On Monday, Mayor Brawner and the City of Katy passed a resolution for Katy’s Heritage Museum to be named after former Katy mayor and city administrator, Johnny Nelson.

Nelson passed away surrounded by loved ones in January 2018. He served as mayor from 1983 – 1987. 

 

After retiring from his role as city administrator (1994-2014), Nelson became the curator for the Katy Heritage Museum.

The honor, therefore, of having the museum re-named in his honor, is another way that his friends and loved ones keep his legacy alive.

His wife of 51 years, Paulette, was at City Hall to see the resolution pass.

There will be a re-dedication ceremony on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at 10:30 a.m.
