Mount Angel City Administrator Susan Muir has accepted a position with the League of Oregon Cities.

She said her start date is yet to be “determined so that we can ensure a smooth transition for the city of Mount Angel.

“I was not looking to move on, but this was a unique and rare opportunity that connects my experience and knowledge with a great job where I can use my skills at a statewide level, which is exciting to me,” Muir said.

She will be the member services director with the League of Oregon Cities. The League of Oregon Cities was founded 1925 and has the mission of being a collective voice of Oregon cities and the best source of information and training for cities.

“I am proud of work that has been accomplished in Mount Angel over the (last) few years.”  she said.

Among the accomplishments she noted are: reinventing the budget document to be goal-oriented clear and easy to use; resurfacing Taylor Street; several sidewalk projects and park upgrades including the new Saalfeld Family Park and the upcoming Ebner Park rehabilitation project for which Mount Angel received almost $200,000 in state grant money.

“The mayor and city council are great to work with, the staff is absolutely top notch, the city is a beautiful place to live and I know things will continue to move onward and upward for Mount Angel,” she said.

Muir said she will miss walking up the Abbey hill, listening to the Donaumusikanten at Oktoberfest and riding in the 4th of July parade in a military jeep owned by Kay and Mark Wiesner.

She started at the city in April 2010.
