DENTON, TX, February 17, 2017 – City Manager Todd Hileman announced today several organizational changes within the City of Denton.
“In my first few weeks in Denton, I have spent most of my time familiarizing myself with the organization,” Hileman said. “The changes I am making in the organizational structure are designed to help facilitate better coordination across functions, enhance accountability for delivery of projects, improve responsiveness and customer service, provide stronger support and direction to our employees, and utilize resources in the City Manager’s Office more efficiently.”
In addition to changes in reporting structure, Hileman announced changes in the organization of several departments. Hileman created a new Capital Projects Department, the sole focus of which will be the design, construction, project management, and successful completion of the City’s capital improvement and bond programs. The Water, Wastewater, and Environmental Services departments will be combined into one Utilities Department to facilitate the extensive budget and project coordination necessary in these vital services. The City’s Public Information Office and Intergovernmental Relations function will be housed within a new division called Community Affairs, which will also be responsible for coordinating and improving communications with our neighborhoods and Denton area organizations.
Bryan Langley has been appointed as Deputy City Manager/Chief Operating Officer, and he will manage the City’s Finance, Tech Services (IT), Human Resources, Transportation, Administrative Services, Economic Development, Facilities, Fleet, Library, Parks & Recreation, Purchasing & Customer Service, and Airport functions. Langley has been with the City since 2007 and has served as Assistant City Manager and Chief Financial Officer since 2012.
Assistant City Manager Jon Fortune will oversee the new Capital Projects Department, Streets, Environmental Services, Wastewater, Water, and Solid Waste. Fortune began his career with the City of Denton in 1991 and has served as Assistant City Manager for the past sixteen years.
Police, Fire, DME, Community Affairs, and Development Services will report directly to the City Manager.
