Grand Lake Town Manager David Hook will soon be stepping down from his position administering the shoreside community at the north end of Grand County.

His last official day will be Dec. 31, 2014. Previously Hook had been slated to complete his tenure with Grand Lake in February. He announced his resignation to the Grand Lake Board of Trustees on Aug. 10.

In a letter dated Aug. 13, Hook explained his decision to leave stating, “I need to rebalance my work and personal life, and I have come to the conclusion that I cannot do so as Town Manager in Grand Lake.”

He also stated, “This decision did not come easy. I have treasured my time as Town Manager and as a member of such a special community.”

Hook has taken a Project Manager’s position with the civil engineering consultation firm Bowman Vision Land in their Granby office. Hook received his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and received his graduate degree in organizational management.

“Most of my career has been in the public works arena; both in the private sector and the public sector. Over the years I’ve done a lot of project management work. It is an exciting transition and we are excited to be able to stay in Grand County.”

Hook had previously expressed his interest in staying in Grand County.

Before working as Town Manager for Grand Lake, Hook worked for Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Ariz.
