Texas City Manager Lays Himself Off

KELLER, Texas (UPI) — The city manager of Keller, Texas, declaring municipal management positions needed to be trimmed, announced his own layoff.

Dan O’Leary told the City Council of his decision Tuesday and the public Wednesday, saying, “It’s a little unusual for a city our size to have three managers,” a reference to his two assistant city managers, Steve Polasek and Chris Fuller.

Keller is a northern suburb of Fort Worth with a population of about 40,000. A replacement will be chosen by the City Council.

O’Leary said his last performance review was positive and that there are no issues forcing his self-removal. He is leaving ahead of city elections in May before an annual budget process gets underway and after last week’s auditor’s report was submitted.

“This was the best time,” he said.

His last day on the job will be April 20. No other staff reductions are planned, the Fort Worth, Texas, Star-Telegram reported Thursday.
