“We look forward to working with William Rumuly to further develop Fort Worth Municipal Court’s outreach to the community,” Assistant City Manager Valerie Washington said. “While serving as an interim director, he has implemented new and innovative ways to take the court into the community, an effort that has been made even more challenging by the COVID-19 pandemic we’re experiencing. As we move forward, we will rely on William’s vast knowledge and experience as we continue to implement best practices for our court system.”
