LAMPASAS (September 14, 2012)--Llano City Manager Finley deGraffenried will serve as the new Lampasas city manager.
DeGraffenried takes the place of Michael Stoldt, who was fired just over a year ago for “in-house reasons.”
In June, the city selected David Vela as a finalist for the position but he turned it down after failing to come to terms with the city council on salary and other terms of employment.
Interim City Manager Stacy Brack has been filling the position temporarily since last August.
DeGraffenried will give the City of Llano about a month’s notice before working in Lampasas full-time October 15.
The city says deGraffenried’s experience with various management projects and his social skills make him a good match for the city.
