Tomball passes all amendments to city charter, elects Lori Quinn as its newest council member


The city of Tomball voters passed all 34 proposed amendments to the city’s home rule charter in the election held May 10.

The amendments to the charter contained a number of language changes and removal of antiquated and obsolete requirements, Tomball City Manager George Shackelford said.

“The changes to the charter are mostly just cleanup changes,” Shackelford said. “The city formed a committee for the purpose of cleaning up the charter and bringing it up to date.”

The proposed amendments to the charter were recommended by the charter commission and approved by City Council, he said.

Lori Klein Quinn was elected to her first term on City Council after she ran unopposed to fill the seat of retiring councilman Preston Dodson. She was elected to a three-year term and was sworn in at the May 19 council meeting.

F.S. “Field” Hudgens also ran unopposed and was re-elected to his position on City Council for another three years. Hudgens was also sworn in at the May 19 meeting.

Tomball City Council members serve three-year terms with no term limits and are paid $100 per meeting.
