It’s official. Forney Assistant Manager Gina Nash, will become Sachse’s new city manager effective June 1.

“The council has selected a very dynamic and well-educated individual,” said Mayor Mike Felix. “I truly believe that she will be receptive to the needs of the citizens and have a positive management style.”

George was the council’s unanimous choice from the more than 35 applications received.

The city manager position has a base salary of $154,000 with a $7,200 car allowance and moving expenses up to $10,000. A formal employment agreement has been executed.

Nash has been assistant city manager since 2008. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from Texas A&M. She earned a Master of Public Administration from the University of North Texas.

“The council is very pleased with our decision,” Felix said. “She has good credentials, is very familiar with our city and has the ability to invoke the visions of the city as established by the council who are representing the citizens.”

While in Forney Nash was responsible for the oversight and direction of 54 employees in the areas of: Community Development (including Building Inspections, Planning and Zoning, Code Compliance, Solid Waste and Recycling Contract Administration), Engineering, and Public Works, Parks and Recreation, Information Technology and the Economic Development 4B Corporation.

“Sachse is a great city full of amazing people, and I am truly humbled that the city council has given me this opportunity,” Nash said. “My family and I are excited about making Sachse our new home. As the new city manager, I am eager to roll up my sleeves with the council and city staff to meet the many challenges we face in these times of rapid change as well as the day-to-day business of running the city.”

The Sachse city manager is responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of the city government.
