All Up In Your Business Podcast: The business of managing College Station

By Jay Socol, Public Communications Director

Bryan Woods became College Station’s city manager in November 2018, but less than two years later he began a year-long deployment to the Middle East with the U.S. Navy Reserve. Now he’s back with a lot of work to do, including prepping a draft budget for FY 2022, overseeing the completion of a new city hall, and helping sustain economic growth as we emerge from a pandemic.

In this podcast episode, we cover topics ranging from the nature of Bryan’s relationships with Texas A&M, the City of Bryan, and Brazos County, to the significantly different role the next city hall will have in the lives of College Station residents.
