County manager to retire

Letter from Brent McFall to the Eagle County Commissioners

McFall 16

Jan. 4, 2017 – Eagle County Manager Brent McFall has announced he will retire from the organization as of Feb. 3. He has held the post since March of 2015.

In his resignation letter to the Board of County Commissioners, McFall reflected on his 40-plus years in government. “Throughout the many years I have always been sustained by a true passion for local government service, and I want to retire while that passion remains intact,” he said. “It has been my pleasure to spend these last two years as Eagle County’s county manager, which has put a nice cap on my local government experience.”

During his tenure at Eagle County, McFall shepherded a comprehensive strategic planning process which has guided county decision-making over the last 15 months.

“Brent has helped us to lay out a direction for the county for years to come,” said Commissioner Jeanne McQueeney. “His assistance in creating a strategic plan with measurable outcomes has been invaluable.”

Commissioner Kathy Chandler-Henry says McFall has been instrumental in moving the organization forward. “With his expertise, we’ve been able to define our mission, focus on our priorities and provide excellent service to all of our constituents,” she said.

“Brent is leaving the organization better than he found it. He’s had a distinguished career and we have been the beneficiaries of his wisdom and experience over the last couple of years,” said Commissioner Jill Ryan.

McFall will receive a retirement package of four months, which is commensurate with those previously offered to employees of his rank within the organization. No plans have yet been made for filling the county manager position.
