Manvel City Council authorized Mayor Martin to execute an employment agreement with Bobby Gervais to become the city’s first on-staff attorney. Gervais has served as the city attorney on a contract basis for years and is well regarded by city administrators and elected officials. With the growing demands on city legal services Council set aside funds in the current budget year to afford the hire. The City should see a savings in their contract expenditures with Gervais coming on full-time. Shown in the photo is Gervais with Mayor Delores Martin.
