During a closed session prior to a special meeting April 26 of the Portola City Council, the council appointed City Clerk Leslie Tigan as acting city manager, with all the duties and authorizations of the city manager. She will be acting in the stead of current City Manager Jim Murphy, who was not in attendance at the meeting.
City Attorney Steve Gross made the closed session announcement on behalf of the council, “Just for your information, Jim is on a medical leave right now, and we don’t have a date certain for his return. In the meantime, Leslie will be the acting city manager.”
According to Gross, Mayor Dan Wilson, Mayor Pro Tem Juliana Mark, council members Curt McBride and John Larrieu voted “aye” and council member William Weaver was opposed.
Tigan announced that she had already prepared to go on vacation, leaving the following Thursday, two days later, and that Director of Public Works Todd Roberts would be acting city manager during her absence.
