Frank Myers Named City Administrator of Sedalia, Missouri
(Sedalia, Missouri): Following a nationwide search, I am pleased to announce that Frank L. Myers, City Administrator of Glendale, Missouri, has been named the next City Administrator of the City of Sedalia, Missouri. I am excited to see the new direction and ideas this Administrator will bring to our community. With over 25 years of experience in municipal government management, Mr. Myers brings with him a strong background in a number of areas that will compliment the projects and priorities of the City of Sedalia.
Throughout his career, Myers has worked to strengthen the financial condition of the communities he has served. As the first Town Manager of West Warwick, Rhode Island, he was profiled in Public Management magazine for his efforts in restoring the town's bond rating and eliminating short-term debt while building public trust and confidence in local government. In Crestwood, Missouri, Myers worked to eliminate short term debt, streamline municipal operations and aggressively monitor expenditures.
Myers brings with him experience in community and economic development. Projects completed in Crestwood under his leadership included the redevelopment of a 5.7 acre site, the construction of a new retail center and the reconstruction and rehabilitation of an 8 acre blighted shopping center site. Both of these projects involved the creation of a Community Improvement District to financial development costs. Myers also has extensive experience in upgrading house stock in the communities he has served.
Myers has been successful in gaining voter approval of a number of ballot initiatives and has written on the steps to successfully passing tax initiatives for the Missouri Municipal Review.
Myers is an active member of the International City/County Management Association and has served on the ICMA Taskforce on Civics Education Programs, the ICMA First Time Administrators Taskforce and the ICMA Conference Planning Committee. Myers is also active with the Missouri City/County Management Association and presently serves on the Missouri Municipal League’s Finance and Taxation Committee.
Frank Myers holds a B.A. in Organization Development from Ottawa University in Ottawa, KS and a Masters in Public Administration from the University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS. Myers and his wife, Carolyn, have been married for the past 29 years and have a son, Mark.
Mr. Myers will begin his employment with the City of Sedalia on April 5th. He and his wife will be relocating to Sedalia in the coming weeks and look forward to becoming a part of our community.
