FORT STOCKTON CITY COUNCIL

UPDATED: City Council revises agenda; removes item to consider shifting police and finance departments under Assistant City Manager

Posted

UPDATED: The Fort Stockton City Council sent out a revised agenda at 5:53 p.m. tonight that removed an item to consider a plan to revise the city's organization chart to include the shifting of the police and finance departments under the Assistant City Manager, and the payroll administrative assistant under the Director of Human Resources at its Tuesday, Aug. 20 meeting.

No reason was given for the change.

The Chief of Police and Director of Finance are currently direct reports to the City Manager, and are on the same level as the Assistant City Manager.

The item is No. 5 on the original agenda and reads:

"Discuss/Act upon Ordinance No. 19-119, Amending the Personnel Policies & Procedures Manual of the City of Fort Stockton, Texas; Providing Revision to the Organizational Chart by transferring the Finance Department and Police Department under the supervision of the Assistant City Manager; And the Payroll Administrative Assistant under the supervision of the Director of Human Resources; Containing a savings slause; And providing for the Publication and Effective Date thereof. (Mayor)"

Former City Attorney Jesse Gonzales Jr. was named Assistant City Manager in late July. Earlier last month, The Pioneer reported that Gonzales was being considered for the dual role of Interim Police Chief and City Attorney. No action was taken on the matter after the story was reported, despite an agenda item referencing Gonzales under a closed council session.

James Valenzuela was named Interim Police Chief last week.
