Council cancels upcoming municipal general election, declares February Career and Technical Education Month

Katie Park
The Coppell DECA chapter is recognized for its accomplishments and represents February’s career and technological education Month. The Coppell City Council held its usual meeting on Tuesday night.

On Tuesday, the Coppell City Council approved the cancellation of the May 4 General Municipal Election. The offices of Mayor and Place 2, Place 4 and Place 6 are all unopposed on the ballot. Incumbents Wes Mays, Brianna Hinojosa, Kevin Nevels, and Biju Mathew have been re-elected.

The council additionally declared the month of February as Career and Technical Education Month to honor the work of CTE programs in the Coppell Independent School District.

CTE programs in CISD allow students to gain technical and employability skills for their future careers, and provide for experiences that improve the quality of students’ education and introduce them to technical skills.

Council member Kevin Nevels spoke on the benefit of CTE programs, and their advancement in recent years.

“It’s great to see amazing, bright young people taking advantage of these opportunities that CTE has to offer, and it makes me excited about our future,” Nevels said.

The council moved to approve the Annual Comprehensive Financial Report for the fiscal year ending on Sep. 30, 2023. Results from an audit on the fiscal year found no deficiencies or weaknesses in any financial programs, including Coronavirus fiscal recovery programs, and found that the city complied with all financial regulations.

“I think this is a report card for our strategic financial engagement department, and I think they are getting an A-plus,” council member Jim Walker said.

Jackie Wykowski has been named the executive director of the Woven Health Clinic, replacing Lisa Rigby who recently resigned. The Dallas Regional Mobility Coalition will be conducting investigations into the state and developments of public transportation in the Dallas area, possibly leading to an introduction of more forms of public transportation to Coppell and surrounding areas.
