Charlotte Mayor Anthony Fox and the City Council announced Monday that Julie Burch will serve as Interim City Manager while the search process for a new City Manager is underway.
Currently an Assistant City Manager for the City of Charlotte, Burch is responsible for environment, neighborhoods, and housing activities for the City. Burch led the development of the City's first Focus Area Plan for the Environment as well as annual updates.
She is the lead staff member for two City Council Committees, Environment and Housing, and Neighborhood Development. She also chairs a multi-disciplinary staff team to develop and implement environmental policies and programs and represents the City in several regional environmental initiatives related to sustainability.
She leads a team comprised of internal City departments and external service agency representatives working together to best leverage information and resources to improve Charlotte's quality of life.
Burch joined the City of Charlotte in 1987. She began her full-time public service career with the City of Phoenix, Arizona. She served Phoenix for twelve years, the last three as the Assistant Management and Budget Director.
"Julie's experience and familiarity with City operations make her a great choice to serve as Interim City Manager," said Mayor Anthony Foxx. "She knows the organization well and will keep us moving forward while we find a permanent replacement."
The Interim Manager is not an applicant for the City Manager position. The application period is December 18 through January 18.
