Upland stumped on hiring temporary city manager

Despite three separate meetings in one week, Upland has yet to decide who will be its interim city manager, or whether it should even hire one.

Council members met in a special closed session Monday before their regular meeting to discuss the matter but failed to reach a decision, according to a report in the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin.

Six candidates, all of whom have served as city managers before, are reportedly being considered. Last Friday, council members met with former La Verne City Manager Martin Lomeli during a closed session, according to the report.

It’s not known if the council will hold another private meeting or take up the matter during its next regular meeting, which is scheduled for June 23.

Upland is facing potential bankruptcy and is trying to save up to $7 million, possibly through tax increases and outsourcing the management of several departments, including the city library.

City Manager Stephen Dunn announced last month he will step down after 13 years with the city. His last day is June 30.
