Mark Hall has been selected City Manager for the City of Coffeyville. In a unanimous vote the Board of Commissioners approved an employment agreement with Hall at their October 9 Commission meeting. Hall most recently was employed as City Manager for the City of Liberal.
“The commission spent considerable time reviewing resumes and conducting interviews the past few weeks,” said Mayor Paul Bauer. “Mark Hall has been involved in city government for 18 years, and we believe he has the experience necessary to hit the ground running and move our community forward.”
Hall served as Liberal city manager for 11 years. Prior to that he was their human resource director and assistant city manager. While in Liberal he developed the city’s first comprehensive strategic plan which included an aggressive street reconstruction program. He also was involved with the creation of special taxing districts which resulted in $70 million worth of retail businesses locating in Liberal.
He is a graduate of Regis University in Denver and a graduate of the Kansas University Certified Public Manager Program. Hall is married and has four adult children.
“When we started this process we were looking for someone with significant experience in municipal government as well as economic and community development, and we believe Mark has those skills and is a good fit for us,” said Bauer. “We are anxious for him to get settled in Coffeyville and begin work.”
Hall’s first official day will be October 15.
