Trophy Club Town Manager Mike Slye has resigned effective Saturday, January 24, 2015. Assistant Town Manager Stephen Seidel will assume the leadership position as Acting Town Manager while the Town Council assesses their options regarding filling the Town Manager position on a permanent basis.

"Staff remains focused on working hand in hand with the Town Council to continue providing high quality services and programs to our great community," said Acting Town Manager Stephen Seidel.

As a result of changing goals and objectives of the Town Council, the Town Manager and the Council mutually and amicably agreed that it was in the best interests of both parties, and the community, for the Council to proceed in a different direction with new staff leadership.

"The Council has several goals for 2015, including implementing community safety enhancements, planning for a new joint Town Hall/Police facility and continued improvements to infrastructure in town," said Mayor Nick Sanders. "With a clear plan moving forward, Council and staff will work together to accomplish Council objectives and ensure that Trophy Club residents and community partners are heard throughout the process." Mayor Sanders went on to say that, "We wish the best for Mike Slye and thank him for his service to the Trophy Club community."

Mike Slye accepted the Town Manager position in October 2010 and the Town appreciates his years of service and contributions toward making Trophy Club 'A Great Place to Call Home'.
