SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — Summit County Manager Tom Fisher has been tapped by Frisco in Colorado to become its next town manager.
Frisco lies on the banks of Dillon Reservoir, in between Breckenridge, Keystone, and Copper Mountain.
Fisher has worked for Summit County since 2015, managing its administrative functions — among them a budget of roughly $65 million and over 320 employees.
Before his time in Summit County, Fisher held several leadership roles in Mesa County, Colorado — home of Grand Junction.
He has also served in leadership positions in the Utah Army National Guard and Army National Guard. His 32-year military career included a deployment to Iraq, relief efforts for hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and support for the 2002 Winter Olympics.
Fisher told the Summit County Council about his resignation this week and plans to work through the end of the month.
Earlier this week, it was announced that John Angell will be the next public works director for the county.
Angell has been serving as the deputy public works director since 2020, although he’s worked for the county for over 20 years. Angell will succeed Derrick Radke who is retiring from the Public Works Department this December. The two will split the role and responsibilities until then.
