Corona City Manager Resigns
Darrell Talbert, who has served as City Manager of Corona for the past four years, resigned abruptly Wednesday for reasons that remain unclear. A city press release says his offer of resignation was unanimously accepted in a closed session of the City Council. It took effect immediately, with Assistant City Manager Michele Nissen taking over as Acting City Manager.
“Mr. Talbert has accomplished too many things during his career in Corona to adequately summarize them and do him justice, but it goes without saying that his love of this community will be felt here for decades to come,” said Mayor Jason Scott. “He has served the City through many tough times, and I speak for the entire City Council in stating that we wish him well and thank him for his dedication and service to our community.”
“Again, the City of Corona would like to thank Mr. Talbert for his many years of service and dedication to Corona and we wish him all the best,” read the press release.
Talbert is a former Corona city councilman. He served three terms in office before replacing Brad Robbins as city manager in 2014.
