BUDA – Deputy City Manager Micah Grau was named the interim city manager for Buda, which will become effective April 1.
The city also engaged the international firm, Baker Tily, to conduct its search for a new city manager after Kenneth Williams tendered his resignation to the city council on Jan. 4. The Baker Tilly firm, which has offices in the United States, Australia, Canada, the Cayman Islands, Columbia, Germany, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates and United Kingdom, is a top 10 advisory, tax and assurance firm. Baker Tilly has worked with council members to develop a position description and selection process.
Buda is fortunate to have landed a leader like Williams during a time of significant growth and economic development, according to Mayor Lee Urbanovsky.
“Given the continued growth the city is experiencing and the challenges that accompany such growth, as well as the citizens’ recent passage of a nearly $90 million bond package,” Urbanovsky added, “the council and I felt it appropriate to undertake a search process that would cast a wide and inclusive net of prospective candidates. We feel that we can get such an applicant pool working with Baker Tilly.”
The position description and application for the new city manager can be found on both the Baker Tilly and City of Buda websites. Applicants are encouraged to submit employment credentials and letters of interest by Wednesday, April 6.
