City Hopes to Hire New Manager by July

The city of San Marino hopes to hire a new city manager by July, according to Mayor Steve Talt.
The new city manager would replace San Marino Fire Chief Mario Rueda, who stepped into that role after City Manager Marcella Marlowe was put on administrative leave in October.
With the city’s fiscal year ending on June 30, Talt confirmed the city would like to wrap up the current hiring process by that date. As part of the process, the city is seeking the public’s input and has published a city manager community engagement survey on its website.
The city also has scheduled two community engagement forums, one on Feb. 23 and the other on March 16, from 6-7 p.m. The forums will be held in the Barth Community Room of the Crowell Public Library and will also be available on Zoom.
The San Marino City Council on Dec. 14 approved Bob Murray & Associates as the firm that will find and vet the next city manager.
The city has been working with Yasmin Beers, a senior executive recruiter with the firm who is based in Northern California. Beers is a former city manager of Glendale. Talt said that the city will pay the new city manager $225,000 to $245,000, depending on experience and qualifications.
“We feel we have selected the right people to lead us through this process,” Talt said.
He added that the city looked at six potential professional recruiting firms before deciding on Murray.
“We saw that they had recruited for several cities who are like ours and had similar budgets,” he noted.
