After a distinguished 18-year career with the City of Fruit Heights, City Manager Brandon Green has announced his retirement, effective May 2023.
Green has 30 years of experience in the public service sector. He first joined Fruit Heights in 2004 as the Building Inspector and Zoning Administrator. In 2005, he was appointed City Manager by the Mayor and City Council. Green has served four mayors and is the longest serving city manager in the City’s history. Before coming to Fruit Heights, Green worked for Layton City in the Community and Economic Development Office as a building inspector.
“Fruit Heights is home. This is where I was raised, and this is where my heart has been, and I am proud to have had the opportunity to serve the people of Fruit Heights over the last 18 years,” said Green. “I am thankful for the many years of working with the residents, colleagues and volunteers, and I am fortunate to have been a part of this city’s outstanding staff. Together, we have accomplished a lot. I am also thankful to the many mayors and city council members whom I have had the opportunity to work with, for their support and trust as we have worked together through many difficult and challenging issues. Lastly, I’m thankful to my wife for her love, support and encouragement.”
As city manager, Green oversees approximately 10 employees and is responsible for the delivery of all city services, including building and development, human resources, public works, finance, utilities and technology. Green built strategic relationships with the city’s community partners, and played a significant role in numerous large projects, including the revitalization of Gailey Trail and Nicholls Park, and the development of the Fruit Loops Mountain Bike Trail.
“Brandon has helped guide our city through many complex issues while maintaining exceptional City services,” said Mayor John Pohlman. “He is a highly respected municipal leader and has built collaborative partnerships in our region that have greatly benefited our city. The council, myself and all the previous elected officials would like to thank Brandon and wish him the best in his well-earned retirement.”
