Clarkston’s City Manager to Retire

Keith Barker, who has served as Clarkston’s City Manager for the past 7 years, plans to retire in December 2018.  The City made this announcement during the Tuesday, July 31, 2018 City Council Work Session.  Barker was hired, as Clarkston’s first City Manager, in 2011 and has served as an effective and productive public servant for 38 years. “I have been very fortunate to have worked with a long list of dedicated elected officials throughout my career, all of which have given their time to make their communities better and to serve their constituents,” Barker said during the announcement. “I would especially like to thank the many hard working and capable public employees that I have had the pleasure to work alongside throughout my career in public service.” During Barker’s tenure and leadership, the City has completed and initiated several major construction and infrastructure improvement projects that include, renovating Milam Park, Milam Pool construction, redevelopment of Friendship Forest Wildlife Sanctuary, City Hall Annex Historic Restoration and most recently the City has started construction on a $6.5 million-dollar City Center Streetscape Project.  Barker also successfully led annexations that increased Clarkston’s land mass and population by 66%. “Keith came to Clarkston and helped turn this city around,” said Mayor Ted Terry. “He has brought vigorous professionalism to our operations, fiscal sustainability to the budget, and deployed innovative strategies that have elevated our communities to new heights. He will be sorely missed, but greatly appreciated for leaving Clarkston better off than he found it.”
