Kyle Hosts Public Meet-and-Greet With City Manager Candidates

People who live in the Austin exurb of Kyle have an opportunity to meet their future city manager tonight. Four people are finalists for the job. They'll be shaking hands tonight at 7 p.m. at Kyle City Hall.

Here are the names of the finalists and links to their biographies:

Dale Brown - City Manager for City of Palestine, TX since 2005

James R Earp, CPM– Asst. City Manager for the City of Kyle since 2006,

       Interim City Manager for City of Kyle since 4/2010

Andres Garza, Jr.- City of Wharton, TX since 1994

Lanny Lambert- City of Leon Valley, TX since 2007



Earp could have an advantage over the other candidates, not only because he's been the interim manager for Kyle since April, but also because Kyle is larger than other cities being managed by the finalists, reports San Marcos Local News.

The City of Kyle's website says the job interviews will take place tomorrow behind closed doors.
