Donny Wills – District 5 Kyle City Council Candidate, November 2021

What can be done to ensure builders are paying their fair share so the infrastructure is done right when they build in Kyle?

Require builders to assist in paying for infrastructure improvements near the subdivisions they are building. This includes roads, water ways, sewage, etc...

There are several large commercial, retail and residential development projects currently under construction in Kyle. Do you have any concerns about them or how well our current infrastructure can support them?

I believe the roads will definitely need to rebuilt given the large amount of traffic they will bring. We also need to ensure we are secure on water rights. 

What are your thoughts about Kyle's affordable housing situation? If more is needed, how would you provide for it?

Kyle has a good amount of affordable housing options. 

Law enforcement is one of the largest expenses in the city’s budget. What are your thoughts about the size of Kyle's police force and if they are being deployed adequately and appropriately?

I think our current LEOs need more officers and specialized units such as K9 and SWAT.

The Kyle police department rarely uses cite and release for non-violent, low-level offenses. Do you support the adoption of a cite and release ordinance to reduce needless jailing?


Should Kyle give economic incentives to attract businesses, or is the city’s location on the I-35 corridor and its position as one of the fastest-growing cities incentive enough? Explain.

We definitely need to incentivize business. Especially local, low turn over, and Small Businesses. While the larger businesses do support a large tax base with sales tax, the local business is what is going to keep Kyle what Kyle is. 

What should the city council do to support local businesses?

Create programs to help locals get off the ground, easier and expedited permits for building and improvements, as well as show up. We have seen Council show up to big corporations and ground break, but they dont show for the local companies. 

How well is Kyle planning for the future? What improvements would you suggest?

Kyle is doing better recently in planning than the past. There is still a tremendous need for our Public Safety and Infrastructure. 

What are you willing to do to maintain an open dialog with your constituents?

Be available anytime, anywhere, anyhow I am needed.
