Assistant City Manager

Jeff Straub, ICMA-CM, C.M.

Jeff Straub was named assistant city manager and chief operations officer for the City of Taylor in March, 2010.

Jeff's perspective is that while lean financial times may be a constraint from doing some things, there is no reason that we cannot provide the absolute best customer service.  One of Jeff's priorities is for city staff to respond to complaints and solve problems as quickly as possible.  This website's Fix-it Form is one mechanism utilized to reach this goal.

In 2012, we personally responded to 291 Fix-It Forms and 164 emails.

In addition to overseeing the day to day operations of the City, Jeff's duties also focus on economic development opportunites for the City of Taylor in the areas of retail, commercial and subdivision development. Click HERE to learn more about the City of Taylor's opportunities.

Primary jobs' opportunities are assisted by the Taylor Economic Development Corporation, a Type A corporation. 

Jeff is in his 32nd year of municipal service, having served as a police officer, police administrator and chief of police for most of his career.  Jeff possesses a M.A. in Leadership from Liberty University, Executive Certification in Leadership and Management from the University of Notre Dame, is a ICMA Credentialed Manager; is a Certified Professional Manager, 
and is a 1994 graduate of the FBI National Academy (177th).
