League City seeks new economic coordinator
League City plans to advertise an opening for its economic development coordinator position next month.
Doug Frazior currently holds that job, but starting Feb. 1, he will work on the city's new League City Improvement District until he leaves the city at the end of September. In his new role, he'll earn a salary of $45,000 -- about half his current pay, said interim city administrator Marcus Jahns.
Frazior is one of three city employees whose jobs were targeted earlier this month as part of changes in leadership" initiated by Jahns.
At the time, Jahns said of Frazior, Doug knows his stuff. He knows the nuts and bolts of how economic development works. He knows the statutes and the tools that are available, but he's not the strongest salesperson in the world."
Once the city's economic development coordinator opening is advertised next month, Jahns said he would like to fill the position as soon as we can." He said he does not have a candidate in mind.
We're looking for somebody who's got real strong marketing skills," Jahns said.
For now, Jahns said he, land management director Tony Allender and city consultant David Benson are handling the city's economic development.
Now's a good time for us to get out in front of the market while the economy is down," Jahns said.
