GUN BARREL CITY–After a 30-minute executive session at the city council meeting Tuesday night, the Gun Barrel City Council voted to rescind the termination of the Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Lee Peterson that occurred at the council meeting Aug. 2. At the time, Peterson had only held the position for seven months. Peterson filed an appeal of his termination and retained Dallas attorney Tim Robinson to represent him.
When the President of the Board of Directors of the EDC addressed the council, he said, “To the best of our knowledge, all claims made (by Lee Peterson) are false and without merit…I would like to share the new board’s opinion. We have a lack of confidence in Mr. Peterson. Further, we would hope and expect the city council to uphold the board’s decision to terminate Mr. Peterson.”
