City Manager Ken Pulskamp submitted his letter of resignation to the Mayor and City Council today, signaling the end of his 25 year career with the City of Santa Clarita, effective December, 2012.
Pulskamp will be retiring after 35 years in city management, the last 10 years as City Manager for Santa Clarita. He came to Santa Clarita in 1988 as the Assistant City Manager. In 2002, he was appointed as Santa Clarita’s second City Manager.
Pulskamp, the city’s 17th employee, will be leaving the City on a high note. Over the last four years, he successfully guided the city through the recession ensuring financial stability, continuation of programs and services for residents, lowered crime rates, and completion of major capital improvement projects. Under Pulskamp’s leadership, Santa Clarita has a 100% track record for an on-time, balanced budget with a 16% reserve fund.
