Subject: There'll be a new CM in Loveland
Good morning everyone,
About eight hours ago, at a few minutes before 2:00 AM the City Council voted 9-0 that my
contract will terminated (without cause) on June 30. It’s time for a “different direction”.
It’s been an honor to serve Loveland as City Manager. I really appreciate all the support from
the great community of city managers in northern Colorado.
I will spend the last three weeks here working through an orderly transition to an interim City
Manager, yet to be named. During that time, I hope to see many of you – starting with lunch
tomorrow in Berthoud.
My thanks to all of you for being great fellow professionals and friends -
William D. Cahill
