Sacramento’s economic development director resigns

The city of Sacramento’s economic development director resigned Monday.

Larry Burkhardt was hired in late 2015 from Wisconsin to replace Jim Rinehart, who had retired.

Assistant City Manager John Dangberg will take over the Economic Development Department on an interim basis. Dangberg declined to reveal details of the departure but said officials were assessing whether to hire a replacement.

Burkhardt did not respond to phone and email messages seeking comment.
