City to seek interim manager from the outside

From page A1 | February 18, 2014 |

The Davis City Council decided unanimously Friday in a closed session that it will hire an interim city manager from outside city ranks in April, according to an announcement Monday.

City Manager Steve Pinkerton finalized a contract last week to become general manager of Lake Tahoe’s Incline Village General Improvement District. The district handles recreation, sewer and waste for the northeast shore of Lake Tahoe, in Nevada.

Pinkerton makes a base salary of $188,000 in Davis compared to a $175,000 promised base salary in Incline Village. He has told the media his last day will be Friday, April 25, giving the city time to figure out its next steps.

On Friday, the City Council also agreed unanimously to engage the same search firm that had found Pinkerton 2 1/2 years ago. The council will vote on a contract with the firm at its Feb. 25 meeting.

“Using the same search firm will expedite the process, as the recruiter and the search firm are familiar with the city and its goals and objectives,” a city statement said Monday, adding that the council likely would be interviewing candidates in the next few weeks.

The council also decided to wait until after the June 3 City Council election to make a decision on the new hire.

Pinkerton was hired as Davis’ city manager in August 2011. Prior to that, he served as city manager for three years in Manteca, a city similar in size to Davis, and before that led revitalization efforts in the city of Stockton for 13 years as the head of the redevelopment agency. He also held managerial positions in Redondo Beach and Long Beach.

In the past, Pinkerton has said he was not looking for work when the Incline Village job came along. He also said Lake Tahoe was someplace his family had always wanted to live.

Pinkerton has overseen several major changes in city policy and government initiatives. Some of the most controversial were contract negotiations with public sector unions that in two cases saw the imposition of terms by the City Council, and helping put forward the $228 million Woodland-Davis surface water project to a successful approval by Davis voters.

The Cannery residential development, the planned $100 million sewage treatment upgrade and smaller projects currently in motion like the East Covell Corridor street safety improvements also have been under his watch.
