Via news release, the City of Snoqualmie confirmed City Administrator Bob Larson will be stepping down to become Gig Harbor’s new city administrator in early January.
Larson will resign from his position in Snoqualmie in January 2020 to begin work as City Administrator in Gig Harbor on January 6th.
“We are thankful for Bob’s many contributions to Snoqualmie and excited for his opportunity in Gig Harbor,” said Mayor Matt Larson. “He has seen Snoqualmie through tremendous growth in population and economic health, streamlining our city departments and business systems, and elevating the city’s customer service to residents and business owners. Bob has done an exceptional job serving the citizens of Snoqualmie and leaves an extraordinary legacy of which he should be very proud. He will be sorely missed.”
Bob Larson said, “It has been a privilege to have served as City Administrator in Snoqualmie for more than fifteen years, helping to establish a premier city. I have greatly appreciated my partnership with Mayor Larson and current and former City Council Members. I have especially enjoyed the opportunity to work with the city’s talented department directors and all of its dedicated employees.”
Bob Larson was hired by then Mayor Fuzzy Fletcher, to whom he said he owed debt of gratitude for the opportunity when relocating to Snoqualmie from Minnesota with his family. Larson added, “I’m also thankful to the Snoqualmie community for embracing my family as we raised our children.”
An interim city administrator for the City of Snoqualmie has not yet been determined.
