Following a nationwide search, the City of Cape Girardeau is excited to announce Cape Girardeau native Trevor Pulley as the City’s next Assistant City Manager and Community Development Director.
“Trevor brings skill, experience, and a heart for public service that will serve Cape Girardeau well,” said Dr. Kenneth Haskin about his most recent cabinet appointment.
Pulley will oversee the City’s Planning, Inspections, and Engineering divisions under Community Development, in addition to the Public Works Department. His role will be critical to the City’s future development and infrastructure, including ongoing street repair. The Community Development Department has reviewed approximately $497 million in public and private developments in the last five years in addition to managing the City’s Transportation Trust Fund, a special sales tax for street renovations approved every five years since 1995.
Trevor Pulley’s career began in home construction, and he has continued for over 35 years in general construction, including residential and commercial. His education includes a Bachelor of Science Degree from Southeast Missouri State University, as well as numerous certifications in computers, mobile forensics, and management. While in construction, Trevor’s career moved into law enforcement including a decade of service in the City of Cape Girardeau’s Police Department. His family moved to Dexter, Mo. in 2002 where he began rising in the ranks to Dexter Chief of Police before being appointed Dexter’s City Administrator in 2021. In Dexter, he built the City’s emergency operations center/training facility, including a new evidence room, as well as the City’s animal shelter. Recently he served in a dual role covering both city administration and inspections, due to the recent retirement of the building inspector. He will leave from Dexter this month, with his first day at the City of Cape on December 5th.
Despite his past achievements, he’ll be the first to say, “It’s not about me, it’s about Cape Girardeau.”
The City of Cape Girardeau is happy to welcome him home!
