Folsom City Manager Announces Retirement

Folsom City Manager Evert Palmer is retiring this summer. Palmer says he will step down on July 15, 22 years after he began working for the city and seven years into his tenure as city manager.

“Serving this community, helping to shape its future, has been the highlight of my career and a remarkable part of my life,” Palmer said. “Looking back over the last two decades, I’m proud to help lead and plan the great City of Folsom we know today—the best place in California to raise a family. Folsom is, and will remain, a great community because of the quality of its leadership, the dedication of its employees, and the involvement of its citizens.”

Palmer has been credited with expanding public safety services in Folsom, revitalizing its historic district, and helping the city weather the 2008 recession and dissolution of redevelopment agencies. Mayor Steve Miklos called him an exceptional leader who “built a tremendous legacy and stable foundation” that will endure for years to come.
