Kyle city manager takes top job in Converse

Thursday, August 14, 2014 by Mark Richardson

Kyle City Manager Lanny Lambert has accepted a job as city manager of Converse, a small city just outside of San Antonio. The job will be a move home for Lambert, who has maintained his residence in another San Antonio suburb, Helotes, since Kyle hired him in December 2010. Lambert said he began looking for new employment after the Kyle City Council failed to renegotiate his contract in January and showed no signs of moving forward. He was caught between the transition from former Mayor Lucy Johnson to new Mayor Todd Webster, who took office in June. Lambert, who has previously served as city manager for Abilene, Balcones Heights, Big Spring, Brownsville and Leon Valley, will start his new position in mid-September. The Kyle City Council will appoint an interim manager until a permanent replacement is hired.
