Marvin Townsend Named Interim City Manager in Sinton

SINTON (Kiii News) -

A longtime former city manager in Corpus Christi will be Sinton's interim city manager.

City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday night to hire a contracting firm that provides retired city administrators to help cities that need an interim city manager.

That firm announced the selection of Marvin Townsend, who had been Corpus Christi's top executive from 1968-81. Sinton's former city manager, Jackie Knox, was fired last week by a three to two vote in Sinton's City Council.
