City of Columbia’s human resources director, assistant health director resign

Two high-ranking City of Columbia officials have resigned from their posts in the past week.

Scott Clardy, assistant director of the Columbia/Boone County Department of Public Health and Human Services, resigned last Friday.

Richard Enyard, human resources director, resigned Monday.

City spokesperson Sydney Olsen confirmed their resignations to the Tribune on Wednesday, but declined to provide further details.

“We cannot provide information about their reasons for resigning as it is a personnel issue,” Olsen wrote in an email.

Columbia/Boone County Public Health and Human Services assistant director Scott Clardy speaks during a news conference at City Hall on efforts to control COVID-19.

Clardy has 33 years of experience in public health, as noted in his bio still accessible on the city website Wednesday.

He has worked as director of human resources at Stephens College in Columbia; chief HR consultant at RKE & Associates in Columbia; and director of human resources at the Missouri Department of Corrections in Jefferson City, among other positions.
