City Manager Courtney Sharp has announced the hiring of a new Assistant City Manager.
Bee Cave City Manager Frank Salvato will join the City of Midland’s management team as an additional Assistant City Manager on Oct. 1. Salvato will bring more than 29 years of experience in Texas municipal government along with comprehensive knowledge of short and long-range planning, fiscal management, human resource management, and strategic planning.
Salvato will oversee infrastructure and development services for the city, which includes the departments of engineering services and airports as well as the code administration, planning, community development and downtown development divisions.
“We are pleased to have Frank join us here in Midland,” City Manager Courtney Sharp said. “He will bring a fresh perspective and necessary experience to our leadership team that will be valuable during this time of growth.”
As City Manager of Bee Cave for the past six years, Salvato has overseen an update of the city’s comprehensive plan as well as the development of multi-use projects such as the Hill Country Galleria and Shops at the Galleria. Salvato previously served as City Manager of Taylor for 10 years and Llano for three years. He is no stranger to West Texas, having spent almost 15 years of his career with the City of Fort Stockton by working his way up from Code Enforcement Officer/Health Inspector to Assistant City Manager. Salvato holds his master’s degree in political science and public administration from Sul Ross State University, and also received his Bachelor of Arts from Angelo State University and Associate of Arts in Criminal Justice from Midland College.
Salvato will be relocating to Midland with his wife, Raven before his start date.
“Raven and I are very excited about this new opportunity to live and work in the city of Midland,” Salvato said. “I look forward to working with all of the citizens, City Council and staff.”###
