GRU GM Bob Hunzinger Announces Plans to Resign
Published October 17th, 2013
GAINESVILLE -- Gainesville Regional Utilities General Manager Bob Hunzinger announced plans Wednesday to step down after more than 5 years on the job.
Hunzinger first came to Gainesville to take over a utility that hadn't had a permanent general manager since Mike Kurtz had resigned almost two years earlier.
During his time at GRU, Hunzinger oversaw the creation of the utility's solar feed-in tariff program, but it was his involvement as the lead negotiator in Gainesville's biomass contract that made Hunzinger a regular target at commission meetings.
Despite his announcement, Hunzinger's resignation still has to be approved by city commissioners during their regular meeting Thursday afternoon.
As part of his resignation, Hunzinger would get 20 weeks-worth of severance pay -- based on his salary, that would be more than $80,000. If approved, Hunzinger will officially step down on Nov. 15.
