Mick is Out: McKamie Resigns from Top Amarillo City Hall Post

William "Mick" McKamie, the city attorney for Amarillo, has resigned from his post, effective next month.

McKamie, a native of San Antonio, resigned this morning, according to a release from the City of Amarillo. Officials say McKamie's resignation caps and almost three year period of service to the City, after first taking the job in an interim capacity in 2015.

Following the announcement, city manager Jared Miller, who first joined the City of Amarillo while McKamie was serving in his role, praised the city attorney for his work on various issues including the downtown baseball stadium and the downtown parking garage.

“Mick’s extensive background in municipal government brought a high level of experience to our team,” Miller said in a statement released Tuesday. “He has led our City’s legal team through critical issues, and we knew we were always in good hands.”

McKamie will depart the City of Amarillo on April 11th to return as a full-time partner to the McKamie Krueger LLP law firm in San Antonio. A website for McKamie's law firm says that McKamie also currently serves as city attorney for Alpine, Texas, a community located in Brewster County.

Deputy city attorney Bryan McWilliams, a graduate of the University of Tulsa, will step into the role of interim city attorney on April 11th.
