Kansas City, MO - Troy Schulte announced he will retire in 2020 after serving as KCMO city manager for 10 years, and not seek an extension of his contract with the city, which expires at the end of February. 

Schulte has been city manager since 2009, first on an interim basis, and then getting the job permanently two years later.

He started his career at KCMO city hall in the budget department 21 years ago, working his way up to director of that department in 2003.

Key events during Schulte's tenure as the city's chief administrator include the creation of the streetcar system, groundbreaking on the new terminal at Kansas City International Airport and passage of an infrastructure package worth $800 million.

Schulte said he has no plans beyond his retirement date, other than spending more time with family.
