Prochazka assumed elements of her new role in mid-March, but will continue to oversee Planning & Development Services until a time line is identified to backfill her position. As assistant city manager, Prochazka will focus on increasing the city’s public engagement efforts related to face-to-face and virtual meeting formats. She also will oversee multiple departments and help execute the strategic goals of the city council.

“We are so fortunate as an organization and a community to be able to bring Jennifer’s experience, expertise and incredible work ethic into the City Manager’s Office,” Woods said. “I’m excited to have her in this leadership role and to see the great things she’ll do as our assistant city manager.”
