City Manager Defers Retirement

June 05, 2020
Earlier this year, City Manager, Bonnie Svrcek announced her retirement effective June 30, 2020. However, following a discussion with Mayor Treney Tweedy regarding the delay in the recruiting of a new city manager, Svrcek will remain in her position and defer her retirement until September 1, 2020. 
In a letter to City Council, Svrcek stated, “I strongly believe continuity of leadership is necessary for our community and our organization during these unsettling times. Because of this, I also know it is extraordinarily challenging to recruit the caliber of city manager candidates our city deserves. It is my privilege to continue to serve as City Manager during these difficult and unprecedented times.” 
“We are fortunate that Bonnie is willing to continue on in her duties as City Manager,” said Mayor Tweedy.  “This is a difficult time to try to recruit new leadership, and it is more important than ever for the City organization to have the type of continuity and excellent leadership she brings. City Council is very appreciative she is willing to stay while we continue to seek the right candidate for the job.” 
In the coming months, City Council will continue its recruitment efforts to hire a new city manager.
