They’re going to Washington

The Granbury City Council voted Tuesday night (March 19) to travel with City Manager Wayne McKethan to Washington D.C. to meet with lawmakers at the Capitol and with Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) officials regarding concerns over the Brazos River Authority and whether there will be enough water in Lake Granbury in the event of an emergency at the nuclear power plant near Glen Rose. At the start of the discussion, council member Mickey Parson stated that he wanted to get the city attorney’s opinion regarding a possible “conflict of interest” – a seeming reference to the fact that Mayor Pro Tem Nin Hulett’s wife works for Luminant and is connected to the Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant. Hulett quickly interjected, and said that he had discussed the matter with City Attorney Stuart Neal and that there was no issue. Neal concurred. Hulett was the only council member who voted against the trip to D.C.
