Minutes after a Dilley City Council member was arrested for not leaving a meeting, the little Frio County town was rocked again when City Manager Noel Perez resigned.
Councilman Rudy Alvarez's arrest late Tuesday came less than a month after the town's police chief and sergeant resigned, prompting residents to worry that crime would run rampant. The police officials withdrew their resignations, but the events have caused some residents to worry about what's going on at City Hall.
"It was something that should not have happened, and wouldn't have at a normal City Council meeting," Brown said.
Alvarez did not return calls seeking comment. Foster was out of town, according to city staff.
Sean Carroll, who was born and raised in Dilley, said the resignation was an inconvenience that might have minor effects on city services. It's not the first time Dilley has suffered from political infighting, he said.
"It was inevitable that at some point it was going to escalate to this, and it's unfortunate," she said.
