August 20, 2014

Livermore, CA – On August 19th, the Tracy City Council appointed Livermore Assistant City Manager Troy Brown as the new City Manager of Tracy. Brown’s last day with the City of Livermore will be August 29th

“I’ve enjoyed working with Mr. Brown. He’s been a great asset for the City of Livermore and I’m anticipating him accomplishing great things for the City of Tracy,” said Livermore Mayor John Marchand.

Brown, a 20 year veteran of local government, came to Livermore in 2009 after serving in the cities of Santa Clarita, Riverside, and Elk Grove. Upon arriving in Livermore, Brown assumed interim roles as Director of Finance, and Fire Chief, assisting the City in the transition of these roles after retirements in those positions. As Assistant City Manager, Brown’s responsibilities included overseeing the City’s Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, and the City Clerk’s Office. 

“Troy is one of the most professional managers I have ever worked with,” said Marc Roberts, Livermore City Manager. “Tracy’s gain is certainly our loss and he will be missed. I am confident that he will be an asset to the City of Tracy and its residents.”

Brown attained numerous achievements during his tenure, and was integral in guiding the City through the economic recession. Brown helped Livermore identify cost-saving measures and negotiated pension reform throughout the organization, improving the City’s long-term financial outlook.  

“Livermore is a wonderful community that my family and I have made our home and it will be difficult to leave. However, becoming the City Manager of Tracy is a tremendous opportunity that I simply could not pass up and I look forward to my new role,” said Brown.  

The Assistant City Manager serves as the second-in-command for the City and is involved in every facet of running the City. The position is a key one among the staff and elected officials, and involves implementing policies set by the City Council. Brown is just one of two Assistant City Managers that have served  the City of Livermore over the past 14 years, with Brown joining the City after long-time Assistant City Manager Jim Piper retired in 2009.
