City Managers in the SGV

Monterey Park, which lost its city manager to Glendora, is moving towards appointing a department head as interim city manager. It then intends to spend $23,000 and a minimum of 14 weeks looking for a replacement. Meanwhile, I also recent read that West Covina’s city manager makes $188,000/year, while El Monte’s makes $194,484.  I bet both also get a car allowance in addition to their salaries. If you want to put that in context, Vice President currently makes about $208,000.

Now, I’m not saying I like the job the veep is doing, but I would have thought that someone who’s above the rules the President makes would earn more money than that.
