Dale Fisseler

Career highlights and education: I had the opportunity to work for the City of Dallas in the 1980s and Fort Worth from 1990 to 2010. I retired as city manager in Fort Worth in 2010. I moved back to my hometown of Waco in 2011 and became city manager of Waco in 2014.

What I like best about my job is: We have a great city council and a great group of city employees here in Waco.

The best advice I’ve received for my current job is: Anything is possible (especially if you don’t have to do it!)

Advice you would give a new hire in your office: Work hard and be safe and you will be surprised at how fast a career happens.

If I ever decided to leave work early, I could probably be found: on beautiful Lake Waco!

People would be surprised to know that I: am a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio (all it takes is $75!)

One thing I wish more people knew about my agency: It is important to maintain the infrastructure (even in tough economic times!)
