The city of Bee Cave accepted the resignation of City Manager Clint Garza at the Jan. 23 meeting.

Garza was appointed to the position in 2018 following an 11-year career in various leadership roles in Hays County, according to the city's website.

“In a little over 5 years I’ve met so many wonderful people, made lifelong friends, and been a part of long-term planning efforts to ensure Bee Cave continues to thrive while holding on to the things that make all of us to proud to live here,” Garza said in a Facebook post Jan. 25. “To leave something I love this much could only be the result of an opportunity worthy of pursuit.”

The details

Garza will be moving on to another undisclosed opportunity, according to a Facebook post from Mayor Kara King on Jan. 24.

“He has accepted an exciting new opportunity that will build on the work he has done in Bee Cave and his awesome talents, to take it to the next level,” King said.

In his time with Bee Cave, Garza worked with his team to spearhead several infrastructure, transportation and development projects.

“Your absence will be felt,” King said to Garza at the meeting. “I think the job of any person in any job, whether it’s a volunteer position or leadership position or your day to day job, is to leave your position better than you found it ... and I think you get to have that satisfaction ... knowing that you did that.”

What's next

Garza’s last day will be Feb. 29, King's post said. As of press time, a timeline for hiring a new city manager has not been established.

“With the council that we have, I think it’s our No. 1 priority to find somebody,” council member Courtney Hohl said. “We’re never going to get anybody as good as Clint, but we are sure going to try.”
