Former Fort Worth City Manager Dale Fisseler, who became deputy city manager and then city manager of his hometown of Waco after leaving Fort Worth, has announced that he will retire from that job in six months.
Fisseler joined the City of Fort Worth as a water official in 1990. He became as assistant city manager in 2004 and city manager in 2007. He joined the City of Waco staff in 2011 after retiring from the Fort Worth job and became Waco city manager in 2014.
“Fisseler will end four years as the city’s top executive in March, but he expects he will continue to be involved in community service activities in his native Waco when he’s not playing with his grandchildren or fishing from his houseboat at Lake Waco,” the Waco Tribune-Herald said.
Fisseler had notified the council of his decision in a Sept. 5 letter and made the decision public at a council meeting Tuesday, choking up a little as he thanked the council and his staff, the newspaper report said.
In Fort Worth, Fisseler was known for his sense of humor and especially for his PowerPoint lecture on Spam.
