The Eastvale City Council announced Wednesday that 30-year public administration veteran Henry Garcia will step in as Acting City Manager to ensure fluid city operations during existing City Manager Bryan Jones’ leave of absence. Garcia helped Eastvale facilitate and draft the City Council’s strategic plan in 2018 and 2021.
“Mr. Garcia has the experience, familiarity and knowledge to step seamlessly into this role and continue the momentum, stability, and continuity the city has seen the last couple of years regarding business growth and service expansion,” said Mayor Clint Lorimore.
Garcia’s employment experience spans three decades of professional public service work, including time spent as city manager for several cities in southern California.
“With Mr. Garcia’s depth of experience helping cities run smoothly, Eastvale will benefit from his knowledge in consensus building, strategic planning and goal setting to help further our strategic goals as we head into 2022,” said Lorimore.
City Clerk/Communications Director Marc Donohue and Community Development Director Gina Gibson-Williams have been jointly serving as Acting City Managers since Dec. 14.
“The City has many goals to work on in 2022, and I’m honored to help guide City staff toward achieving the objectives set forth in the strategic plan,” said Garcia. “By maintaining fiscal strength, protecting public safety, bolstering the city’s infrastructure, and supporting local businesses, we will collaboratively expand opportunity in the City of Eastvale.”
