City Manager Bert Lumbreras has appointed Kristy Stark as the director of Communications and Intergovernmental Relations with the city of San Marcos.   

Stark has served in an interim capacity since September 2017 and began her career with the city as a contracted public information specialist in 2010. Since June 2011, she served as the assistant director of Planning & Development Services. During her tenure, she streamlined the development process and successfully implemented the nationally-award winning MyPermitNow, which reduced the city’s overall permit turnaround time by 70 percent.

She assisted in leading the team in updating and adopting the Comprehensive Master Plan Vision San Marcos. Additionally, Stark has been involved in Code SMTX.

“I’m excited to have Kristy lead our communication efforts as the voice of the city. Her prior experience and contacts within the community are valuable assets for our executive team. She will be instrumental in advancing the city’s overall image, legislative agenda and ensuring the community stays informed and engaged,” Lumbreras said.

 Stark graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in journalism and advertising from the University of Central Oklahoma.
