David Bunker has resigned as the City Manager/City Engineer for the City of Cedar Hills, effective December 30, 2016. Since 2012, Mr. Bunker has served in this position, following eleven years as the city’s Public Works Director/City Engineer.

“It will be difficult to replace the leadership, expertise, and historical knowledge that we will lose when Mr. Bunker leaves Cedar Hills,” said Mayor Gygi. “The City Council and I wish him well as he pursues a new opportunity as City Administrator for American Fork City.”

Chandler Goodwin, Assistant City Manager/Planner, has been appointed to serve as the Interim City Manager until the position is permanently filled. Goodwin graduated from Brigham Young University with a Master’s Degree in Public Administration with an emphasis on local government and finance. He has been employed by Cedar Hills since April 2010 and is fully qualified to serve in this capacity.

“Cedar Hills is lucky to have excellent staff members, responsive elected officials, and hardworking volunteers to truly make Cedar Hills a great city,” Mr. Goodwin stated. “I am excited to continue the strong work that has been done thus far on behalf of our residents.”

Cedar Hills will conduct a nationwide search for qualified applicants to fill the vacancy created by Mr. Bunker’s resignation. Mayor Gygi will present a replacement candidate in 2017 to be ratified by the City Council.
