On August 9, during a special closed session meeting, the City Council unanimously directed staff to place the appointment of Nancy Bronstein to be interim city manager on the Council’s September 6 meeting agenda. (City manager appointments must occur during open session at a regularly scheduled Council meeting.) Ms. Bronstein, who is currently the acting city manager and human resources director, became human resources director in January 2016, and also served as acting finance director from March to September 2020.

Ms. Bronstein takes over for Dirk Brazil who the City Council appointed to be interim city manager in May 2022. Unfortunately, due to a family emergency, Mr. Brazil resigned from that position and appointed Ms. Bronstein and Public Works Director Erin Smith to be acting co-city managers, pending Council’s appointment of an interim city manager. Ms. Bronstein will now oversee City operations while the Council moves forward with hiring a permanent city manager.
