Public to Get One More Chance to Discuss Manley as Chief
Thursday evening’s public conversation with Interim Police Chief Brian Manley will be the final opportunity for the Austin community to hear from the candidate and weigh in with their thoughts and questions about his potential appointment as permanent chief.
The event, on Thursday, May 17, from 7-8:30 p.m., will be co-hosted by the City of Austin and KLRU-TV, and will take place at KLRU Studio, 2504 Whitis Ave. B, Austin 78712. It will be broadcast live on ATXN and streamed on Facebook Live.
The community can ask questions during the meeting or provide them in advance through email at OurNextChief@austintexas.gov or by Tweeting their question with the hashtag #OurNextChief. Residents who may need access to languages other than English or Spanish should contact 3-1-1 in advance.
Following the forum, City Manager Spencer Cronk will begin using feedback from a number of panels and public events – as well as comments provided via text and email – to help decide whether to appoint Manley or widen the pool of candidates through a national search.
