PINELLAS PARK – With several key city staff members retiring, new department heads are gearing up to fill several important roles in Pinellas Park.

Tom Shevlin, former community development administrator and assistant city manager, retired in October. Patrick Murphy, formerly the city’s assistant community development administrator, has stepped up to fill Shevlin’s shoes in community development, but will not become the city’s new assistant city manager.

Meanwhile, Tom Nichols, public works administrator, will retire this month. He’ll be replaced by Bart Diebold, who formerly worked for Pinellas County.

City Manager Michael Gustafson announced in April that he will retire in January. Doug Lewis, the city’s fire chief, and Capt. Mike Haworth, the police department’s second in command, shared the role of co-interim assistant city manager for several months while vying for the city manager position. Currently, Lewis is the only one in the running for the job.

Shevlin joined the zoning division as a director in 1986. He became assistant community development administrator in 1997, and then community development director and assistant city manager in 2003.

Nichols began working for the city in 1982 as an equipment operator. That same year, he was promoted to sign fabricator, then eventually to traffic division supervisor in 1989, traffic director in 1999 and public works administrator in 2004.

Gustafson began his career with the city 23 years ago as a senior trades inspector. He was then promoted to building division director, community development administrator, assistant city manager and finally, city manager, a position he’s held for the past 10 years.
