Fired employee Overstreet to get grievance hearing at City Hall

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The next skirmish between fired city employee Kevin Overstreet and City Hall will be a grievance hearing on January 21st.

Overstreet was fired in mid-November as the animal services director after a year-long fight with city officials. Overstreet tells NewsChannel 11 that, subject to approval by his attorneys, he plans to waive confidentiality and allow the news media to attend the hearing, which is estimated to last two days.

Overstreet claims he was demoted from Emergency Management Director to "Chief Dog Catcher" as retaliation because he requested a Texas Attorney General investigation of certain city officials.

Overstreet also called for the resignations of his then supervisors, Assistant City Manager Quincy White and City Manager Lee Ann Dumbauld.
