Killeen Executive Director of Human Resources Debbie Maynor submitted her letter of resignation to the city.

After 14 years with the city, Maynor’s last day will be June 30, officials confirmed Wednesday.

“Ms. Maynor has been a tremendous asset to our leadership team and organization. We thank her for her dedicated service and wish her a very happy retirement,” Killeen City Manager Glenn Morrison said.

Earlier this year, Maynor was one of five finalists for assistant city manager-internal services, a $130,000-a-year position for which Ann Farris was hired Jan. 8.

In her current position, Maynor earns $117,316 a year and is eligible for retirement benefits, said Hilary Shine, city spokeswoman.

Shine did not give details on why the 56-year-old city executive chose to retire. Maynor was not available for comment.

Maynor was hired in 1999 as head of the Human Resources Department after a long history of working in human resources with the state, Shine said.

Maynor is responsible for overseeing personnel matters for more than 1,226 city employees. Her duties include employee relations, recruiting, training, benefits, payroll, wellness programs, policy development, worker’s compensation, safety programs and risk management.

She is a graduate of the University of Maryland and Tarleton State University, where she earned a master’s in business administration, according to the Texas Municipal Human Resources Association website.
