The compensation package, including insurance and vacation is worth $258,745. That is the same package, Former City Manager Bob Cass received.
Fox officially begins work March 1st but he has been in Lubbock all week visiting with senior city staffers and reviewing city budgets. Fox says he's excited to make the big move to the Hub City. "I really appreciate the opportunity to serve the community. I'm excited about it. My family is excited about it. Trust me, I'll trust you to do our best to make Lubbock a better place."
