College Station’s City Council has named Deputy City Manager Chuck Gilman as the city’s next interim city manager.
Gilman will replace current city manager Kelly Templin, who announced earlier this month that he would be stepping down at the end of March to serve as Director of the RELLIS Campus for the Texas A&M University System. Templin’s last day with the city will be March 31, and Gilman will begin his role as interim city manager on April 1.
Chuck Gilman currently serves as College Station’s deputy city manager. Prior to his work in the city manager’s office, Chuck served as College Station’s Director of Public Works, Director of Capital Projects and Assistant Director of Water Services. He has been with the City of College Station since 2007. Gilman graduated from Texas A&M University in 1998 with a degree in Civil Engineering.
College Station Mayor Karl Mooney told KBTX that the process of hiring a new city manager would begin in house and that Gilman was a contender to hold the position permanently. The city has not announced a formal timeline for hiring Templin’s replacement.
