The Menifee City Council Tuesday night unanimously approved contract agreements for Interim City Manager Rob Johnson and consultant Shawn Nelson.

Johnson has been serving as interim city manager since Bill Rawlings left in November. Because he has no previous experience in that position, council members made the decision to add to the management team Nelson, who previously served as city manager in Temecula.

Johnson, who was previously on staff as a senior manager, will be paid $160,000 over the next year. Nelson will be paid $126,000 -- $10,000 per month and $500 monthly expense reimbursement.

  1. Though I am unaware as to all the duties associated with these positions, the salaries in this article simply have to jump off the page at you. As much as I am eager to see the City Of Menifee develop into all that it can be, these salaries for this area seem excessive. The average U.S. Congress member earns $174,000 annually and one of these salaries is a mere $14,000 less. I think we need some explanation as to how these figures were decided and what the job descriptions of each are in the article so we can reasonably decide if this is appropriate earnings.

  2. Edgerton blames the previous council for the ills of hiring a city manager.What he fails to point out is four of the five current council were a part of that previous council,three years of which he was the mayor.What confidence can we have that this a better way to run a city? The representatives are elected to make choices in running the city.They need to hire an experienced manager and get on with the city business and quit wasting money on consultants.
