CONTACT: Bill Hurtley
Mayor, City of Evansville
DATE: May 14, 2021
After a 7-year tenure as Evansville Community Development Director, Jason Sergeant has been appointed City Administrator by Mayor Bill Hurtley and the City Council. He was selected from a group of two dozen candidates in a national search.
“We are very pleased to have Jason appointed to the City Administrator position,” said Mayor Hurtley. “He brings a wide variety of knowledge and ability to the needs of the City.” Hurtley noted the passion and talent Sergeant has brought to the City’s leadership. “It’s important to hire and retain great employees as the City grows.”
In his work with the City to date, Jason has been integral to promoting Evansville as a sought-after community in which to live. A champion for walkability, he led and saw the completion of the City’s first multi-use trail projects (segments now exist along Allen Creek and on the west side).
In the aftermath of a devastating fire at the Night Owl Bar and Grill on Main Street in 2018, Sergeant coordinated a $250,000.00 grant from the State to help a local developer rebuild an historically appropriate building on the site in less than 24 months.
His input throughout the JC McKenna Middle School project helped maintain the institution at the heart of this community. Last year Jason assembled a committee to assist local business owners through the financial instability of a pandemic shutdown, making loan and grant funds swiftly available to those in need.
Jason volunteered for two years with AmeriCorps before he and his family moved to Evansville. He holds a masters degree in architecture with urban design specialization. Through AmeriCorps he worked with federal agencies and managed major infrastructure projects for a city in the Columbia River Valley
Mayor Hurtley added, “Jason understands where the City has been, what its current needs are, and he brings a sense of humor and pragmatic optimism into the City’s future efforts. We are pleased to promote him to new challenges.”
