Delta has hired a new city manager. On Tuesday night, city officials announced David Torgler, the current town manager of Hayden, Colorado, accepted the position.

Officials delivered the news during a city council meeting. 

Last week, four finalists for the job came to Delta for interviews and a community meet-and-greet. 

"Head over heels, [Torgler] was just a better fit than the other three and his spouse wants to come here, which really helps," said Delta Mayor Ed Sisson.

The city started looking for a manager back in May. It offered the position to two candidates who turned it down.

After that, Delta hired a recruiting company to take over the search in August.

Sisson said he’s glad the hunt for a city manager is over.

"Now I can start sleeping. It’s finally worked out and I think we have a really qualified applicant."

Sisson anticipated Torgler will start sometime in January.
