Neighborhood & Development Services Director Kaleb Kentner accepts position with City of Weatherford, Texas
GARDEN CITY – City of Garden City Neighborhood & Development Services Director Kaleb Kentner has announced his resignation effective July 26. Kentner has accepted a position with the City of Weatherford, Texas.
“I’m incredibly grateful for the last nearly fifteen years of opportunities I’ve been provided working for the City of Garden City, City of Holcomb, and Finney County,” says Kentner. “It’s been a wonderful experience to work for such wonderful people in these communities and all of western Kansas.”
Kentner has worked as the Neighborhood & Development Services Director for the City of Garden City since September 2004. Under his direction, the Neighborhood & Development Department has been responsible for work with the City of Garden City, City of Holcomb, and Finney County to provide services such as building inspections, code compliance, planning and zoning, development design and engineering, and community services.
“Kaleb has been instrumental in the growth and development of Finney County. In his work with all three local governments, he has been the consummate professional and a model public servant,” remarked City Manager Matt Allen. “Kaleb’s contributions to the City’s senior staff will be sorely missed. His calm and thoughtful demeanor, often in very difficult situations and his creative problem-solving skills are held in high regard by all of our staff and the City Commission. Weatherford, Texas is getting an outstanding person and professional for their new Director of Development & Neighborhood Services. We wish him, Jennifer, and their children, all the best in this new chapter of their lives.”
Kentner will begin working for the City of Weatherford starting late July as the Director of Development & Neighborhood Services.
