The City of Hopkins announced today the resignation of Hopkins Public Works Director Nate Stanley, effective December 20, 2022.
In his letter of resignation, Stanley cited his desire to return to his engineering roots as a driving force behind his decision to leave the City. He has accepted a position as Senior Project Manager with engineering firm Bolton and Menk.
The City hired Stanley as City Engineer in March 2014. He was promoted to Director of Public Works in December 2021 after the retirement of former director Steve Stadler.
During his time with the City of Hopkins, Stanley oversaw many engineering projects including the reconstruction of Blake Road, the development of the Artery, the coordination of the METRO Green Line Extension with the Metropolitan Council, and the acceleration of the City’s Street and Utility Improvement Program.
“Nate is an extremely hard worker, with a wonderful personality and a great sense of humor to go along with it. His resignation is a huge loss for Hopkins,” said City Manager Mike Mornson. “I want to thank him for his eight years of dedicated service to the City. We will miss him.”
City Manager Mornson has named Chuck Autio, current Assistant Public Works Director, as Interim Director of Public Works.
