Yucca Valley, Ca.,- A special meeting has been called by the Mayor of Yucca Valley for January 30, 2013 at 5pm to discuss the Town Manager’s evaluation and possible amendments to his contract. This Closed Session meeting will be held at the Yucca Valley Community room per the agenda posted on the town’s website for the following reasons: 1. Closed session pursuant to Government Code Section 54957, Public Performance Employee Evaluation. (Town Manager.) and 2. Closed session pursuant to Government Code Section 54957.6. Conference with labor negotiators, Negotiator: Mark Nuaimi; Employee Organization(s): Unrepresented Exempt, Unrepresented Non-Exempt. Agenda link

As reported in an earlier post, Yucca Valley Town Manager, Mark Nuaimi, was in session for 2 1/2 hours during the last closed session held on Tuesday, January 22, 2013.  “Yucca Valley Town Council…a New Era?”  link

Having been on a spending spree since he was hired in July 2010, it may difficult for Nuaimi to ask for a raise prior to the budget workshops where it has been stated the deficit will be anywhere from $250,000 to a reported $850,000 during Nuaimi’s Powerpoint presentation on November 20, 2012 when he was proposing placing another tax measure on the ballot.  “Town Council Cinches up Purse Strings” link  ….11-20-2012 Measure U PowerPoint re: $850,000.00 deficit link

As in the case of Upland, amending the City Manager’s contract to prohibit any firing with 180 days of electing a new council member, or requiring a super majority vote to end his employment. Will both of these amendments be demanded to Nuaimi’s contract for more job security?

Stay tuned….

  1. If the town council represents all of the residents, they will have to reject town manager desire for a platinum parachute. It’a appealing for a self-serving town manager to float such a request, but it’s akin to dropping your pants and mooning the entire city on the way out.

    Twenty thousand a months is more than enough quid pro quo for the town manager, ya think.
