LCRA chief Motal could not survive water crisis
September 20, 2013, 4:00 pm by James Walker
The tenure of Becky Motal, who resigned Wednesday as the general manager of the Lower Colorado River Authority, was bedeviled by a historic drought and a response to it that left the Highland Lakes and the lives of many residents and business owners devastated.
Members of LCRA’s board of directors were kind in their assessment of Motal, who announced her resignation effective Dec. 31 at the conclusion of their monthly meetings Wednesday.
Highland Lakes interests, many of whom had come to regard Motal and her staff’s management of the lakes as a significant contributing factor to the severity of the drought, restrained their comments, for the most part choosing instead to emphasize the need for a fair and fresh approach by her successor.
Burnet County Judge Donna Klaeger, who has often expressed frustration and anger about LCRA’s actions and policies under Motal, said only, "Becky certainly made an impact on LCRA.”
