Grand Rapids City Manager Kurt Kimball retiring after 22-year career

After managing the city's day-to-day operations for nearly 22 years, City Manager Kurt Kimball announced today he will retire at the end of the year.

"I really am choosing to go at a good time for me and for the city," said Kimball, 58.

Kimball will leave a city government that has become smaller and leaner over the past seven years as City Hall has struggled to deal with a shrinking manufacturing base, cuts in state revenue-sharing funds and rising health care costs
