Carson council names new city manager
Biggs is currently serving as interim assistant city administrator in Montebello. He has worked for a number of cities and was city manager of Tustin and Morgan Hill, near San Jose.
He served as assistant city manager of Redondo Beach for five years but served only a few months in Tustin before the City Council fired him in March.
Biggs’ three-year contract with Carson was approved on a 4-0 vote, with Councilman Mike Gipson absent.
“We are very excited about bringing Mr. Biggs on board,” Carson Mayor Jim Dear said. “Carson will certainly benefit from Mr. Biggs’ remarkable leadership and extensive experience in the different aspects of city management.”
The previous city manager, Jerry Groomes, resigned to take a job as director of the Southeast Economic Development Corp. in San Diego.
