The City of Tracy announced Wednesday evening that the City Council will appoint Troy Brown, 47, as the new city manager

Brown, currently assistant city manager for Livermore, has 20 years of municipal experience including serving as assistant to the city manager in Elk Grove and assistant to the city manager in Riverside.

The council looked at 42 applicants provided by the recruitment firm of Peckham and McKenney and interviewed five candidates in person on July 18 and 19.

"The Council is very excited with our choice of Mr. Brown. He understands Tracy and sees what we see in the opportunities and challenges here,” Mayor Brent Ives wrote in a statement to the Press. "He is an accomplished manager with a spotless record of public service, bringing with him valuable skills and knowledge which will help Tracy move forward into the future.”

The city council terminated the contract of former city manager Leon Churchill on March 5. 

The council offered Brown a salary of $205,000 and will discuss and approve his contract at the next regular meeting Tuesday. If the contract is approved, Brown will start work on September 2.
