Her retirement will go into effect on Jan. 31, 2022, according to a June 18 news release.
Barron has served as the city manager since 2014 but has worked with the city since 1990. She started as the human resources director and later became assistant city manager.
“I stayed in Lewisville for 31 years because of the great people I have had an opportunity to work with, both within the organization and in the community,” Barron said in the news release.
Lewisville has approved using the firm Ralph Andersen & Associates to conduct a national search to find the next city manager.
Along with Barron, the city will be seeking to replace Jason Moore, director of economic development. Moore voluntarily resigned June 7, said James Kunke, community relations and tourism director for the city of Lewisville.
Kunke said the city is reviewing the job description to see if any updates need to be made before posting the opening. A decision has not been made as to whether a recruitment service will be used, Kunke said.
"There are several major projects currently being pursued, so we hope to fill the position within the next 90 days," Kunke said.
