City Manager Brian Hiatt has informed the Mayor and City Council of his plans to retire from the City of Concord with a target date of March of 2018. Hiatt started as Concord’s City Manager in October of 1998. Among the most tenured of active professional local government managers in the state, he has 37 years of experience working for local governments in North Carolina.
He made the following statement to City staff in an email earlier today:
It will be extremely hard to leave the City of Concord organization, but it is time for me to prepare to move on to my next challenge and spend more time with my family. I wanted to give the Mayor and City Council plenty of notice so they can be well on their way in selecting their next City Manager.
Concord is a special place to live and work. I have been blessed to work for Mayors and Council Members with constructive agendas focused on doing what they feel is best for the citizens of Concord, and they have provided direction leading to so many significant accomplishments. I have also been able to work with a great team of coworkers including deputy and assistant managers, department heads and hundreds of coworkers delivering services on the front line. These coworkers are, and always have been, the backbone of our organization.
In the meantime, there is plenty to do over the next months. One of the great things about Concord is there are always positive activities and challenges. I look forward to continuing to work with our team toward accomplishment of the Council’s many goals.
