South Lake Tahoe, CA- City Manager Frank Rush announced this morning he would resign effective January 24, 2020.
Rush came to South Lake Tahoe from Emerald Isle, NC. He had been with the City of South Lake Tahoe for almost a year.
“I have appreciated the opportunity to serve this beautiful community and have enjoyed getting to know South Lake Tahoe and so many wonderful people I’ve met over the past year,” said Rush, “I am excited for the next chapter in my career, and in my life and my family’s lives.”
The City has seen its fair share of positive change in the past year from hiring new firefighters and the reopening of Fire Station 2 to an ongoing plan to fix and maintain roads in the City. City Council is committed to seeing this continue.
“This news is very disappointing. The City has made significant progress over the last year with the help of Mr. Rush as City Manager,” said Mayor Brooke Laine, “Ironically, this council and our city staff have operated without a city manager before and I am confident we will work diligently to fill this key position. We wish Mr. Rush the best.”
“As City Staff our business is working for the people. It’s the reason we all chose a life of public service,” said Chris Fiore, Communications Manager, “We will continue to work diligently on behalf of the City of South Lake Tahoe.”
Rush will start a new position as City Manager of Big Bear Lake, CA in February. City Council will discuss next steps in the process of selecting a new City Manager soon.
