CITY OF <br />NEWPORT BEACH <br />C9C /Fp0.N`P City Council Staff Report <br />Agenda Item No. 7 <br />August 14, 2012 <br />TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL <br />FROM: City Manager's Office <br />Dave Kiff, City Manager <br />949 - 644 -3001, dkiff @newportbeachca.gov <br />PREPARED BY: Dave Kiff, City Manager <br />APPROVED: � A <br />TITLE: Designation of Manager pro Tempore <br />ABSTRACT: <br />Section 507 of the City of Newport Beach's Charter asks the City Manager to seek <br />approval of the City Council for the appointment of a "manager pro tempore" — a person <br />to serve in his or her stead if the City Manager is temporarily absent or disabled.
