Fairfax’s new town manager, Garrett Toy, will start in his new position on Feb. 4.
The Fairfax Town Council approved a contract for Toy at its Jan. 10 meeting. He will make an annual salary of $120,000. See the contract attached at the right.
Mayor John Reed briefly introduced Toy at the Thursday night meeting after the council approved the contract. “We hope it’s the start of a good relationship,” he said.
The council and more than 15 audience members applauded after Toy’s new position was announced.
“I would like to thank the council for its support,” Toy told the council. “It’s a great community and I’m looking forward to working with everyone as we move forward to try to achieve different goals. Thank you.”
Toy, who lives in San Rafael with his wife and two daughters, is currently the administrative services manager in the County of Marin’s Community Development Agency.
For more than 13 years, Toy was part of the senior management team in Morgan Hill, a town south of San Jose with a population of more than 38,000. He served as the director of business assistance and housing services, overseeing Morgan Hill’s redevelopment, economic development and affordable housing activities. He has also served as the deputy director of housing and redevelopment for the city of Stockton and worked for Fairfield’s Department of Planning and Development.
He has more than 23 years of experience in municipal government managing projects and programs from creation to completion, according to Fairfax town staff.
Michael Rock, who was the Fairfax town manager for four and a half years, left the town in June 2012 for a position with the city of Lomita, a city with a population of over 20,000 in Southern California. Judy Anderson, the town clerk, has served as the interim town manager since Rock left.
