Email from City of Puyallup Finance Director Cliff Craig to city staff on Wednesday:
“To all employees:
As acting City Manager, I want to inform you that Ralph has expressed to the Council his intention to retire. The details of his retirement have yet to be formed, however, the Human Resource department has begun to work with an executive search firm to find an interim city manager. Until such time an interim is appointed, I will continue to serve as acting city manager.
