The Katy City Council Friday afternoon appointed attorney Frank Carroll to the Ward A city council seat left vacant by last month’s resignation of J. Gary Jones.
Carroll will serve out the remainder of the term, which expires next May. He was appointed earlier this year to serve on the city’s board of adjustment, which deals with zoning issues for the city.
Carroll is a partner and shareholder with the Houston law firm Roberts Markel Weinberg Butler Hailey. He heads the firm’s appellate law group. He earned his law degree from the University of Houston. He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of California-San Diego.
Carroll joins Janet Corte as a Ward A council member. Corte was elected to the council in May.
Jones resigned his seat last month, citing personal family matters.
