Randy Young, Parker's town administrator since May 2010, has resigned.
Parker Communications Director Elise Penington confirmed that members of town council accepted Young's resignation on May 15, but said she was not certain whether the resignation was anticipated by town staff. Young, whose annual base salary was $185,000, was not present at the council's public meeting that evening.
Penington released the following statement via email, attributed to Mayor Mike Waid:
"Randy Young accomplished many positive achievements during his tenure as Parker's town administrator and we wish him the best with his future endeavors," Waid said.
Michelle Kivela, the deputy town administrator since June 2012, will assume Young's role until a new administrator is chosen. Penington said the council is still determining the next steps and timeline in the search for a new town administrator.
Calls to Young by the Parker Chronicle were not immediately returned.
