Granby selects new town manager

Ted Cherry

Granby’s next town manager comes from South Dakota.

Ted Cherry will begin on Jan. 20, according to his employment agreement, which was signed by Cherry on Dec. 12 and approved by the town board Tuesday night.

Cherry has been the city administrator for North Sioux City, South Dakota, since 2016. Before that, he held the same position in Leoti, Kansas.

The Granby Board of Trustees extended an offer to Cherry at the Dec. 10 town meeting. His employment contact outlines a salary of $120,000.

Cherry was selected from 47 applications for the position, which was narrowed down to five finalists. One of the finalists, Brian Bender, withdrew his application after looking into housing in Granby.

The town manager position has been vacant since October when Aaron Blair resigned his position. He held the role for over two years.
