City Administrator Joe Parente said “I am excited to start as City Administrator in 2017 and continue the efforts to improve City government. I appreciate the hard work of our staff, past City Administrator Lauren Palmer, Interim City Administrator Kirk Davis, volunteers and elected officials in 2016. Parkville is a small community with big ambitions. It is incredible to realize how much was accomplished this past year with a modest staff and budget.
