Kent Seemann


The City of Napoleon is once again seeking a new finance director after Monday accepting the resignation of Kent Seemann, who started a month and a half ago.

Seemann gave his resignation Monday night and said he is returning to Holgate Local Schools to be treasurer, which is where he worked prior to starting at the City of Napoleon on May 6.

“I think it’s just a better fit for me in my professional life right now,” Seemann said after the meeting.

His last day at Napoleon will be June 28.

On June 10, Holgate Local Schools announced it had postponed the second-round treasurer interviews tentatively scheduled for the next day in order to extend the search process. Superintendent Kelly Meyers said at the time the board’s goal was to have a candidate recommended for hire by the June 27 board of education meeting.

Last week, Napoleon appointed two council members to the city’s personnel committee, and on Friday that committee met in executive session.
