Eagle Town Council selects Larry Pardee as new town manager

Pardee has served as the town manager for Jackson, Wyoming, since 2018

The Eagle Town Council has selected Larry Pardee as the town of Eagle’s new town manager. Pardee replaces Brandy Reitter, who stepped down as town manager in early 2022 after she was appointed by Gov. Jared Polis to lead the Colorado Broadband Office.

The Town had contracted KRW Associates to conduct a nationwide search for the new town manager. As required, the Town Council will officially appoint Pardee as town manager at its June 7 meeting.

“All four finalists for the job impressed us. Larry was a standout based on his stability and longevity in local government,” said Eagle Mayor Scott Turnipseed in a news release. “His previous town manager experience also helped inform our decision.”

Pardee has served as the town manager for Jackson, Wyoming, since 2018. He has over 35 years of local government experience, including as the public works director for the town of Jackson and the manager for Vail’s streets and maintenance department. He attended the International City Managers Senior Executive Institute at the University of Virginia.

Pardee’s official start date is flexible, between Aug. 15 and Oct. 22, 2022, pending current notice requirements and availability of temporary housing.
