California City’s City Manager Resigns

City Manager Robert Stockwell resigned from the job during a regularly scheduled meeting of California City’s city council Tuesday. His departure, which took effect at 11:59 p.m., came a week and a half after he was placed on paid administrative leave pending some sort of an investigation.

Stockwell was the second city employee to be placed on administrative leave in the last month. Public Works Director Craig Platt is also on paid hiatus. The city says the two matters are unrelated.

Anna Linn continues to serve as interim city manager for California City.
