Kerry Miller, the former city manager of South Lake Tahoe, was named the city manager of Folsom on Wednesday night.
Miller, currently city manager of Encinitas in northern San Diego County, was named to the post during a special City Council meeting. He will take over the new job by Oct. 15.
Miller,55, has 30 years of municipal management experience, including 25 as city manager, 12 in South Lake Tahoe.
Folsom Mayor Andy Morin said council members were impressed with Miller's staff-development skills.
"He has the ability to work from the bottom to the top in the (organizational) chart," Morin said. "He has a real talent for mentoring employees."
Miller succeeds Martha Lofgren, who resigned after six years as city manager.
City of Folsom official website press release.
Kerry Miller wishes he was as cool as Johnny Cash. Or even as cool as Joaquin Phoenix.
