City manager search continues

Monday, December 4, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano

For the most part, the meeting was a chance to go over the process of the day, in which Council members would meet in groups with City Manager Search Advisory Task Force members, and a chance to game out how not to violate quorum or Texas Open Meetings Act rules in the process.

In a letter to Council, she explained that “in the last 24 hours a substantial multinational company had offered the opportunity to serve in a leadership position,” leaving five candidates to interview.
