Riverside has parted ways with City Manager John Russo following a split vote by the city council Tuesday night.
Under administrative direction, the GM plans, directs, manages and oversees all City programs, activities and operations including strategic planning, development, construction, engineering and maintenance of the DPW. This includes the City’s domestic and irrigation water distribution, waste water treatment systems, street maintenance, and park landscape and lighting maintenance districts, as well as the launching of a new Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) that will provide an alternative electrical power source to City residents and businesses. The GM also serves as a member of the City’s management team and performs related duties as required.
The starting salary will be commensurate with the experience, qualifications and skills of the successful candidate and within the range of $106,061 - $135,500 annually.
The City of San Jacinto also offers a competitive benefits package, including California Public Employees Retirement System pension, fully-paid medical, dental, and vision for both the employee and qualified dependents, a generous health reimbursement account, life insurance, disability, AD&D, tuition reimbursement and continuing education.
ABOUT THE CITY
Founded in 1870, and incorporated on April 9, 1888, San Jacinto is one of the County's oldest communities with roots that stretch back to the earliest days of California. The current population is just under 48,000 in San Jacinto’s 26 square miles, with an average population age of 31.6 years old.
San Jacinto is experiencing a revitalization in a variety of development projects, road and drainage improvements, and is growing at its fastest pace in well over 10 years.
The City is nearing the completion of a long awaited Downtown Specific Plan that it hopes will reinvigorate and revitalize its San Jacinto Main Street.
Additionally, the community is excited about the new economic growth inside the City - spurred by the development of the new 480,000 square foot Soboba Casino Resort, new retail establishments (Aldi Grocery, Starbucks Drive Thru, Wienerschnitzel Restaurant and Sonic Drive In, among others to come) and over 200 new homes permitted this calendar year.
The deadline to apply is May 6, 2018 before 11:30 PM PST.

The City of La Verne is grappling with a pair of lawsuits brought by members of its fire department that have exposed deep divisions and opened the struggling city up to further financial hardship.
We’ve lost count of the number of government officials were left red-faced (or worse) as a result of what they thought was just an innocent tweet.
