Nero has been in his role overseeing the police and fire departments, information technology, community services, human resources, and organizational development on an interim basis since June 14. Assistant Police Chief Cory Tchida will continue as the interim chief, a role he has held since Nero's transition.
“Wayne Nero has been a key leader making a significant impact in our community and organization,” Morgan said in a press release. “I’m excited about his service in this new role.”
Joining Nero will be Woolery, who spent the last decade with the city of Baytown and was an assistant city manager for the last two years. With Georgetown, he will oversee planning, inspections, systems engineering, public works, special districts and communications departments, according to the announcement.
“Nick provided significant value in Baytown and will be a tremendous asset to Georgetown,” Morgan said in the release. “His experience in organizational development and process improvement will be critical as we meet the ongoing demands of growth.”
