A pair of top level administrators are leaving Lawrence City Hall.
Ed Mullins, the city's finance director, is retiring on Oct. 1, and Assistant City Manager Cynthia Wagner is leaving July 11 to become the city administrator for De Soto, City Manager David Corliss announced.
Mullins has served as the city's chief financial officer for the last 23 years, overseeing everything from bond purchases to utility billing operations for the city. Corliss said the city will seek to fill the position by the end of the summer in order to facilitate a smooth transition.
Corliss announced that Casey Toomay, who has served as the city's budget manager, has been promoted to an assistant city manager. Corliss also announced Brandon McGuire has been hired to fill the position of assistant to the city manager. McGuire previously was a budget and management analyst for Sedgwick County.
