Hensley chooses to stay in Austin

Friday, March 29, 2019 by Elizabeth Pagano

As the Austin Monitor noted two weeks ago, Parks and Recreation Director Sara Hensley visited Flagstaff, Arizona, to discuss the possibility of becoming city manager there. But Hensley returned to Austin having rejected Flagstaff’s proposal. She told a reporter that she would be keeping her job in Austin because she could not “reach an agreement on terms” with the much smaller city. Hensley was an interim assistant city manager for Austin from March 2017 until the end of 2018.
