April 23-- Uvalda city councilman Johnny Corley is resigning from the council.
Last week he was informed by the city attorney it was a conflict of interest to serve on the council while at the same time working for the city as a contractor in charge of Uvalda's water and sewer system.
Today Corley submitted his letter of resignation from the council effective April 30.
Corley also said he had planned to resign in August in order to run for mayor and that he will not seek to renew his contract as water consultant when it expires January 1, 2014.
He added, "Uvalda is a great place to live and I have enjoyed working here for the last 35 years."
