Springfield’s deputy city manager says he’ll retire in December. Tim Smith joined the city in June 2014 after six years as Greene County administrator and over 20 total years with the county.

The city says Smith’s key duties have included completion of an integrated plan proposal for meeting environmental standards and providing direction to various departments, including Building Development, Public Works and Human Resources.

Greene County

Greene County has a new acting administrator. Effective Monday, Chris Coulter will formally assume the title.

The Greene County Commission made the announcement Thursday. Since 2008, Coulter has served as Resource Management Department director. The department includes Planning & Zoning, Building Regulations, Stormwater/Environmental Services and Building Operations.

In a release, the Commission stated that Coulter’s annual salary will be $91,333.

City of Springfield

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.
