City Administrator

Welcome to the City Administrator's page!  As a life-long resident proud to call Columbus my home, I am honored to serve my community in the role of City Administrator.  

The City organization, which includes all of it's employees, strive to provide efficient and effective services to our community.  It's our passion to make Columbus a great place to raise a family, work a job, or hang out and have fun!

Each month, I write a column (called "Under the Clock Tower") on the happenings, events and news related to Columbus, which is posted to this site - I invite you to have a look.

If you have any questions or concerns about the City, feel free to stop by City Hall and say hello!

- Patrick B. Vander Sanden
