FROM CITY MANAGER TROY POWELL:
Under the direction of The Colony City Council, my office oversees all of the city’s day-to-day operations and services, including management of the city’s budget. These tasks are accomplished in partnership with a team of dedicated and professional departmental directors with whom I am proud to serve alongside for the betterment of this wonderful community and its residents.
It is also my responsibility to ensure the vision for the future of the city is realized, as determined by the council and the constituents they represent. It is my belief that The Colony is now and will continue to be a vibrant, evolving community that attracts new residents, visitors and businesses eager to become a part of that future.
Troy has 19 years of local government experience, most recently as city manager of the City of The Colony. Since his arrival in 2010, The Colony has maintained an extremely conservative budget approach, consistently lowering the tax rate and reducing the costs of doing business despite an increasing demand for services. The city is experiencing an historic period of economic growth, which includes the $1.5 billion Grandscape project, additional development at The Cascades, and new high-profile businesses such as TopGolf. Troy has a master’s of political science in urban affairs management and a bachelor’s of arts in political science from the University of Central Oklahoma. He is also an ICMA (International City Managers Association) credentialed city manager.
