NOLANVILLE — The City Council unanimously accepted the resignation of Councilwoman Lacie Hicks during a special meeting Tuesday at the J.W. Sims Community Center.

Hicks, who served on the council since May 2011, submitted her resignation July 25, stating she accepted a job in the Houston area and would no longer be a resident of Nolanville.

“I have enjoyed working with the city and wish you all the best in the future,” she said in her resignation letter to the council.

Councilman Duane Hampton, Seat 4, said Hicks did the right thing.

“She had talked to us before and said she would be leaving.”

Officials said Hicks was a great asset to the city.

“We are sorely going to miss her because she is a valuable member to the community and to the council, and we wish her the best of luck,” Councilman Dennis Biggs said.

Mayor Christina Rosenthal said Hicks was “very educated, her input was very valued and her high-level thinking was good.”

City Manager Stephen Pearl said Seat 5 will remain vacant until the Nov. 5 general election.
