ST. CHARLES – St. Charles City Administrator Mark Koenen has announced he will retire in May at the end of his contract with the city.

Koenen was appointed to his post in 2013 after serving as public works director for 23 years. He replaced former city administrator Brian Townsend who left the city to become Schaumburg's village manager.

“I would like to thank Mayor Raymond Rogina and members of the City Council, both past and present, for the guidance they have provided me throughout my time at the City,” Koenen said in a news release from the city of St. Charles. “And I appreciate city staff for their dedication to serving the citizens of St. Charles. As a longtime resident of St. Charles, I was proud to work for my community and am grateful for the many opportunities I was given over the course of my career.”

Rogina lauded Koenen for the job he has done.

“I have been told many times that hiring Mark as city administrator was one of my best decisions," he said in the release. "I agree wholeheartedly. His acumen in managing a wide variety of issues made him the ideal individual to administer the executive policies of the City Council. St. Charles is a better place today because of Mark Koenen.”
