City Announces Departure of City Manager Noah A. Simon

March 20, 2019

After four and a half years as Lexington’s City Manager, Noah A. Simon will be leaving his position at the end of April.

Mayor Frank W. Friedman and the Lexington City Council join in thanking Mr. Simon for his years of fine work and express gratitude to him and his family for their sacrifice during his tenure, as he worked long hours, attended countless meetings and events on behalf of the city, and carried to fruition numerous innovative projects.

“While we can’t say enough about his leadership, vision, and work ethic, we wish to thank him for the progress our community has seen during his tenure,” Mayor Friedman said. “His work to make government more responsive and efficient aided in our ability to utilize federal, state, and local resources to improve the quality of life for our residents, make technological advancements, and put millions of dollars into roadway improvements and other projects.”

During Mr. Simon’s remaining time in Lexington, he plans to complete a number of projects, including priority items in the city’s newly adopted Strategic Plan. In May, Mr. Simon will take up his next post as Assistant Town Manager of Westlake, Texas.

“As part of the team that hired Mr. Simon, I am excited about the progress and accomplishments achieved over these past four-plus years,” said Mayor Friedman. “We will miss the Simon family, and wish Noah, Jen, and Zoë all the best as they begin their next chapter in Westlake.”
