official by the Mobility Authority as of March 29. Pattillo is a technical advisor to the Mobility Authority of the MoPac South project and serves on the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization’s Transportation Policy Board.

“She brings the whole package of knowledge on transportation issues,” Precinct 2 Commissioner Brigid Shea said at the March 28 Travis County Commissioners Court meeting.

Pattillo will serve as the interim appointee until the Commissioners Court finds a replacement, Shea said. The search for a permanent replacement will begin April 4, said Hector Nieto, public information officer with Travis County Commissioners Court.
