COTTONWOOD SHORES — City Council is looking for a new city secretary following the recent resignation of Cindy Schwertner.

The council has posted an open position for court clerk/city secretary at the Texas Municipal League website, according to Chief Financial Officer Rick Copple.

"We hope to hire an applicant within a couple of weeks," Copple said June 13.

She resigned for "personal reasons" and to devote more time to her elderly parents, he added.

Schwertner had been city secretary since 2004, Copple said.
