Edward Enriquez has been named Riverside’s interim assistant city manager.
His appointment, announced by City Manager Al Zelinka, went into effect April 29, according to a statement on the city’s website.
Enriquez, who has worked for Riverside since 2012, will retain his titles of chief financial officer and treasurer while he holds the interim title. He will become assistant city manager when Lea Deesing retires this month.
“Edward Enriquez has shown exceptional leadership during his more than three years as chief financial officer/deputy treasurer, guiding the city through choppy financial waters,” Zelinka said in the statement “He has demonstrated a commitment to transparency, public trust, and financial responsibility, all of which will serve the city well in his new role.”
Enriquez will oversee the police, fire, finance, housing, museum, and innovation and technology departments, as well as the Office of Homeless Solutions.
Until then, he will help the city adopt its 2022-2023 fiscal year budget, according to the statement.
