Jim Miller, who’s been executive director of the League of Minnesota Cities for 22 years, has announced that he will retire in July.
The League made the announcement on its Twitter account:
The league represents 830 Minnesota cities, providing advocacy, training, conferences and research.
Dave Osberg, the Eagan city manager who is now president of the League, said recruiting for a new executive director will begin soon, with the goal of naming a replacement in June.
Before taking the League job, Miller was city manager of Minnetonka for 13 years.
Osberg said that Miller had a “calming presence” in League meetings. “He would mentor board members and he’s always quick on his feet to offer suggestions, without being intrusive,” Osberg said.
“Jim’s had a great career in public service,” Osberg said.
