David Miller, who has worked as the City of North Bend’s Interim City Administrator since January 16, 2020, was named to the permanent position. North Bend City Council voted unanimously for Miller during the May 5th Council meeting.
Miller, who joined the team in mid-2017 as the Community and Economic Development Director, moved into the role of Interim City Administrator after Mark Rigos made the decision to return to his previous position as the City’s Deputy City Administrator and Public Works Director.

I am confident that his experience and understanding of North Bend will continue to provide me and the City the stability needed to accomplish the large workload and service delivery our residents expect from us,” Mayor Rob McFarland said.
