Overstreet Will Not Get Grievance Hearing

The ousted director of emergency management will not get to appeal to get his job back.   Kevin Overstreet filed a request for a grievance hearing back on December 3rd.  But Friday, the city told him in writing that the answer is no.  Overstreet is still on the payroll and still in charge of animal control services.  But he will no longer oversee emergency management.  

The city's written statement to Overstreet says that his job is appointed by the mayor.  As such, he cannot appeal to the city manager.  The written statement cites state law.

But, Overstreet disagrees.  He says the city charter is clear that Lubbock has a "city manager" form of government.   He says employees are hired and fired by the city manager, not the mayor.   Overstreet says he has been denied basic rights that any other city employee would have.
