Taylour Tedder to Leave May 8

In surprising news released by the City, Taylour Tedder, the current city manager has announced that he has taken another position in Rehoboth Beach, DE. Here is his statement to us regarding his departure:

BOULDER CITY – City Manager Taylour Tedder says he feels that “Boulder City is in a better place” today, after leading the community since his appointment in August 2021. He’s credited for enhancing community engagement, undertaking strategic planning initiatives, receiving the Triple Crown Award twice from the Government Finance Officers Association, and improving employee relations and recognition. He has accepted an offer to be the next City Manager of Rehoboth Beach, DE., a historic destination community known as “The Nation’s Summer Capital.”

In his tenure, Tedder ushered in several high-profile measures, including budgeting of critical ARPA funding, updating the City fleet by adding E-vehicles, developing sustainable water conservation programs, and clarifying the City’s prohibition of short term rentals. “My wife and I have loved our time in Boulder City, but an opportunity like this comes along once-in-a-lifetime,” Tedder said. “The people of Boulder City welcomed us immediately. I have enjoyed getting to know the residents, as well as working with our elected leaders, the professional city staff and the many stakeholders who make Boulder City the best place to live, work, play and retire!”

City Council gave him high marks for his efforts during his annual review on March 19, 2024. While they are happy for his opportunity to grow, they know he leaves some big shoes to fill. “By law, Boulder City operates under a strong City Manager form of government; in Taylour Tedder, we’ve had one strong leader,” said Mayor Joe Hardy. “His ability to do so much, and do it so well, has made City Council look good and we appreciate it. City Council and I are grateful for his service, congratulate him and wish him all the best in his next endeavors.”

Tedder is a graduate of Emporia State University and holds a Master of Public Administration degree from Wichita State University. He previously served as the Assistant City Manager in Leavenworth, KS, a suburb of Kansas City, MO. He has been in working municipal government leadership roles since January 2013 and is a Certified Economic Developer through International Economic Development Council. Last April, the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) awarded City Manager Tedder with its highly respected “Credentialed Manager” designation. In 2021, City Council selected him from more than 50 candidates after a six-month national search.

Tedder’s last scheduled day in Boulder City is May 8, 2024. Efforts to name an interim City Manager and recruit someone to fill the role will start later this month.

We also wish Taylour and his family the best on their move and look forward to welcoming a new city manager soon.
