Kristyne Bollier will complete the Place 6 term of former Cedar Park City Council member Don Tracy after City Council appointed her during a special-called meeting Aug. 20.

Bollier was sworn in Aug. 20 and recently served on the city’s Bond Advisory Task Force and has also served on the city’s Tourism Advisory Board. Bollier has lived in Cedar Park for six years and has worked with Cisco Systems Inc. for nine years, most recently as a senior manager.

“As the demographics and population of Cedar Park change and grow, I believe my varied background and experience will bring new perspectives, skill sets and diversity to the council,” Bollier said in a statement. “The experience of serving on the Bond Advisory Task Force was invaluable and gave me the opportunity to see all aspects of the city’s operations and future needs.”

Bollier said one of her priorities as a council member is attracting high-tech companies and startup firms to Cedar Park, such as LiveOps. On July 30, the cloud-based software company announced it would move its corporate headquarters to Cedar Park from Redwood, California.

“Cedar Park should also be a magnet for cutting-edge businesses that can provide meaningful employment and partnership opportunities,” Bollier said.

Council appointed Bollier after interviewing nine candidates for the Place 6 seat. Bollier’s partial term will expire in May.

Tracy, the former Place 6 council member, was first elected in 2010. Tracy left the positon July 23, citing a conflict between Thursday council meetings and class times for his Texas State University doctoral program in the fall.
