City Council voted unanimously Monday night (November 18, 2019) to offer the City Manager position to Julie Oakley.
“After months of discussions with search firms and potential candidates, we identified the key qualities needed for the next City Manager,” said Mayor Sandy Cox with the City of Lakeway. “It became clear through the process that Julie embodied the skills and leadership qualities we are looking for in our next City Manager. Please help me in congratulating Julie on her new assignment for the City of Lakeway.”
Mayor Cox also said that contract negotiations would commence over the next few weeks. Julie currently serves as Interim City Manager for the City of Lakeway. She took over the position after the resignation of Steve Jones in August, when she was temporarily elected Acting City Manager and soon after accepted the Interim role. Julie previously served as Assistant City Manager and Finance Director for the City prior to her current position.
