Mark Anderson, Heber City Manager, has accepted a new position with Zions Bank Public Finance as a Municipal Finance Relationship Manager, VP effective next week. Anderson’s last day with Heber City will be May 21.
His primary job duties will entail being a financial advisor to governmental entities that are issuing debt and will be working out of the Zion's Corporate headquarters in Salt Lake.
Anderson was appointed in March 1990 as the Heber City Recorder and Finance Director by then Mayor Scott Wright when the population of Heber City was less than 5,000 people. Since that time, Anderson has seen the population of Heber City swell to approximately 16,000 people.
Anderson was asked by the Heber City Council to become the first City Manager of Heber City in October 1998.
During his tenure at Heber City Manger, Anderson was instrumental in significant projects such as:
• Valley Station development (Boyer project)
• Red Ledges development
• 2002 Olympics Community Celebration
• Public Safety Building Construction
• Public Works building construction and current expansion
• Power Industrial Park development
• Airport Improvements
• Main Street beautification
“It has truly been a blessing for our family to be able to live and work in such a fantastic community. I have met many good people that live in this community that are the core of what makes Heber City such a desirable place to live,” Anderson told the Wave. “I cannot imagine a better City to be a City Manager in. I wish the new City Manager, City staff and the City Council much success as they continue to guide our City.
