Archer City Wants Input Before Changing Street Name

Archer City officials want input from residents before renaming a street after Larry McMurtry.

In Thursday night's City Council meeting, councilors put the decision on hold until July 30th. They said they want more residents to be involved in the process.

Larry McMurtry is a native of Archer City. He has written several novels and is also an Academy Award winning screenwriter. He is known for writing Lonesome Dove and co-authoring the script for Brokeback Mountain.

Also during Thursday's meeting, councilors approved the Main Street application.
