CITY OF NEWPORT BEACH <br />CITY COUNCIL STAFF REPORT <br />Agenda Item No. 17 <br />May 26, 2009 <br />TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL <br />FROM: City Manager's Office <br />Homer Bludau, City Manager <br />949/644 -3000 or hbludau(a)city.newport- <br />Human Resources Department <br />Terri L. Cassidy, Human Resources Director <br />949/644 -3300 or tcassidy(a ) citv.newport- <br />SUBJECT: City Council Consideration of a Revised City Manager Job Description <br />ISSUE: <br />Does the City Council concur that the job description being proposed by the City Manager <br />ad hoc Recruitment Committee reflects the duties of the Newport Beach City Manager's <br />position? <br />RECOMMENDATION: <br />Review proposed job description and make any modifications necessary. Approve a job <br />description to be utilized during the recruitment process for a new City Manager. <br />DISCUSSION: <br />Background: <br />The City Manager is retiring on or about September 15' de ending upon the date a new City <br />Manager is hired and reports to work. At the May 12h City Council meeting, Council <br />authorized hiring the executive recruitment firm of Teri Black & Company to conduct the <br />search. One of the important informational documents prospective applicants may want to <br />review will be the job description for the position. This, along with the recruitment brochure, <br />are important components to applicants gaining a better understanding of the community <br />and of the Council's desire for its Chief Executive Officer and the goals it has for the <br />organization. <br />The City Charter contains some requirements that have been incorporated into the job <br />description, but other general information offers a sense of the position's scope. The job <br />description has not been reviewed by a City Council for the past 10 years and the City <br />Manager ad hoc Committee felt it needed to be updated for this recruitment. <br />
