INGRAM — The Ingram City Council has declined to renew the municipal court judge contract with Bill Ragsdale, who has long served in the role. 

During a city council meeting on Tuesday, three members of the council, constituting a voting majority, expressed concern over rehiring Ragsdale. At least two councilmembers said it appears to be a conflict of interest for Ragsdale’s to serve as both municipal court judge and justice of the peace for Precinct 4.
