New city manager may be on the way

This just in from reporter Amanda Baumfeld:

The city of Covina announced today that they will have a special meeting Saturday at 10 a.m.

The closed session meeting is listed as:

“Government Code 54957(b)–PERSONNEL MATTERS
Public Employee Appointment–Title: Interim City Manager”

When I spoke to Mayor Kevin Stapleton on Thursday he said the council was trying to set up a time to conduct interviews on possible interim city manager candidates.

City Manager Paul Philips was fired on Aug. 11 after eight years of service. The council sited philosophical differences for the termination.

The meeting will be at City Hall, 125 College Street.

Interesting that the city would hold a special meeting on a Saturday morning. Reporter Brian Day will be following up tomorrow…
