West Sacramento City Manager Toby Ross Retires July 13 | News
City Manager Toby Ross will retire July 13, 2012, following a decade of outstanding service to West Sacramento. He will be replaced by Martin Tuttle, former Executive Director of the Sacramento Area Council of Governments.
Mr. Ross served as West Sacramento’s City Manager since November 2002. Mr. Ross managed many projects and programs that have improved the quality of life for residents and workers in West Sacramento and have positioned the City for an enhanced and respected role in the region. His accomplishments include major retail development in the north and south ends of the City, with anchor tenants such as IKEA, Wal Mart, Nugget and Target; the development of the City’s downtown into a vibrant government center encompassing City Hall, the Arthur F. Turner Yolo County Library, a satellite facility for Sacramento City College and a City Community Center. The City’s aggressive flood protection program was developed and advanced under Mr. Ross as well as major infrastructure projects in support of the Bridge District, an intense urban riverfront development south of Tower Bridge. Mr. Ross also served as the Executive Director for the Port of West Sacramento.
Mayor Christopher Cabaldon has said, “Toby Ross is one the West’s most highly regarded city managers, and for good reason. He has been pivotal to our city’s transformation as he delivered project after project while running a tight fiscal ship and fostering a City Hall where talented, passionate people can get things done. We will miss Mr. Ross dearly, but today I’m just grateful that West Sacramento has had the exceptional good fortune of his leadership for a decade. Now our city says, ‘thank you’ and ‘best wishes for a much-deserved retirement’.”
