Steve Stamey, Town Administrator for the Town of Lochbuie, was awarded the 2013 Town Manager of the Year by the Colorado City and County Management Association at its annual conference on February 20th in Glenwood Springs.
This is a sought after and prestigious award given to only one town/city manager from the State of Colorado, which includes 64 counties and 271 municipalities each year. “The Town of Lochbuie has done a complete turnaround in the past two years, thanks to a smart, dedicated and conscientious man,” stated Lochbuie Mayor Pro-Tem Candace Veldhuizen, who nominated Stamey.
Town Administrator Stamey’s noted accomplishments include reducing the Town’s $1.2 million dollar budget deficit in an 18-month period, contracting services for maintaining the Town’s water and wastewater plants resulting in large cost savings, and continuing work at rebuilding and strengthening relationships with neighboring communities.
Steve Stamey is a resident of Longmont and has a professional background in community planning and management for several Northern Colorado communities. He has served as the Planning and Community Development Director of Estes Park, Erie and Steamboat Springs. It is our pleasure to continue to work with Steve and all the dedicated staff and elected officials in this growing Town.
