SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) - San Marcos City Manager Rick Menchaca has been fired.

The San Marcos City Council on Thursday night voted 4-3 to end Menchaca's employment.

A statement Friday from the city announced the termination and said the decision was effective immediately. No reasons were released.

The statement said Assistant City Manager Laurie Moyer was named acting city manager and city operations "will continue as usual."

A message left at Moyer's office by The Associated Press was not immediately returned Friday. Mayor Susan Narvaiz also did not immediately comment.

No home telephone number was listed for Menchaca, who in May 2008 became the 17th city manager for San Marcos, located 30 miles south of Austin.

Menchaca was city manager of Midland from 2000 to 2007.
