Branson assistant administrator, planning director leave

Posted online
The city of Branson is losing two high-level employees this month.

Assistant City Administrator Frank Schoneboom has resigned and will leave Oct. 29, according to a news release. He could not be reached for comment at city offices because he is on leave until his last day, according to city spokesman Jerry Adams.

He has been in the position since 2004 and also served as Branson's interim city administrator from August 2007-June 2008 while the Board of Aldermen hired current administrator Dean Kruithof. Before coming to Branson, Schoneboom was Rogersville city administrator.

There are no plans at this time to fill the assistant city administrator position, the release said.

Planning and Development Director Don Stephens also has resigned, and his last day will be Oct. 31, according to a separate news release.

Stephens has been in the position since 1995. During his tenure, he was instrumental in creating a comprehensive plan for the city and a master trails plan. He also combined the city's building department with planning and development to be more convenient for builders and developers, the release said.

Adams said he could not comment on personnel matters.[[In-content Ad]]
