Following an hour-long closed session on Dec. 12, the Pleasanton City Council unanimously selected Bruce Pearson for the position of city manager. Pearson, 55, whose past experience includes two years as Cibolo City Manager and as the senior inspector with San Antonio Water System, will fill the position being vacated by City Manager Kathy Coronado, who announced her retirement earlier this summer.
Council also voted unanimously to offer a compensation package for the position, as discussed in executive session. Pleasanton Mayor Clint Powell made the job offer to Pearson, as discussed in closed session, on Tuesday. Pearson accepted the offer, but still had a few details to “iron out.”
