Nine-year information technology city employee promoted to manager

Bucky Hasty, who has worked nine years in the City of San Angelo’s Information Technology division, has been promoted to IT manager, effective July 1. 

The Information Technology department’s seven employees assist and support approximately 400 users within various City departments. The IT manager oversees approximately 60 computer servers, a wireless network that provides connectivity for more than 30 remote offices, the City’s public safety radio system consisting of more than 1,000 two-way radios and budgets totaling approximately $1.3 million.

Hasty joined the City in 2007, as connectivity specialist and has served as the division’s interim manager since John Eades retired in April. During his tenure, Hasty has received four promotions.

One of those promotions included serving as network administrator where Hasty designed and coordinated the installation of links to upload usage data from automatic water meters to the water billing system.

“Our IT division offers exceptional service and Bucky Hasty has been integral in that. His promotion ensures we make the best possible use of his technological expertise, his extensive knowledge of our organization and its needs, and the seamless leadership he has exhibited,” said Finance Director Tina Carriger, to whom the IT manager reports.

Hasty was chosen from among 27 applicants.

“Working with every City department and providing a wide range of technological services is a welcome challenge to our team. I’m looking forward to our continuing that work to ensure our colleagues have the tools they need to work as efficiently and innovatively as possible,” said Hasty in a press release issued by City Of San Angelo’s Public Information Officer, Anthony Wilson.
