Cronk gets ‘glowing’ review
Friday, November 30, 2018 by Jo Clifton
Following an executive session evaluation of City Manager Spencer Cronk on Thursday, Mayor Steve Adler announced that Council had given Cronk “a pretty glowing review.” He added, “We’re excited and pleased that you are here and right now you’re making us all look pretty wise in our manager selection.” Naturally, Cronk responded that it has been an honor for him to serve for the past year, even though his service began in February. Cronk has certainly been tested by dealing with the recent water crisis and trying to get a new contract with the city’s police force, but there have been no major stumbles. The mayor did not mention what Cronk’s salary might be now that he has come through an initial review with flying colors. According to The Texas Tribune, his salary was $325,000 in March.
