Charles Boulard appointed interim city manager

(March 13, 2007) Ypsilanti City manager Ed Koryzno has taken a four to six week leave of absence for medical reasons effective immediately.

In a statement released to city council, Koryzno said he had been readmitted to St. Joseph’s hospital last Thursday and that he was suffering from anemia. After extensive diagnosis, Koryzno said a growth was discovered and he underwent surgery on Monday to remove the non-malignant growth.

Mayor Schreiber at Tuesday’s City Council meeting announced the Mr. Koryzno had his gall bladder removed.

Koryzno had first been been admitted to St. Joseph’s hospital several weeks ago for overnight observation. He was back to work the next Monday.

Koryzno said, “We are in the midst of preparing next year’s budget and key administrative positions are vacant, so I hope to return to work as soon as possible.”

Originally Mr. Koryzno thought he would be out for two weeks. Now he is expecting to be out four to six weeks. Koryzno had earlier said that newly hired City Clerk Rebecca Bintz, would become Acting City Manager during his absence. Bintz is the only employee in the City Clerk’s office. Frances McMullan, who was hired as the new deputy clerk, won’t start until March 19th. McMullan was working in the Clerk’s office in the City of Ann Arbor.

Koryzno announced today that he is instead appointing Building Department manager Charles Boulard as Interim City Manager.

We at YpsiNews.com hope that Mr. Koryzno makes a speedy recovery and our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
