Springfield’s deputy city manager the last three years plans to retire in December.

Tim Smith, who succeeded the late Fred Marty in August 2014, is scheduled to formally retire in December. He’ll then take a short hiatus and return on a part-time basis to help complete key projects, including a customer service initiative and development reviews, said city spokeswoman Cora Scott.

“I’m extremely thankful for Tim’s willingness to return next year as a part-time employee to move a number of his projects forward. The city will be better for it,” Springfield City Manager Greg Burris said in a news release.

As deputy city administrator, Smith led the completion of an integrated plan proposal to meet environmental standards and provide direction to several city departments, including Building Development Services, Public Works and Planning and Development.

The city plans to soon start a search for a new deputy city administrator, according to the release.

Before joining the city, Smith worked over 20 years at Greene County, the last six as administrator.
