LEAGUE CITY — One of the first priorities for City Manager Mark Rohr when he took the job earlier this month was to fill the vacant city planner post. This week, he did just that.

Paul Menzies, the director of public services and parks and recreation for the city of Harlingen is set to take the planning job in League City next month.

“One of my priorities as a city manager is to fill the open management positions within the organization,” Rohr said. “I believe Paul is a great addition to an already competent and committed staff of professional and public servants.”

Menzies replaces Tony Allender, who after six years with League City left in February to take a planning job at the Texas Medical Center. His interim replacement, Wes Morrison resigned this month to take a job in Marshall.

Before his work in Harlingen, Menzies worked as a city planner and director of development services for Kerrville.  

He has more than 14 years of experience in the public sector, 11 of those years as a department director. He has a bachelor of arts in urban planning from the University of Texas at San Antonio and a masters of public administration from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix.
