Manley makes the rounds

Thursday, May 3, 2018 by Katy McElroy

As the Austin Monitor reported on Monday, the wheels are in motion for Austin to get a permanent police chief. Many have been speculating that City Manager Spencer Cronk would promote Interim Police Chief Brian Manley to the position. In a slight twist, however, Cronk has announced that Manley instead is simply a finalist – albeit the only finalist. Over the next few weeks, the sole finalist will share his platform in a number of public appearances, and after this, the city manager will decide whether to officially appoint him to police chief or open the playing field up to other potential candidates. As part of the engagement process, the city and KLRU-TV are co-hosting two public forums. The first is on Monday, May 7, 6-7:30 p.m. at the Turner-Roberts Recreation Center, 7201 Colony Loop Drive, and the second is on Thursday, May 17, 7-8:30 p.m. at the KLRU Studio, 2504-B Whitis Ave., on the University of Texas campus.
