Daylight Golf, grub

Daylight Golf received the green light from the Grapevine City Council on Oct. 18 to open a virtual golf business that will have golf simulators and a restaurant with outdoor seating to open at 1401 W. SH 114. Owner Jeff Dill addressed the council, saying that the business would feature a wood slat awning, a wood trellis on the patio, stone treatments around the columns and a stucco exterior motif. During the presentation, Dill asked his wife and daughter to stand and model their “potential uniforms,” drawing appreciative laughter from the audience. The council unianimously approved the golf business, with the owner saying he plans to open in about six months.

Colleyville election slated for Nov. 8

The City Council has called a Nov. 8 election for voters to decide on five propositions to amend the Colleyville city charter, including term limits. The city of Colleyville adopted the charter in 1977 establishing the city’s council/manager form of government and city bylaws.

It was last amended after a charter election in 2005 that included giving the mayor the power to vote and expanding the number of City Council members. The Council established a citizen-led Colleyville Citizens City Charter Review Committee to explore possible changes to the charter. The committee developed recommendations, which the council approved to appear on the ballot. For information on the propositions, to to the city of Colleyville website www.colleyville.com and click on “Colleyville voters to decide on city charter amendments.”

The special election comes on the heels of a turnover earlier this year of several key members on the Council. A packed crowd welcomed three new members to the City Council on May 17 after three incumbents were ousted in a May election.
