Beloit City Attorney and Deputy City Manager Elizabeth Krueger will serve as interim city manager when current City Manager Lori Curtis Luther departs in August.

On Monday, the Beloit City Council appointed Krueger as interim city manager effective Aug. 5, according to a news release from the city.

Krueger was hired by the city in 2006. She has served as the city attorney since 2014 and as deputy city manager since 2015. Krueger began supervising the human resources department in 2018. Krueger has a breadth of knowledge that spans all operational areas of the city government, according to the release.

“City Attorney Krueger will bring stability and continuity while we initiate the search for the next city manager,” said City Council President Regina Dunkin. “The process will involve public participation and opportunities for community input. The first step will be the selection of a professional recruitment firm to assist the City Council.

Krueger has had a direct impact on all city-related projects and has served as acting city manager as needed.

“I implicitly trust City Attorney Krueger to protect the interests of the organization and the community at large,” Luther said.

Krueger has lived in the Beloit area for 16 years and is intimately familiar with the community and is deeply invested in its success, the news release from the city stated.

Luther announced earlier this month that she has accepted a position as city manager of Overland Park, Kansas. Luther’s home town is Olathe, Kansas, which is near Overland Park and she still has family living in the area.

Luther was hired as Beloit city manager on June 1, 2015.
