A former Pueblo city manager will now run the city government in Florence. Lew Quigley retired as Pueblo City Manager in 2000. Recently he was named a finalist for the Florence job along with Scott Hahn and Thomas Hale from Salida and Glenn Hartmann from Glenwood Springs.
According to Mayor Paul Villagrana, Quigley was hired because of his vast experience in Pueblo and other places. While Quigley was given a one year contract, Villagrana said the town council wanted him to commit verbally to three to five years in Florence.
Quigley is 74. He was hired Monday and started his new job Tuesday. He will earn $61,000 a year.
