Denton City Hall has announced an upper-level reorganization that increases the number of assistant city managers from three to four.
Bryan Langley and John Cabrales have both been promoted to assistant city managers as the duties for the other two assistant city managers, Jon Fortune and Howard Martin, are reconfigured. The promotions were announced late Friday, the day former Assistant City Manager Fred Greene’s retirement became official.
Fortune will supervise some city operations previously under Greene, including the police and fire departments, according to city spokeswoman Lindsey Baker. City officials are still discussing whether solid waste operations will be moved under Fortune. Currently, Martin supervises all city utilities.
Langley will continue to serve as the city’s chief financial officer but will oversee other administrative services previously under Fortune.
Cabrales will supervise neighborhood and community services that were previously under Greene, including parks and recreation and economic development.
Langley has worked for the city since July 2007. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business administration from the University of North Texas.
He also holds a Master of Science in accounting and information management from the University of Texas at Dallas.
Cabrales has worked for the city since he was first hired as a Denton police officer in October 1990. As a city spokesman, he was promoted in May 2007 with additional duties in intergovernmental relations. He earned a bachelor’s degree in political science at Texas Tech University and a master’s degree in public administration at UNT.
The management reorganization was expected to be completed in the next two to three weeks, Baker said.
The city did not make salary information immediately available Tuesday.
