NewsChannel 11 continues to investigate after a shakeup at city hall. Kevin Overstreet was removed as the Emergency Management Coordinator for the city and county. He will soon be removed as the city's director of emergency management.
The mayor says it was only a practical matter. He says it would be best for Overstreet to stop doing emergency management and only oversee animal control operations.
However, Overstreet says it's retaliation. Overstreet asked for an Attorney General investigation of City Hall in 2006.
NewsChannel 11 is trying to get to the bottom of this issue. So, we made an open records request for Overstreet's employee evaluations. They are overwhelmingly positive. In three years there was only one constructive criticism of his handling of the Lubbock Animal Shelter, and all the comments from his supervisors concerning emergency management were positive.
NewsChannel 11 has requested other documents to see if there was trouble that was not reflected in Overstreet's job evaluations.
