Kendal Francis new Coffeyville City Manager

Kendal Francis 2We wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate Kendal Francis who has been appointed the next City Manager for the City of Coffeyville. Kendal will be heading to Coffeyville in a couple of weeks, leaving his current post as City Administrator for the City of Lakin. Kendal certainly made his mark in Lakin, including his success in attracting businesses and working with Kearny County to improve service delivery and reduce expenditures. Coffeyville was particularly impressed with Kendal’s integrity and his proven ability to navigate the challenges of operating a full service city. Prior to his time in Lakin, Kendal was Director of Water/Wastewater for the City of Beloit, where he spent 20 years working for the city. Kendal is a member of the League of Kansas Municipalities Board of Directors and earned his master’s certificate of public administration from Kansas State University in 2011. Kendal officially starts his career in Coffeyville on August 3rd. Please join us in congratulating Kendal on his new position as Coffeyville City Manager.
