Depending on how one were to evaluate Killeen Executive Director of Public Works Danielle Singh’s proposed salary for assistant city manager, it would fall either in the middle or toward the top.
The city of Killeen provided the city council with a survey of 23 cities (including Killeen) what they paid their assistant city managers.
According to the full list, which included cities in the Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston metro areas, the proposed $175,000 salary for Singh would fall slightly below the median.
Not factoring in the metro area cities, however, it would fall near the top, just below College Station, Amarillo, Lubbock and Waco.
The Killeen City Council will consider approving Singh as the new assistant city manager in today’s council meeting.
