Deputy City Manager Tom Acre Takes His Talents to the "Private Sector"

COMMERCE CITY, COLO. – City Council tonight approved the appointments of James Hayes as acting deputy city manager, external services and Chris Cramer as acting community development director. Former Deputy City Manager Tom Acre’s return to the private sector last week facilitated these personnel changes.

“I want to thank Jim and Chris for their willingness to help lead the city in this time of transition,” said Interim City Manager Brian McBroom. “I know the entire management team is committed to implementing city council’s goals and serving our residents and businesses in the most effective manner possible.”

Hayes most recently served as the city’s community development director, managing a $3.5 million budget and 40 employees within four divisions. He also will continue his role as acting economic development director. As the City of Northglenn ’s Director of Planning and Development, he adopted a new comprehensive plan and also served as Northglenn ’s acting city manager and finance director during the city’s executive-level transition in 2008. An alumna of Iowa State University , Hayes has a master’s degree in city planning with the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Cramer has been the city’s planning manager for nearly a decade, when Commerce City doubled its population and annexed over 6-square-miles. During his tenure, he led the city’s zoning ordinance revisions and updated the community’s comprehensive plan. Cramer received his master’s degree in urban and regional planning from the University of Washington in Seattle .
