Council offers Meacher city manager role

Former Plumas County Supervisor Robert Meacher has been offered and accepted the position of Portola city manager.

While there has been a verbal commitment between the city council and Meacher, the final contract won’t be signed until all details have been resolved including Meacher’s pre-employment physical scheduled for Thursday.

“The city has offered me an exciting opportunity,” Meacher said during an interview Monday morning.

“I think he’s going to be a great asset,” Councilman Bill Powers said. “He has experience, and a knowledge of the area and the relationship between the city and the county.”

Meacher represented Indian Valley on the Board of Supervisors for 20 years, before stepping aside at the end of 2012 to run for the assembly seat now held by Brian Dahle. He is a 40-year resident of the county and a business owner for 25 years.

A city manager must live within 15 minutes of the city and Meacher plans to relocate from his Genesee home to Portola as soon as possible.
