The City Manager serves as the chief executive officer for San Angelo's municipal government and is the staff liaison to the City Council.

Daniel Valenzuela, City Manager

Daniel Valenzuela was named San Angelo’s City Manager in October of 2012. Since joining the City, he has been at the forefront of efforts to secure more water, improve streets and other infrastructure, streamline development processes, make pay more competitive for City employees, and increase the number of first-responders.

His administration has secured water rights to the Hickory Aquifer and pursued an expansion of its well-field. That has positioned San Angelo to eventually have the capacity to pump, transport and treat up to 12 million gallons per day from the groundwater source. The City is now working on the Concho River Water Project that would yield another 7 million gallons of water daily. Both efforts will diversify San Angelo’s water portfolio, making it more drought resistant and less dependent upon surface supplies.

Valenzuela was also the architect for an eight-year cycle to maintain every City street. At the same time, his team has guided the rebuilding and repaving of San Angelo’s worst streets under an $80 million, 10-year commitment made by the City Council. These accomplishments have been made while maintaining a constant property tax rate throughout his tenure.

Prior to joining the City of San Angelo, Valenzuela worked four years as the City Manager of Eagle Pass. From 2003 to 2007, he was the city manager in his hometown of Fort Stockton. Valenzuela served a tour in the U.S. Army and earned an MBA from Texas Tech University. He is the father of three grown children.
