Dyson took on the role of mayor in November 2018, when he was the only candidate running to replace previous Mayor Roxanne McKee, who was not seeking re-election, according to the city’s website. Dyson previously served as a City Council member from 2015-18.
“It is not a decision I make lightly because I love this community,” Dyson wrote in a Nov. 9 memo included in the Nov. 17 City Council meeting agenda. “There has been no greater honor for me personally than to have served our community the last six years as council member and mayor.”
Dyson said he believes his increasingly demanding professional life compromises his ability to serve the city the way it needs, according to the memo. Dyson currently serves as the CEO of Infinity Water Solutions, which manages oilfield flowback and produces water with emphasis on recycling and reuse.
“I am incredibly proud of our community’s accomplishments and know we have such a bright future; together, we have accomplished so much,” Dyson said in the memo. “I want to thank our community, the incredibly talented city staff and everyone else that has put Rollingwood on such an exciting path forward. I will forever cherish this experience.”
Official action to accept Dyson's resignation and discussions on how to fill the vacancy is expected to take place at the regular Rollingwood City Council meeting Nov. 17.
