It's official: City Manager Glen Rojas will retire on July 15, then return to serve on a temporary contract until December or until Menlo Park hires a replacement.
The City Council approved the contract during its June 7 meeting. Mr. Rojas will earn $15,000 a month, while also collecting his pension. The council granted an extension on repaying a $1.2 million home loan from the city; he'll now have two years from his last day as interim manager to pay back the approximately $41,500 left.
Meanwhile, the council is searching nationwide for a new city manager.
