Hellmann plans to step down from City Council after August move

District 2 Councilman Troy Hellmann said he plans to step down from City Council later this summer.

Hellmann said he is building a house in the Georgetown Village neighborhood, which is located in District 5. He and his family will move once construction is completed, which could be mid-August, he said.

"I'm sad. I would like to stay, but the rules are the rules," Hellmann said. "It's been an honor and a privilege to serve on council. I've really enjoyed it. I'm going to miss it, and I wish I didn't have to step down, but you have to do what you have to do."

A special election could be held in November to fill the District 2 seat.
