Take Two of San Leandro's City Manager Search

Teri Black & Company, the search firm hired by the San Leandro City Council on July 5, 2011, posted the City Manager position on its web site on Thursday, September 15, 2011, nearly six months after the position was originally posted on the City website.

The salary is now listed as DOQE, which stands for Dependent on Qualifications and Experience. The previous brochure also listed no salary but noted that previous city managers have been paid "15% above step five of the salary range of the highest paid City management employee as shown in the City Council adopted Pay Plan" according to their employment agreements. For the previous city manager, that meant 15% more than $14,688 per month, or $202,694 annually.

The previous version of the brochure stated that benefits include "8% City-paid contribution for CALPERS," and "Generous vacation and administrative leave; car allowance provided." The new version of the brochure states, "A portion of the contribution may be employee-paid during the first three years of employment as part of the fiscal stabilization program." and eliminates any mention of a car allowance.

The new brochure adds that "[Relocation] Assistance is available and negotiable and will be dependent on the needs and desires of the candidate selected. Willingness to consider residing in San Leandro will be well received."

Businesses mentioned in the brochure include Ghirardelli Chocolate Company, Coca-Cola, Odwalla, Otis Spunkmeyer, Tri-Net, OSIsoft, and Kaiser.

The application deadline is October 16, 2011, at midnight.

Previous San Leandro City Manager Steve Hollister submitted his resignation, effective June 30, 2011, just after the City Council met in closed session on December 20, 2010. Hollister was hired as Assistant City Manager in 2004 with the help of a search firm. He became Interim City Manager in September 2008 after the retirement of John Jermanis and was appointed City Manager in December 2008. Lianne Marshall was appointed as Interim City Manager on June 6, 2011.
