Sweeny City Hall

Texas and United States flags blow in the wind outside Sweeny City Hall.

SWEENY — Dusty Hopkins’ first act as the incoming mayor of Sweeny was to table all further business until the next meeting.

That was the scene at City Hall as the council worked to create a quorum Tuesday evening in order to at least canvas the results of the May 6 election and swear in the winning candidates. Outgoing Councilman Bill Hayes and the recently reelected John Rambo were present, but council needed one more member outside of the presiding outgoing mayor, Jeff Farley, to open the meeting.
