CORAL SPRINGS, FL – The city’s Development Service Director Susan Hess Krisman retired on Friday after 44 years of service, making her the longest-serving employee in the city’s history.  

City officials announced her retirement last week, saying Krisman was credited with the formation of the Coral Springs Community Redevelopment Agency, as well as the development of the city’s architectural guidelines, code ordinances, and public art program.

“She is a true public servant,” City Manager Frank Babinec said in a news release. “She has left an indelible mark on this community and deserves to enjoy what retirement has to offer.”

The City of Coral Springs was chartered in 1963. Krisman began working at the city in 1976.

In recent years, Krisman led the Bloomberg Philanthropies $1 million Public Art grant program after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School tragedy, officials said in the release.

She was a part of city teams that over the years earned many awards including two Florida Sterling Awards and the 2007 Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award, the release said.

“On behalf of the residents, businesses, and visitors, we thank Susie for her service,” Babinec said.

Krisman could not be reached on Sunday for comment.
