After 50 years of public service, General Fred F. Marty has announced his plans to resign from the City of Springfield due to health reasons. Marty’s resignation is effective immediately. City manager Greg Burris and assistant city manager Collin Quigley will divide Marty’s duties during the interim period. Recruitment for his position is expected to begin soon.
As deputy city manager, Marty has participated in development of the Integrated Plan proposal for meeting environmental standards and providing direction to the Building Development Services, Public Works, Human Resources, Planning and Development, Environmental Services, and Information Services departments. The city, in a release issued Tuesday, said Marty’s biggest legacy is his work on Collaborative Community Development- a philosophy for working with private developers and designers in developing the community. For the last 15 years he has also served on numerous boards and development projects.
Marty was born in St. Louis and attended Missouri State University in Springfield, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree and participated in Army ROTC. He has served several tours overseas during his military service. Marty has served as vice president for administrative services at MSU and as chancellor for the Board of Governors at MSU West Plains.
