Wilson had recently served as the city’s interim city administrator from May through early September as the city conducted its search for a new city administrator. Former City Administrator Clay Collins retired April 30, while Trevino was hired July 29.
“Without going into too many details, I’d like you to understand that personnel decisions such as these are never easy to make, and are not taken lightly,” Trevino said in the letter. “The Council has entrusted me with taking care of affairs of the city. I take that responsibility seriously and will work my hardest to ensure the resident’s needs are met, expectations for excellent customer service are set; and we, the staff, understand we are stewards of valuable resources, and most importantly are public servants, and, we are at your service.”
According to Trevino, the move was made to ensure the city is providing accurate, timely and requested information to allow the best-informed decision for all.
“Sometimes, that means changes need to be made to ensure we are staying the course and do not lose sight as to why any of us are here,” she wrote.
