Job Description

Head “West of the Pecos” to Pecos City, Texas, a town known for its beautiful starry nights, striking deserts, and southern history. Pecos City is home to the world’s first rodeo in 1883, which is still held every year around the Fourth of July weekend. Rich in the history of the old west, Pecos has been an oil boomtown, a destination for pioneers, and a location for historic military forts and modern-day airbases. Located along Interstate 20 with a population of 10,461, its citizens are loyal to their community, hospitable, and Texas friendly.

The Town of Pecos City seeks an experienced servant leader to guide and direct the organization. The new City Manager will possess excellent presentation skills and be skilled at guiding the governing board. This person will also be active in the community, embrace innovation, and be an “idea” person. A strong background in municipal budgeting, operations, fiscal accountability, strategic planning, project management, and capital project planning, funding, and managing will be important. The next City Manager will know best practices in municipal operations and have good business acumen with an eye toward continuous process improvement, transparency, and citizen engagement.

This position requires a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration, Business Administration, Engineering, Urban or Regional Planning, or a related field. The selected candidate must have at least five years of progressively responsible municipal experience as City Manager in a full-service comparably sized community, or as an Assistant City Manager or equivalent in a larger community. A master’s degree and knowledge of Texas municipal laws and regulations are preferred. Private-sector experience and training that provides the equivalent knowledge skills and abilities to manage an organization comparable to Pecos City will also be considered.

The salary range for this position is $120,000 - $150,000 dependent upon qualifications. Residency in Pecos City is required. Due to the significant housing shortage in Pecos, the Town provides housing for the City Manager position with a $700 payroll deduction as rent. Utilities are the responsibility of the occupant.
