Open house to honor retiring city manager of Cottonwood Heights

January 13, 2013 by  

On Tuesday, January 22, members of the Cottonwood Heights City Council will be holding an open house to thank outgoing city manager Liane Stillman for her dedication and contributions to the community.

Stillman, who has held her position since Cottonwood Heights became incorporated in 2005, will be retiring at the end of the month. The event will take place between 4:30 pm and 5:30 pm in the city council chambers at 1265 East Fort Union Boulevard, Suite 300. Printing services were used to create a guest book for Stillman, which attendees will be encouraged to sign upon arrival.

Before becoming city manager, Stillman worked for two years as a top organizer in the push for Cottonwood Heights to become an incorporated municipality within Salt Lake County. Prior to her work on behalf of Cottonwood Heights, she steered efforts to incorporate nearby Holladay, which became a city in 1999. It was her 10 years of lobbying for Holladay’s incorporation that caught the attention of the Cottonwood Heights Community Council and led the organization to recruit her as a leader in its own quest for incorporation.

Stillman’s plans to retire first became public in October 2012. She has stated that she believes this is the right time to leave her position and that she looks forward to spending additional time with her family. Former Highland City administrator John Park was appointed to replace Stillman in early December.

All members of the public are encouraged to attend the open house for Stillman, where refreshments will be provided.
