REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors today appointed John Maltbie as Acting County Manager, effective December 1, 2011.
Maltbie served as San Mateo County Manager for 20 years until his retirement in December 2008. As Acting County Manager, he will have overall management responsibility for the County’s $1.75 billion budget.
The Board, meanwhile, will conduct a nationwide search for a new County Manager. That search is expected to take several months and no deadline has been set to fill the position.
The Board announced the interim appointment following a closed session meeting.
The Board said a subcommittee of Supervisors Adrienne J. Tissier and Dave Pine will negotiate a contract that will come before the full Board at a special meeting at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, November 29.
The Board said Maltbie’s extensive knowledge and experience will help the County continue its mission of delivering excellent services to the community while seeking ways to reduce costs.
“I am looking forward to serving the residents of San Mateo County to the best of my abilities,” Maltbie said.
Maltbie will succeed David S. Boesch.
