B.A. Manager Takes Office
Sept. 21 was Michael Spurgeon’s first official day on the job as Broken Arrow’s city manager. Most recently, Spurgeon served as director of administration for the City of St. Charles, Missouri. He has also worked as city manager for the City of Miami, Oklahoma, township business administrator for Pemberton Township, New Jersey, and township manager for Eastampton, New Jersey.
Spurgeon grew up in Tulsa, where his father was a captain of the Tulsa Fire Department, and his mother worked for the Tulsa Police Department.
His three-year employment agreement provides for his retention by the City of Broken Arrow at an annual salary of $166,000. As in prior city manager agreements, it also provides a transportation and technology allowance and a bank of available personal leave and retirement contributions in the amount of 12 percent.
Spurgeon holds a master’s degree in public administration from Rutgers University and bachelor in business administration from Edison State College.
