The City of Huntsville reports that they are pleased to announce that Aron Kulhavy has been selected to serve as the City’s next City Manager. The Huntsville City Council made the selection official at their June 5 meeting following the closed session. In support, all nine members seconded the motion to approve a contract for his appointment.

Kulhavy has served as the Interim City Manager for the City of Huntsville since Matt Benoit’s move to the City of Jupiter, Florida, in February, and has been with the City overall for almost ten years. He previously held positions as the Director of Community and Economic Development with responsibilities including oversight of the Inspections, Planning, Main Street, and Support Services Divisions, and, when joining the City in 2008, as the City Planner. He spoke this spring about his hopes for the City while then serving as Interim.

Kulhavy holds a Bachelors Degree in Environmental Science and a Masters in Public Administration, both from Stephen F. Austin University. He hails from Nacogdoches, where he began his career in municipal government at the City of Nacogdoches.
