Being the guy who counts the pennies is rarely rewarded, but
Bruce Lebsack, director of finance and administration for the Metro
District, earned a day in the spotlight. The Special District
Association of Colorado awarded Lebsack the distinguished manager
award in September.
The conference was held at Keystone Sept. 23-25.
Lebsack has worked with Highlands Ranch Metro District for 27
years. He and his staff worked out the financial details of
district consolidation, which brought the debts owed by the
original four populated districts in Highlands Ranch into one debt
without incurring additional interest.
During his time with the Metro District, he has been part of
more than $300 million worth of capital construction projects.
Under Lebsack’s direction, the Metro District’s finances have gone
from unrated to a AA+ standard & Poor’s rating.
He has been part of all major decisions the district has signed,
including partnerships with surrounding communities, including
negotiating an intergovernmental agreement with Reunion
Metropolitan District; and creating partnerships with the City of
Littleton and the Littleton Fire Protection District.
In addition to his work with the Metro District, Lebsack has
served as a member of and past chairman of the Colotrust Board of
Trustees and the Governor’s Advisory Committees on Governmental
Accounting and Municipal Bonds.
In November 2008, the Metro District Board of Directors honored
Lebsack by renaming the community tennis center the Bruce Lebsack
Tennis Center for his unparalleled contributions to the community,
and his personal passion for tennis.
