Will Serve Until New City Manager is Named
Prescott City Council voted unanimously today to name Tyler Goodman Interim City Manager effective immediately. Goodman has worked for the City since 2016, and was named Deputy City Manager in January of 2022.
In December City Manager Michael Lamar submitted his letter of resignation to City Council. His last day will be February 14, 2023. During the interim period, the City Manager will work with the Interim City Manager to ensure a smooth transition while the City searches for a replacement.
