City Administrator Patrick Rondinelli informed city council at Monday's meeting that he will be stepping down from his position.
Rondinelli has accepted a position with Colorado's Department of Local Affairs southwest office. He begins his new job in September. His last day with the city is Aug. 3, nearly 13 years to the day when Rondinelli began steering the city offices.
Council went into executive session at the end of Monday’s meeting and afterward announced it will hold a work session July 11, 5:00 p.m., to discuss goals for the new administration as well as the possibility of installing an interim city administrator.
"In my 13 years in this role," Rondinelli said in a prepared statement, "I am so thankful to have been a part in the many things we have all accomplished together to make this community an even more amazing place."
Rondinelli thanked the council for the opportunity to work with them and pointed to the renovation project of the Ouray Hot Springs Pool as an example of the current council's leadership and courage.
