Lubbock City Council to Consider Performance and Employment of City Manager Lee Ann Dumbauld at Thursday Special Meeting

Dumbauld – mylubbock.us

The Lubbock City Council will hold a special meeting this Thursday to consider complaints against a councilman, as well as a performance evaluation and potential action regarding Lubbock’s city manager.

The meeting will take place Thursday, April 4th in Council Chambers at City Hall, located at 1625 13th Street at 3 p.m.

The meeting was originally called to discuss and possibly take action regarding complaints made against District 1 Councilman Victor Hernandez by City staff members.

Three complaints were originally filed against Hernandez, including one from City Manager Lee Ann Dumbauld, in which she voiced concerns that she believed that the councilman is stalking her, and is obsessed with her personal life and watching her home.

Another complaint was filed by Pamela Moon, the City’s executive director of finance, and one was filed and withdrawn by Executive Director of Budget Cheryl Brock.

Brock’s withdrawal stated that “The conflict that is ongoing between City Management and certain members of the City Council has affected staff, especially me, to the point that we can barely function.”

She continued, saying “I was drawn into this conflict because I was given a directive to file the complaint against Victor Hernandez by my supervisor. I was told that it was the only way she could protect me which I interpreted as I could lose my job if I didn’t.”

Late Thursday evening following the City Council meeting, Hernandez posted to his personal Facebook page that he had concerns regarding rumors that Dumbauld was dating the brother of District 5 Councilwoman Karen Gibson and that Karen Gibson was living in the home of the City Manager, which he said could have an effect on Gibson’s neutrality regarding directives to be given to the city manager.

He then posted that rumors had arisen that Gibson was living outside of her district, a matter which KFYO News asked Gibson about following the Council’s March 14th meeting. Gibson curtly denied the rumor.

Also on Thursday’s agenda are considerations on a performance evaluation of Dumbauld and to consider actions in connection with Dumbauld’s employment.

The Council agenda states that they will “Consider and take action with respect to options available to the City of Lubbock in connection with the employment of the City Manager, including without limitation, disciplinary action, or exercising the City’s options pursuant to a Severance Agreement made with the City Manager dated on out about September 21st, 2005.

Finally, the council will consider amending the Lubbock Power and Light budget by increasing their electric production maintenance budget by $1 million.
