Corona City Manager, Darrell Talbert Resigns
Corona, CA – The Corona City Council agreed to accept the resignation of City Manager Darrell Talbert today. In closed session, the City Council unanimously approved a resignation and release agreement with Mr. Talbert, effective today.
Assistant City Manager Michele Nissen will serve as the Acting City Manager until the City Council has an opportunity to interview and select an Interim City Manager who will serve the City during a nation-wide search for a permanent City Manager. We anticipate that the selection of an Interim City Manager will take several weeks and the recruitment for a permanent City Manager may take several months.
Mr. Talbert is a lifelong Corona resident and has spent nearly 25 years serving the City of Corona. His career with Corona began in 1994 where he spent 12 years as a City Council Member and served 3 times as the Mayor in 1997/98, 2001/02 and 2004/05. Since 2008, Mr. Talbert has served the City in various capacities as the Deputy Director of Community Development, Director of Redevelopment, Administrative Services Director, Assistant City Manager and for the last 4 years as City Manager.
“Mr. Talbert has accomplished too many things during his career in Corona to adequately summarize them and do him justice, but it goes without saying that his love of this community will be felt here for decades to come. He has served the City through many tough times, and I speak for the entire City Council in stating that we wish him well and thank him for his dedication and service to our community, “said Mayor Jason Scott.
Again, the City of Corona would like to thank Mr. Talbert for his many years of service and dedication to Corona and we wish him all the best.
