Folsom city manager announces retirement
Folsom City Manager Kerry Miller, 60, recently announced that he will retire on Oct.15 after five years in Folsom’s top administrative post and 30 additional years in municipal management.
He cited a desire to spend more time with his family, including his 13 grandchildren.
“The City Council will meet in closed session next week to discuss how we want to proceed,” said Mayor Andy Morin. “We are very sorry to lose such a high caliber city manager. We wish he would stay longer, but we wish him all the best and thank him for all he did to prepare the city for the future.”
“I have appreciated the opportunity to serve as Folsom’s city manager,” said Miller. “While the decision to leave was difficult, I am ready to explore a new phase of my life. I know that Folsom will continue to thrive and retain its designation as one of the best places to live and work. I am confident that I leave the city in the good hands of quality professionals who will carry on Folsom’s tradition of excellent governance.”
Miller noted that he is proud of all that has been accomplished during his tenure, including completion of Folsom Lake Crossing, the Sutter Street Revitalization Project and South of Highway 50 Specific Plan.
“I am also pleased with how we all came together to address the city’s budget challenges over the past four years while maintaining the overall quality of our public services,” said Miller. “Folsom is and will remain a great community because of the quality of its leadership, the dedication of employees and the involvement of our citizens.”
Miller is a 35-year member of the International City Management Association. Prior to his arrival in Folsom, he served 25 years as a city manager for three California cities – Sanger, South Lake Tahoe and Encinitas.
