SPI to discuss filling city manager vacancy at meeting

SOUTH PADRE ISLAND — City leaders will begin planning the search for their next city manager at their next meeting.

“We will decide the method in which we will proceed for the search of the new city manager,” Mayor Barry Patel said.

The next City Council meeting is Wednesday at City Hall.

In the meantime, Assistant City Manager Darla Jones is the interim city manager.

Jones was appointed recently during a special meeting held to accept the resignation of City Manager Bill DiLibero.

“She is a very good and competent assistant city manager,” Patel said about Jones. “She has supervised a lot of projects on South Padre Island from the convention center to construction of many projects that she successfully completed.”
