Schulte resigns, accepts position with Jackson County

 

Kansas City, Missouri City Manager Troy Schulte submitted his official letter of resignation to Mayor Lucas today and accepted a newly-created position as the Jackson County Administrator. He will be resigning Monday, December 2, 2019.

“I am looking forward to tackling several major challenges for Jackson County,” Schulte said. “The County Administrator position provides an opportunity to continue my public service in a new role, and I appreciate the confidence shown by the County Legislators and County Executive.”

Schulte has been with the city for 21 years, the past ten years as City Manager with oversight over such projects as the new single-terminal airport and the city’s recent GO Bond election.

Schulte balanced billion-dollar budgets during both a recession and an economic upturn, created an award-winning citywide business plan, expanded the use of data to guide decision-making and to measure results, created a streetcar system that saw billions of dollars in economic growth, and increased leadership opportunities for women and minorities.

No timeline was given for Schulte’s transitioning to county government. Schulte appeared on KCPT’s Ruckus program Thursday, Nov. 21, 2019, and confirmed to host Mike Shanin that his compensation package at the county will closely mirror his city compensation package that included a salary around $200,000.

“I thank Troy for his decades of service to our city,” Mayor Quinton Lucas said. “The impact of his work will be felt for generations. I appreciate Troy’s participation in our city manager search process and his dedication to ensuring continuity for our City employees during this transition period. I wish Troy and Laurie the best in this next chapter.”

Schulte has promoted Tammy Queen to Finance Director, Donna Maize to Fire Chief, and Teri Casey to acting director of the Human Resources Department.
