• Welcome new Utilities Director and City Executive Assistant

    Dear Citizens,

    I wanted to take a few minutes to welcome two new additions to our team: Lawrence Cutrone and Mary Carmen Nunez.

    Lawrence Cutrone has joined the Alpine team as our Director of Utilities replacing Virgil Clark.  Lawrence comes to us from the Upper Trinity Regional Water District in Lewisville, Texas.  He has accomplished ‘B’ licensing in both Wastewater and Surface Water with the intent to test for his ‘A’ licensing in February of 2015.  He has a Bachelor of Arts from Louisiana State University and a Masters of Public Administration from University of Texas at Arlington.  Lawrence brings a hands on approach to leadership and has a history of bringing innovation to the workplace.  We look forward to his input and corroboration with our existing staff and tackling the many challenges in front of our Utilities Department.

    Mary Carmen Nunez has joined the City team as our Executive Assistant to the City Manager.  In this role, Mary Carmen will help facilitate the timely completion of our 180-day plans, revitalization of our Airport operations and general overflow work from the CM role.  Previously, Mary Carmen worked as the Administrative Assistant supporting Dr. Larry Guerrero at Sul Ross State University.  She is a graduate of Alpine High School, has her Bachelors of Art from University of Incarnate Word and is currently working on her Masters in Education at SRSU.

    I trust that both Lawrence and Mary Carmen will make positive contributions to our community over the next several years.  I am excited to have them on our team supporting the citizens of our City.

  • Virgil Clark – Thank You For Your Service to Alpine


    I wanted to take a few moments to share our sincere appreciation to the work performed by both Virgil and Sharon Clark over the past year.  Virgil came back to the City last October as the Director of Utilities in a time of great need.  We were straddled with some ongoing violations tied to our Wastewater Treatment Plant and needed someone to step in and provide guidance to our Utility Department.  Virgil (with the great help of Sharon) stepped in and help lead us through some upgrades and restoration at the WWTP.  Virgil re-retired from the City at the end of September.

    Virgil always gave credit to the team for their innovativeness and willingness to accept the challenge.  Through that work, we helped build a better team of employees supporting the City.

    Special thanks to Virgil for taking the time to think through some of the pre-Engineered projects and search for least costly solutions that still made sense for Alpine.  Strategically, this helped us navigate through FY2013-14 and alleviate some of the needs for additional debt spending.

    We look forward to continued interaction with Virgil and Sharon in the community.

  • National Night Out

    National Night Out has been an ongoing event across the United States for the past 31 years.  Here in Alpine, we participate annually in an effort to promote crime prevention and help our residents get to know our Police Department better.

    I would ask all of you to support our Alpine Police Chief (Russell Scown) and his team with your attendance Tuesday October 7th.  The event will be held at Kokernot Park and they will be serving hot dogs and have some different activities for the kids.

    We all appreciate living in a ‘safer’ community and recognize that it’s through the support of our law enforcement and citizens that Alpine continues to be the best small town in America.

    Thank you in advance for your support and participation.

    Erik Zimmer, City Manager
