The City of Erlanger named Bill Wulfeck as its new city administrator.
Wulfeck replaces Matthew Kremer, who departed Erlanger after four and a half years to become city administrator in Fort Thomas.
“On behalf of the city council, city staff and the community, I am proud to welcome Bill Wulfeck to Erlanger,” Mayor Jessica Fette said. “Our city has a strong leadership team in place and Mr. Wulfeck’s skills complement that team. We have confidence in Mr. Wulfeck’s ability and experience to support Erlanger through what’s next.”
Wulfeck comes to the city from Sanitation District No. 1, where he was the director of asset management since 2014. His responsibilities at SD1 included overseeing development and repairing and maintaining the stormwater collection system, the wastewater treatment plants, pump stations, fleets and facilities.
“I’m excited to join the team at the City of Erlanger,” Wulfeck said. “Everyone I have met has been very open and welcoming. I am looking forward to working in an environment where there is such a passion for public service and making a positive contribution to the success of Erlanger.”
Wulfeck grew up in Northern Kentucky, graduating from Covington Catholic High School. He has a Bachelor of Science in chemistry with a minor in biology from Northern Kentucky University, and a Master of Science in environmental science from the University of Cincinnati. He lives in Edgewood.
Wulfeck has more than 34 years of experience in the water and wastewater utility sector, and has held prior leadership roles with Kentucky American Water and Northern Kentucky Water District.
Wulfeck starts his new role on Oct. 3.
