City accepts McComis’ resignation

After less than one year in the position, Breckenridge City Manager Erika McComis announced her resignation for the position. City commissioners accepted her resignation during a special meeting last Monday, June 13.

McComis came to Breckenridge from Argyle, where she had been the assistant town administrator since May 2020.

During the special meeting last Monday, commissioners agreed to use a new company to search for an interim city manager.

“We will be going with Texas First (Group) for (...) interim city manager services,” McComis said.

The Austin-based group provides interim management services for Texas municipalities, according to their website.

When asked when her last day would be, McComis said she was not sure yet.

McComis was hired in July 2021, after a 17-month search following Andy McCuistion’s retirement announcement in February 2020.

Commissioners began their search after former city manager, Andy McCuistion, announced his retirement in Feb. 2020. Mc-Cuistion served in the position for eight years before retiring in April 2020. The city set up a committee consisting of former and current officials to find a suitable candidate to fill the vacant position.

In May 2020, commissioners appointed Houston Satterwhite, public works director, and Heather Robertson-Caraway, city secretary, as co-interim city managers. They served in those positions until Sept. 2020 when Scott Dixon was appointed as interim city manager.

When Dixon’s time in Breckenridge was up, the committee recommended Robertson-Caraway as his replacement, and commissioners appointed her in February 2021.
