During the mayor and council reports portion of Tuesday night’s city council meeting, Coppell Mayor Karen Hunt shared a funny anecdote about last Saturday’s Community Health and Wellness Expo.

“It was a wellness triathlon,” Hunt said. “I impressed a lot of people that I actually performed this triathlon until I told them it wasn’t really a run, bike and swim; it was a walk, yoga and meditation. But I can tell you that it was awesome.”

The Expo began with the triathlon “Living Well in Coppell”, and had a turnout of about 150 citizens looking to get healthy.

Hunt then focused toward future city events, as she listed Coppell’s upcoming activities this spring.

The rest of the meeting was full of approvals, with the council approving an audit, budget, water bill regulations, and the zoning for construction of the new Coppell ISD Ninth Grade Center.
