El Paso, TX (KTSM) — City Manager Joyce Wilson announced Friday morning that she will be stepping down effective Tuesday, May 20.
That is the same day City Council is expected to approve the contract for Tommy Gonzalez to become the next city manager. Gonzalez's contract would be effective June 23, however, Wilson said he will begin informally working with council starting as early as next week.
Wilson said Gonzalez will work a couple of days each week to oversee the summer budget process and to prepare to file the budget later this year.
Wilson said an acting/interim City Manager will be appointed to serve between May 20th when she steps down, and June 23 when Gonzalez's contract officially begins. Wilson said she will be available on a consulting and advisory basis as needed.
"I want to assure you this is a normal part of transition in this type of leadership change and there is nothing to be concerned that is out of the ordinary," said Wilson.
