Another Menifee City Manager Has Left the Building

For the fifth time in eight years, the City of Menifee has parted ways with its top administrator.

On Thursday, the city council finalized the departure of City Manager Rob Johnson, nine days after it announced it had accepted his resignation. Per the separation agreement approved by the council, the city will pay him $235,491—a figure that includes six months pay, severance awards, owed salary and accrued leave. In turn, he agrees not to pursue legal action against the city related to his employment.

Johnson lasted longer than most.

 

Having started on an interim basis in November 2012, Johnson had the longest tenure of any of Menifee’s five acting, interim or permanent chief administrators since incorporation on Oct. 1, 2008. The longest previous reign was Johnson’s predecessor, Bill Rawlings, who lasted 21 months.

 

Jeff Wyman, Economic Development Director and Interim Community Development Director for the city, will now step in on an interim basis.
