Ideally situated just 25 minutes from Denver and 20 minutes from Boulder, the Town of Erie, Colorado, is a great place to call home. Erie is a community which recognizes the importance of conserving and enhancing its historic small town character, the roots from which it grew, preserving the natural environment in which it resides; a caring community which offers its residents an environment in which to seek a high quality of life; a balanced community with a diverse range of housing, employment, educational, shopping and recreational opportunities; and a vital community which provides financial and social support for quality of life programs.
Erie is a statutory municipality operating under the town board-town administrator form of government. The Board of Trustees consists of seven members, including the Mayor, and serves as the legislative and governing body of the Town, while the Town Administrator administers the day-to-day operations of the Town. The Board appoints the Town Administrator, Town Attorney, and Municipal Court Judge. The new Town Administrator will find Erie a welcoming community with highly engaged citizens, an extremely talented staff, and a high level of trust and support between the staff and Board of Trustees.
The Town is searching for an experienced, transparent, ethical, and visionary leader with a passion for local government who will take a high functioning organization to the next performance level and maintain an already high level of morale. The ideal candidate will be politically astute without being political and will have a proven record of successful accomplishments and strong leadership skills. The selected candidate must hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university with major coursework in public administration or business administration, supplemented by graduate study in public administration or a related field; a master’s degree in public administration, business administration and/or other advanced level executive training such as ICMA Credentialed Manager certification is preferred. Any combination of education and experience that demonstrates the ability to perform the necessary requirements of the job will be considered.
