St. Cloud City Manager Bill Sturgeon announced at Thursday evening’s City Council meeting that Dave Tomek, former Community Development Director with Osceola County has been hired as St. Cloud’s Assistant City Manager.

According to the city, Tomek will assist Sturgeon and Deputy City Manager Veronica Miller by developing and executing sustainability strategies, developing and managing legislative priorities, coordinating intergovernmental meetings, preparing data and assisting with development of the city’s annual budget.

“I’m excited to be adding Dave to the team here at the City of St. Cloud,” Sturgeon said. “His experience and depth of knowledge will help our team elevate to an even stronger level of service for our residents. He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge that will help our team be stronger, particularly as we continue to face unprecedented growth throughout our area.”

It’s  a common thing to see Dave Tomek helping out in the KVLS building during the Osceola County Fair, always stepping up to lend a hand in whatever area is needing help.

Tomek has more than 38 years of public service, having served in Fort Myers, Maitland, and St. Charles, MO. He most recently served as the Community Development Administrator for Osceola County, where he oversaw the Planning and Design, Code Enforcement and Zoning, Development Review, Building, GIS, Parks and Public Lands, and Sports Facility and Events divisions. Mr. Tomek  holds a Master’s Degree in Urban Affairs from St. Louis University.
Congratulations to Dave Tomek, and congratulations to the City of St. Cloud and to the St. Cloud community that will undoubtedly benefit from his great amount of experience.
