[ARCHIVED] Chase Schrage Named New Cedar Falls Public Works Director


The Cedar Falls City Council has approved the appointment of Chase Schrage as the new Cedar Falls Public Works Director. Schrage had been the city’s Principal Engineer for the past six and half years and has 10 years of experience in municipal government.

“We are excited about the experience Chase brings to the position,” said Cedar Falls City Administrator Ron Gaines. “His vision and enthusiasm to improve the city will be a valuable asset in continuing the great economic and industrial growth Cedar Falls has experienced in the last several years.”

Originally from Allison, Iowa, Schrage attended Iowa State University where he graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering.

“I pursued Civil Engineering because I have a great passion for problem solving,” said Schrage. “I enjoy serving the community, public infrastructure, and seeing projects completed.”

 Schrage is replacing Mark Ripplinger, who will be retiring in January 2020. Currently the two are working together to ensure a smooth transition.

“It’s an exciting time in Cedar Falls,” said Schrage. “There is a lot of growth and development in the community and I’m looking forward to continuing my career with the city.”
