Bastrop fills development leadership posts with new hires

The city of Bastrop has filled out its open development services positions with the hiring of a planning and zoning director and a building official.

The hirings follow Bastrop City Manager Lynda Humble’s decision to bring Jerry Palady permanently on board as the city’s director of engineering and development after having served in an interim basis since March.

Planning and Zoning Director Matt Jones, who will receive a salary of $121,514, started working for the city on Sept. 19. Jones previously served as town manager and community development director for Argyle, a Fort Worth suburb.

David Brasich, the city’s new building official, will begin his new role in Bastrop later this month. Brasich has worked as a building inspector and official in Marble Falls, Austin, Cottonwood Shores and West Lake Hills over the last 10 years and will receive a salary of $104,782.

All three position are within the Development Services Department, which is responsible for building inspections, transportation planning, code compliance, platting and zoning, among other things.

“We have been searching for just the right candidates to join us in these critical roles, and we believe the team we have assembled will serve our customers and the city well as we plan for the next 100 years,” Humble said in a statement.

Humble said Palady, Jones and Brasich bring over 81 years of development experience, 22 years of municipal government experience, four higher education degrees and 19 professional certifications to the city.
