Joe Meneghini, the No. 3 official at City Hall and a behind-the-scenes force in municipal projects for the last 11 years, intends to retire Aug. 19.

Mayor Ava Frisinger announced the retirement Thursday.

“Joe was involved with almost all projects — at some level — for more than a decade here at City Hall,” she said in a statement. “We deeply appreciate his leadership, commitment to this community and focus on long-term sustainability, which will no doubt benefit Issaquah for decades to come.”

Meneghini is the deputy to City Administrator Bob Harrison. The administrators and Frisinger oversee all municipal departments, cross-departmental projects, communications and economic development.

Meneghini’s retirement comes a little more than a year after former City Administrator Leon Kos retired after 33 years at City Hall. Frisinger hired Harrison in October after a nationwide search.

Before Meneghini joined Issaquah in 2000, he served as city manager for Woodinville and finance director for Shoreline.
