COPPERAS COVE — City Manager Steve Alexander confirmed Friday that he is a finalist to take the helm for the city of Greenville.

“Although the contract has not been signed or approved by Greenville, it is an exciting opportunity for me and my family,” Alexander said.

The Greenville City Council is expected to consider an employment agreement with Alexander at its City Council meeting Tuesday.

“If we lose Steve Alexander, that is the biggest tragedy Copperas Cove has experienced in a long time because we have a homegrown city manager that is not trying to build a resume at the city of Copperas Cove’s expense,” said newly elected Place 5 Councilman Ray Don Clayton.

Greenville Director of Human Resources Barry Robinson has been serving as interim city manager since the retirement of Karen Daly in January.

A native of Copperas Cove, Alexander has been with the city since 1997 and has served as city manager since March 2002. He was also previously employed as the assistant finance director for the city of Killeen.

Alexander holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Central Texas and a master’s degree in business administration from Tarleton State University. He is also a certified public accountant.

Greenville, a city of nearly 30,000, is located 48 miles east of Dallas in Hunt County.

The announcement, which was released by Greenville officials Friday afternoon, comes following a plague of controversy in the city including the indictment of Councilman Fred Harris, the investigation of Councilman James Stockman and allegations that Mayor Roger O’Dwyer has violated the city charter and an attempt to oust him.
