Peter Italiano, Red Lodge Community Development Director, has resigned. Mayor Mike Schoenike broke the news during the council meeting on Tuesday. Schoenike was informed about Italiano’s decision several weeks ago and said he made an “attempt” to get him to stay.
“I’m sorry I was not able to convince him to stay,” said Schoenike.
In responding to the news, council member Maryvette Labrie said it was “A huge loss for the city.”
Public Works Director Jim Bushman called Italiano “a fantastic person” and said he is “unequalled to anyone else since I’ve worked for the city, far beyond anyone else in that position in terms of the quality work he does and the knowledge he has.”
“This will set back public works and the infrastructure,” said Bushnell.
Italiano declined to comment about his resignation. He will leave his post Nov. 22.
