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

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

    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 completion of a new city hall, and helping sustain economic growth as we emerge from a pandemic.


    Woods and Communications Director Jay Socol cover topics ranging from the nature of Woods' 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.
