City manager to speak at Mercer Island Historical Society meeting
The Mercer Island Historical Society will meet at 1 p.m. on Oct. 21 at the Mercer Island Community and Event Center.
Rich Conrad, who will be retiring from his position as city manager this January, will talk about his 35 years with the city. He began his career on the Island in July 1979 as research assistant to the city manager. Ten years later, he was promoted to assistant city manager, and has served as the city manager since 1996.
Conrad will talk about past regional policy matters, including the transfer of Luther Burbank Park and Mary Wayte Pool, both from King County; and other issues including affordable housing and the Suburban Cities Association.
