The City of Springfield has named Tim Smith as its new deputy city manager. He’ll report to City Manager Greg Burris.
Smith has served as Greene County administrator since 2008, and has been with the county since 1992. In a news release, the city says Smith scaled back to part-time hours and half pay last year in an effort to help the county deal with a budget shortfall.
Smith replaces Gen. Fred Marty, who died last November after a short battle with cancer. Marty had resigned from the position shortly before his death.
The city says Smith will be a member of its leadership team, with key duties to include the completion of an integrated plan proposal for meeting environmental standards; providing direction to the building development services, public works, human resources, planning and development, environmental services, and information services departments.
“We are extremely fortunate to have Tim join our team of talent. His skills and background will allow us to continue our momentum of re-engineering our development process and leading our cutting-edge environmental stewardship,” said City Manager Burris.
A native of Indiana, Smith received a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute in 1975. His experience includes design and construction, plan review, regulation and administration and stormwatermanagement.
He is currently chairman of the Solid Waste District “O” board of directors and is a member of the State Solid Waste Advisory Board. He is Past President of theMissouri Floodplain and Stormwater Managers’ Association. Additionally, Smith is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and Ozark Greenways.
Smith will complete some projects at Greene County before assuming his new role in mid-August. His total salary will be $139,643.
