Tigan appointed Portola City ManagerDiana Jorgenson
The Portola City Council appointed Leslie Tigan the new city manager by a 3-to-1 vote at the last regular meeting of the council June 22.
Council member John Larrieu made the motion to appoint Tigan as interim city manager effective July 1 and continuing until successful negotiation and approval of an employment contract with her. His motion received a second from council member Curt McBride; Mayor Pro Tem Juliana Mark was in agreement and council member William Weaver voted “nay.” Mayor Dan Wilson was absent but had endorsed the plan prior to leaving on vacation.
The council also directed the Finance and Administration Committee, composed of Larrieu and McBride, to act as labor negotiators and bring agreed-upon contract terms for consideration by the council.
Tigan is currently city clerk, an elected position, and administrative services manager.
