The Port Isabel City Commission voted unanimously Tuesday night to appoint Jared Hockema as city manager.

Hockema has been serving as interim city manager since May of this year after the City terminated former City Manager Edward P. Meza, who served in that capacity for more than a decade.

“I want to congratulate Jared on his appointment as city manager,” Mayor Joe E. Vega said after the meeting. “He has served as interim for more than six months. He has a grasp on the needs of the City,” he continued.

Hockema expressed enthusiasm at the appointment, citing his longstanding familiarity with both the community and members of the commission. “I grew up in this area; I live in this area. I care about the City and the people here,” he said. “(The commission knows) me and they know the work I’ve done over the years.”

    Mr. Hockema,

    Here is some important information from CEI Engineering as you plan for future projects. If you have any questions, please email or call. I am available most any time.

    We are really excited about our Parks and Recreation Division and our Sport’s Facilities Design Team. Our experience in planning and design are exceptional. We have a deep history in helping cities grow and even expand when it seems like there is no where to go. Our Houston and Dallas offices are busy assisting others in master planning around the state.

    If you have a high special needs population, check out the Q&A that discusses a park we are designing in Copperas Cove.

    Looking forward to hearing from you, If you are concerned about the rise of COVID cases and would like to have a Zoom meeting, we will be glad to set that up for you at a time that fits your schedule.

    Thank you,
