CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA -Charlottesville Deputy City Manager Mike Murphy announced his retirement today after 25 years of working for the City.

“My time with the City of Charlottesville has been more rewarding than I could have ever imagined,” said Murphy. “It was a privilege to have served, and been touched by, so many lives. I am incredibly grateful to my family who supported me, and those who have worked alongside me to make the organization and community a better place.”

Murphy was named Deputy City Manager for Human Services in July 2019 supervising the City’s Human Services, Social Services, Parks & Recreation, and Transit departments.

“I want to thank Mike Murphy for his years of dedication and service to this community,” said Richardson. “We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
