League City selects Director of Public Works

Gabriel Menendez - Director of Public Works

The City of League City recently selected Gabriel Menendez to serve as the new Director of Public Works beginning Aug. 8.

In this position, Menendez will provide direct oversight for streets, storm water management, traffic operations, wastewater treatment, water production, line repair, vehicle maintenance, and facilities maintenance. He will also assist in the development of the city’s strategic plan and helping to meet the increasing demands of the organization, improve operations, and enhance customer service to the League City community.

“I am looking forward to serving the community of League City”, said Menendez. “With more than 30 years of experience, I plan to assist in the implementation of the city’s 'Roadmap to the Future' as well as the maintenance and operations of the city's public works infrastructure."

Menendez served as the Director of the Public Works Department for the City of Tallahassee for approximately 12 years prior to being selected for this position. His responsibilities included bringing Tallahassee’s ‘Sense of Place’ and Public Works Service Ambassador Initiatives to fruition and implementing ‘complete streets’ strategies geared at revitalizing a historical industrial area into a signature destination.

“Gabriel brings more than 30 years of experience in public works to League City,” said John Baumgartner, Deputy City Manager. “He has a commitment to customer service and will build upon our successes in meeting the public works needs of our community.”

He has served as a City Traffic Engineer, Transportation Planning Engineer and Traffic Manager throughout his career. Menendez also served as the District 14 Traffic Engineer for the Texas Department of Transportation. He attained a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and an Associate in Arts Degree from Florida State University. He also holds professional engineer licenses in Nevada and Florida.

Menendez has also been honored as the 2013 Public Leader of the Year by American City and County Magazine for his efforts in advancing the City of Tallahassee’s revitalization project.
