RICHMOND — Weeks after Richmond’s city manager was abruptly fired, former Lafayette city manager Steven Falk has been tapped to take his place on an interim basis.
Richmond city council members unanimously appointed Falk at a council meeting Tuesday night and he was sworn in today, Mayor Tom Butt confirmed. City council member Demnlus Johnson was absent from Tuesday night’s vote.
Falk will start Thursday, Butt said. Henry Gardner — the former Oakland city manager who served as acting city manager in Richmond for the past few weeks — will be starting soon as interim director of the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority.
