New interim supervisor at Lubbock's Animal Services

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - NewsChannel 11 has learned that a new interim supervisor is in charge of Animal Services. However, City Officials will neither confirm nor deny that Lubbock's Animal Services Director, Kevin Overstreet, has been placed on paid leave.

NewsChannel 11 broke the story that Kevin Overstreet called for the resignations of City Manager Lee Ann Dumbauld and Assistant City Manager Quincy White.

This comes after a year-long dispute. Overstreet was removed from his duties as the City's Emergency Management Director but remained as Director of Animal Services.

At that time, Overstreet filed a grievance saying he was the victim of retaliation. On Monday, Overstreet refused a settlement offer claiming that details of the negotiations were leaked. That is when he called for the resignations of his bosses.

Monday afternoon, Overstreet returned a call to NewsChannel 11 saying, "the City of Lubbock continues to retaliate."

Cynthia Metsgar is now the interim supervisor of Animal Services.
