Cedar Hills today announced several changes to its leadership. Konrad Hildebrandt, the City Manager, has resigned effective May 1. David Bunker, the City’s Public Works Director, will act as the temporary City Manager and will work directly with Mayor Eric Richardson during this transition.

Mr. Hildebrandt became the City Manager of Cedar Hills in 2002. Under his management the City experienced tremendous growth and grew from 4,704 residents to now over 10,000. Mr. Hildebrandt’s vision for the City has led to the beginning phase of a commercial district, which has benefited the City through increased revenue from sales tax. During his tenure the City has had a bond rating increase, a decrease in staff-to-resident ratio, and has received the Government Finance Officers Association’s Distinguished Budget Award nine out of the last ten years.

“Konrad has been a valuable asset to our city, and his numerous contributions have led to improved services and quality of life for our residents,” said Mayor Richardson. “We appreciate his service as City Manager and wish him well in his future endeavors.”

Kim E. Holindrake, City Recorder, and Bradley Kearl, City Building and Zoning Official, have also resigned effective today. Ms. Holindrake has been with the City since 1991. Mr. Kearl has been with the City since 1999.

Addressing these changes Mayor Richardson said, “We are grateful for the efforts of these department heads. No doubt City administration will take on a different feel. We wish Kim and Brad all the best.”
