Columbus hires Hilber for program coordination

The city of Columbus has announced that it will no longer have an official city spokesperson in the department of community development and will rework the job position to focus on programs for the city.

Mayor Jim Lienhoop’s administration¬†announced today that Robin Hilber has been hired to work in the community development department as programs coordinator for the city.

The position is being reworked from its role under Mayor Kristen Brown, where the person in the job frequently acted as spokesman for the city.

Hilber has been working at Cummins, Inc. where she served as a Compliance Engineer in Purchasing Functional Excellence. Previously, she served as project manager for the Community Education Coalition.

Hilber will be responsible for coordinating and managing community development programs throughout the City of Columbus including the tax abatement application and compliance processes, oversight and compliance of local, state and federal grants, and downtown and neighborhood programs.
