Roosevelt City Manager Ryan Snow announced on Tuesday, Oct. 22, that he will resign from his position effective in January
During the nearly five years that Snow has served as City Manager, Roosevelt City has improved in every measurable way. Under Snow’s leadership, the city has brought in over $20 million in grant funds—more than ever before in its history. Two-thirds of all city streets have been resurfaced, repaired, or reconstructed, with the remaining third scheduled for 2021. The city is in better financial shape with more unrestricted cash flow than ever in its history. Costs have been reduced, efficiency has improved, and every measurable aspect of life in Roosevelt has improved, despite a down economy.
In his letter of resignation addressed to the city staff, city council and the Roosevelt community, Snow said, “While I love the City of Roosevelt and the employees, being City Manager was never my goal. I have dedicated the last four and a half years to the community, staff, and City Council. For those that know me, I am an introvert at heart and have always preferred the back of the room to the center of attention.”
Snow also offered thanks to the staff, council, and community who have helped the city to grow and improve during his time at Roosevelt City.
“I thank each of you, members of the staff, council, and public, for this opportunity to have served you,” wrote Snow. “I have done my best. I feel our city is better today than when I came, and for that the staff should be commended for all of their hard work. It has come time for me to move on to other opportunities. While everyone can always improve on something, it has been councilmen like Aaron Weight, Joe Burdick, and Dustin White, just to name a few, that, along with the city administration, have worked for the betterment of our community. We have had some of the greatest people I know work for the city and I believe that all of the staff are owed a higher level of respect. I hope and pray for the continued success of the city I have loved and served. I will truly miss it.”
Snow plans to remain with Roosevelt City until January to help ease the transition to a new city manager.
Roosevelt City wishes to publicly thank City Manager Ryan Snow for his ceaseless efforts to improve the quality of life for our residents. Thanks to his leadership and vision, our city improved even as the economy declined. The position of city manager is often thankless, but we wish to express our gratitude for all that Ryan Snow has done for the betterment of our community and wish him luck in his next endeavor.
