August 16, 2003

Effective September 1, 2003, City Manager Isiah Turner has promoted Public Services Director Rich McCoy to Assistant City Manager in charge of Public Services (Richmond’s name for public works), Information Technology (IT and GIS) and Recreation and Parks. Previously, Information Technology reported to former Assistant City Manger for Finance, Anna Vega, and Recreation and parks reported to Assistant City Manager Leveron Bryant.

Leveron Bryant will continue in his role of Assistant City Manager in charge of the Library and Richmond Museum, KCRT and “special projects.” The Richmond Museum Association and the City of Richmond continue to be at loggerheads over their relationship to the point that the City of Richmond has no active involvement in the Museum at this time, and both organizations have agreed to mediate their differences. A search for a permanent Library Director is supposed to be underway.

Assistant City Manager for Community and Economic Development Jay Corey continues to be in charge of the Redevelopment Agency, Planning, Employment and Training, the Housing Authority, Building Regulations, Finance, Housing, and the Port.

Risk Management, which had previously been under former City Attorney Malcolm Hunter has been moved under Human Resources Director Cedric Williams, who, in turn, reports directly to City Manager Isiah Turner.

Fire and Police continue to report directly to City Manager Isiah Turner.

The City Attorney, City Clerk and Police Investigative Officer continue to report to the City Council, as does the City Manager.
