A search that began in March ended Monday night when the Commerce City Council voted to hire Peter J. Pyrzenski as its fourth city manager. The vote was unanimous.
Mayor Clark Hill recounted the “long and arduous process. This council has been dedicated since a retreat I called in March to find a new city manager,” he said. “… to help us continue the momentum we have to put the city in a financial position in the future so we don’t have to overburden our citizens.”
He told a handful of people in the Commerce Civic Center that the council was “very deliberate” as it went through the process of screening applications from as far away as Oregon.
