COMMERCE CITY, COLO. (June 17, 2020) – The City Council of Commerce City approved a resignation agreement with City Manager Brian McBroom during Monday night’s meeting. Pursuant to the agreement, McBroom would leave his role with the city in early July. Per city policy, city council will appoint an interim city manager and evaluate options for filling the vacancy permanently in the coming weeks. 

McBroom joined the city in 2008 as director of community development. He was promoted to deputy city manager and then interim city manager in 2011 before being appointed city manager by city council in April 2012. During his tenure, McBroom has overseen the administration of one of Colorado’s fastest growing cities during a period that saw transformation in the city’s public safety services, planning for the redevelopment of the Mile High Greyhound Park, and implementation of the city’s voter-approved capital improvement program. McBroom helped the city successfully complete the initial “5 projects in 5 years,” including the construction of the Bison Ridge Recreation Center, major widening projects on both Highway 2 and Tower Road, and several new parks in the city.

City Council is grateful for McBroom’s long and exemplary service to the community and wishes him well in his future endeavors.

“I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity to serve as city manager since late 2011,” McBroom said. “I’m incredibly proud of the organization’s accomplishments since that time, especially the opening of the Bison Ridge Recreation Center, positive changes to the delivery of public safety services, strong relationships with the city’s two unions, significant reductions in work related employee accidents, region leading growth and development, and a very strong financial position with healthy reserves.  The city has great employees and I was proud to serve with each of them.”
