City Manager DiSpirito Promotes Ira Kowler to the Role of Permanent Director of Housing & Community Development


From City Manager DiSpirito

I want to announce that I have promoted Ira Kowler to the permanent Director of Housing and Community Development.

Ira has performed very well this past year in the acting HCD Director role while still covering his economic development duties.  He has the enthusiastic support of his department staff, works quite well with the Senior Leadership Team, and has earned this opportunity.  His knowledge of planning, housing, and economic development, coupled with his productivity, will continue to serve us well.  He will report to Deputy City Manager Eubanks.

Please join me in congratulating Ira on his permanent role.
