Job Description Town Manager
Town of Frisco, CO
The Town of Frisco, Colorado, is a mountain resort community, and home-rule municipality, located in Summit County, Colorado. Frisco’s population is approximately 3,000 full-time residents, not counting second-home owners and visitors. Frisco resides in the heart of world-class Colorado recreation, has a solid economic base, and an excellent school district. The Town is positioned west of the Denver metropolitan area along the I-70 corridor, allowing residents to access major-city amenities, yet is surrounded by major ski areas, lakes, and other outdoor attractions.
The Town is seeking to replace a long-term successful town manager who has taken a position as city manager in a larger city.
The Town of Frisco operates under the Council/Manager form of government. The elected Town Council is primarily responsible for the creation of policies, goals and objectives, and the Town Manager manages the day-to-day operations of the organization as well as translates the Council’s vision and goals into budgetary priorities and operational objectives. The Town Manager is expected to be active and involved in local and regional associations and partnerships.
The Town Manager will lead a municipal organization of approximately 70 FTE. Town departments include Administration (which includes General Government, Town Clerk and Human Resources), Finance, Marketing and Special Events, Recreation, Community Development, Police and Public Works. The Town’s 2011 operating budget is more than $13,000,000, including various capital projects. Reporting to the Town Council in a Council/Manager form of government, the Town Manager is the leader of the Town’s management team, and works closely with the Town Council in policy implementation as well as providing excellent Town services. The Town Manager must be accountable, responsive to issues, and able to provide leadership and direction to Town departments. The Town Council expects the Town Manager to keep the Council’s momentum, priorities, and vision intact, and help to build on the Council’s success. The anticipated appointment of the new Town Manager is late fall, 2011, with a start date in January, 2012.
Candidates should possess demonstrated management and leadership skills, excellent communication skills, high integrity, and the ability to promote and lead excellence in Town services. A bachelor’s degree in a related area is required, with a master’s degree in business administration, finance, public administration, management, or a related field strongly preferred. Candidates must have a minimum of seven years of progressively responsible public administration experience, including experience as a town, county, or city manager, assistant town or city manager, or municipal department head (service director). The 2012 salary is negotiable up to $120,000, depending on qualifications (DOQ), plus an excellent benefit package.
