The longtime city attorney in Bryan is heading southwest to practice his trade.
Michael Cosentino will be taking over as the city attorney in San Marcos. He resigns his post in Bryan a month after his tenth anniversary with the city, with September 23 being his final day.
“I appreciate the opportunities I’ve had to help Bryan’s elected officials and staff achieve their vision and goals,” Cosentino said in a statement released by the city. “There is a twinge of sadness that comes from knowing that I am about to leave the people I have met and worked with in this community over the past ten years. It is also comforting to know that Bryan’s future is bright because of them.”
According to Mayor Mark Conlee, the search for an interim will begin next week while the city puts a plan together to find Cosentino's permanent replacement.
“We greatly appreciate Michael’s service to the council and citizens of Bryan and wish him continued success in this next phase of his career,” Conlee said in the same statement. “We understand that this move will afford him the opportunity to be a little closer to his family, and that is important to him.”
Cosentino begins work in San Marcos in October.
