recently added allegations of insubordination to the original complaint, saying Dudley did not respond to her authority as the city’s chief executive officer and therefore his superior.
After calling for further discussion and motions and receiving none, Kle-kar said it appeared no action would be taken. Then council members J.P. Minikin and John Curtis said they didn’t intend torrid the meeting without action. Klekar asked for suggestions about possible disciplinary action the council could consider, such as probation, suspension or reduction in rank.
Curtis then made a motion to terminate, and White seconded. Curtis, White and Minikin voted to fire Dudley, while Switzer and Council Member John Albracht voted against such action.
Switzer immediately stood up and tendered his resignation. The council member submitted an earlier resignation in August, which he withdrew within a week.
“Mayor, you have my resignation as of this moment,” Switzer said.
“I will accept it this time, Councilman Switzer, believe you me,” Klekar said.
After the vote, Dudley told the audience the termination was the result of a long-planned conspiracy against him by the mayor and White.
“I would like the people to know that this situation started back on the fifth of February, and it’s gone downhill since then,” Dudley said. “This was a planned, orchestrated move.”
Dudley said the city's relationship with Garden Ridge’s previous city attorney was ended because the attorney would not go along with the ter
mination plan. He also said Kosub was hired illegally.
“I also will make a public statement — and my lawyer and I have discussed this — the mayor and this City Councilwoman (White) have violated my civil rights, and I’m planning legal action,” Dudley said. Many audience members applauded the statement.
Also, Dudley said the city has been notified by the Texas Municipal League of potential insurance coverage problems if the department’s second in command, Sgt. Larry Swain, even remains on the force, not to mention receives a promotion to chief.
After the meeting, Klekar and White denied any conspiracy to fire Dudley, a move they say also was supported by a majority of the council based on facts supporting the complaints they filed against the chief.
Minikin said he thought some disciplinary action against the chief was needed, based on his concerns about Dudley’s improper commissioning of reserve officers, which Minikin believes clearly violated state law. Initially declining to support White’s first motion, Minikin said that alter further consideration he saw no feasible option other than termination.
“After looking over the options again, I recognized the fact that as far as I was concerned, it was necessary to take disciplinary action this evening,” Minikin said.
Curtis said that although he was first unsure about supporting termination, he also came to see that as the only possible course of action.
“Who knows if we made the right decision," Curtis said. “But we made a decision and we have to stand behind it.”

ing 39 cents will be used for local expenditures, many of them associated with the district’s rapid growth,” Kuempcl said.
Included in these local expenditures were costs for building the new Bill Brown Elementary School ($1.6 million), interest on tax anticipation notes ($317,000), 1990-91 expenditures from Comal ISD’s local fund balance ($2.2 million) and other expenditures asso
ciated with this growth.
“Concerned taxpayers have asked me for an analysis of the increase,” said Abel Campos, C1SD business manager.
Campos added that had it not been for the new elementary school being put in operation this year, the CISD budget would have been decreased by approximately $530,000 from the previous year.
