Larry Bohrer has worked as a civil engineer in TKDA’s municipal department his entire professional career, holding many positions, including division vice president. After 43 years of great work, he is retiring at the end of this year.

In honor of his retirement, he received a special honor from one of his long-time clients, the City of Columbus.

At their recent city council meeting, an official resolution was passed, thanking Larry for his 15 years of services to their community. Columbus Mayor David Povolny read the following resolution:


A Resolution of Appreciation to Larry Bohrer City Engineer for His 15 Years of Service
to the City of Columbus

WHEREAS, Larry began his distinguished career with the Town of Columbus and was an instrumental part of Columbus’ incorporation to a City; and

WHEREAS, Larry spent countless hours working on City projects, assisting developers, business owners, property owners and residents answering questions on a wide variety of engineering and City issues all with a professional and calm demeanor; and

WHEREAS, Larry has always been known as a great team player, a strong project manager, and especially for his extraordinary commitment to customer service; and

WHEREAS to his fellow City consultants and the City Council Larry was known to have a smile on his face and a willingness to help no matter the request made of him; and

WHEREAS, Larry and his wife (Sue) have plans to travel and explore new places by ship, train and car; and

WHEREAS, we extend our best wishes upon his retirement and for continued success in his life’s pursuit; and

WHEREAS, Larry will be retiring in December 2015 after many years of commendable dedication to the City of Columbus.

NOW THEREFORE, this Council does hereby confer upon Larry Bohrer

Its highest appreciation for the manner in which he has performed his duties in the City of Columbus with special thanks for his professionalism, dedication to service and kindness to the members of the Columbus City Council, its City Staff members, and the residents of Columbus.

Signed by Mayor David J. Povolny and City Administrator Elizabeth Mursko.


“Engineering has been a great profession where I have been able to provide good roads, safe drinking water, sewage treatment systems, and stormwater control for people and communities,” Larry said. “Years ago I had realized that engineering is what I do, but a public servant is who I am.”

TKDA strongly believes in succession planning, and Dennis Postler, Vice President of Municipal Services, has worked closely with Larry to provide seamless services to all his clients. Dennis will take over as City Engineer for Columbus in January.

“The Municipal Division is in good hands with Dennis at the helm,” Larry said.

Happy retirement Larry!
