Jerry Rusthoven, who has served as acting assistant director of the Planning and Zoning Department since last summer, found out Tuesday that he is now officially an assistant director. Congratulations to him! In addition, the Austin Monitor learned Tuesday that Shannon Halley, who has been on Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo’s staff since August 2011, has accepted a position with Austin Water. Her new title will be environmental program coordinator and she will report to Assistant Director Daryl Slusher. Tovo said that since Halley joined her staff, “she has helped develop important initiatives related to homelessness, energy efficiency, parks and so many other diverse issues. She has been a valued member of my District 9 staff. She will be missed, but we wish her well in her new role.”
