City administrator fired

By Erika Pedroza | Published Saturday, March 17, 2012

Following a three-hour closed-door session, the Runaway Bay City Council voted 4-1 Friday to dismiss City Administrator Greg Leveling effective immediately, citing “a lack of confidence in a municipality officer elected by the governing body.”

Council member Berry White referenced Texas Local Government Code Section 22.077B in his motion.

“If a governing body of a type A general-law municipality lacks confidence in a municipality officer appointed by a governing body, the governing body may remove the officer at any time by resolution, declaring a lack of confidence in a municipality officer provided that two-thirds of the governing body vote in favor of the revolution,” he said.

He corrected himself to say “resolution” instead of “revolution.”

Council member Mark Allen opposed.

Because a settlement was not reached, the city will honor its contract with Leveling as allowed by the Texas Constitution, City Attorney Meredith Ladd said.

Two years remain on Leveling’s three-year contract. His initial base salary was $60,244.

According to the contract, because his employment was involuntarily terminated within the first two years, Leveling will receive a lump sum cash payment equal to the remainder of his unpaid salary.

In addition, Leveling is entitled to all life, health, dental and disability insurance and all other city-provided benefits at the city’s expense for 12 months or until similar coverage is provided by a subsequent employer.

He has served as Runaway Bay city administrator since January 2010.

Prior to that he worked in law enforcement in Denton and Dallas counties.
