Noel Treat, who currently is serving as Deputy Superintendent for the Seattle School District, is Mercer Island’s new Deputy City Manager.

“I am delighted that we were able to attract a candidate as capable and experienced as Noel," said City Manager Rich Conrad. "He brings an exceptional background in public management and law that will be an outstanding fit for our organization. All of his references agreed -- he is a man of great talents, high integrity and good humor. We all look forward to working with him.”

Treat’s first day with the City will be Monday, May 29th. He replaces James Mason, who left the City in February for a job with Ventura, California.
