David Denman will begin serving as Albany’s city manager Feb. 15 after being hired earlier this week, Albany City Secretary Becky Wiloth confirmed Thursday.

Denman, who has served as the city manager in Dimmitt for the last seven years, will begin with a salary of $70,000. After six months and pending a positive evaluation, his salary will increase to $75,000. After 18 months, it rises to $77,500, and to $80,000 after two years, Wiloth said.

Denman will replace Dave Ramon, who resigned in October amid allegations of sexual harassment. Abilene attorney Lois Rockefeller, who serves as Albany’s legal representative, said in a statement last fall that the Albany City Council “did not make a finding of sexual harassment,” but declined to comment further.

Ramon’s salary was $80,000 when he resigned, Wiloth said.
