Press Release - Elk Grove City Manager Laura S. Gill Resigns

Posted: 05/09/2018

Laura S. Gill announced her resignation today as Elk Grove’s city manager. Her last day will be Friday, May 11. Ms. Gill’s departure comes at the request of a majority of the city council made during their April 11 closed session meeting.

Ms. Gill was appointed as Elk Grove’s third city manager in May 2008 and steered the city through the Great Recession. Laura has more than 30 years of municipal government experience serving previously for El Dorado County and the City of Durham, North Carolina.

“We are a stronger community because of Ms. Gill’s leadership at City Hall,” said Elk Grove Mayor Steve Ly. “While the Council sees this as a time for change, we value the hard work and dedication that she has provided to the residents of Elk Grove for nearly a decade.”

In her letter of resignation, Ms. Gill shared the following:

“Thank you for the privilege of serving you and the citizens of Elk Grove for nearly a decade. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of a special organization that has valued responsiveness, customer service, and teamwork to deliver excellent services to our citizens and customers every day.”

“I am proud of the work that we have accomplished, and I look forward to seeing the results of the initiatives that we have started. I wish the City and the organization all the best in the future.”

Ms. Gill’s severance package was approved by the city council tonight in closed session. Elk Grove’s Assistant City Manager, Jason Behrmann, will serve as the Interim City Manager.

The City Council will determine the process to recruit and fill the City Manager position.
