Eastvale – The City of Eastvale has a new Mayor, Mayor Pro Tem, new Councilmembers, and a new City Manager.
At the Dec. 14 City Council meeting, new members of the Eastvale City Council were sworn in, a new Mayor and a new Mayor Pro Tem was appointed. Last month, a new City Manager was also selected.
The December meeting began with accepting the declaration of the Nov. 8th General and Special Municipal Elections. Then a presentation was given for outgoing Mayor Clint Lorimore and outgoing Councilmember Brandon Plott.
An Oath of Office took place for Todd Rigby, Councilmember for District 1, Clint Lorimore, Councilmember for District 3, Jocelyn Yow, and Councilmember for District 4, Mike McMinn, Councilmember for District 5.
The Council appointed Todd Rigby as the new Eastvale Mayor and Christian Dinco as the new Mayor Pro Tem with a unanimous vote for both. The Mayor and the Mayor Pro Tem will preside until the last City Council meeting of 2023.
At the Nov. 16 Eastvale City Council meeting, the Council also appointed Mark Orme as the new Eastvale City Manager. They approved the proposed Employment Agreement for the Position of City Manager as well. The motion passed with a 4-0 vote. Councilmember Yow was not present at the meeting, but former Mayor Clint Lorimore said that prior to this meeting, the decision to hire Orme was unanimous.
“The City conducted a rigorous and extensive recruitment process for the selection of a new City Manager,” stated the Eastvale Agenda Staff Report. The report explained that they conducted two rounds of interviews with applicants before selecting Mr. Orme. Contract negotiations were also conducted, according to the report.
During the meeting, Councilmember Dinco stated that he thinks Orme is “going to lead the City in a really positive way to Eastvale’s next chapter. With so much development happening in the future and so many great opportunities coming for the City, I’m really excited to potentially approve this employment agreement with Mark Orme tonight.”
Orme was previously the City Manager for the City of Chico for approximately 8 years. Prior to that, he served as the Assistant City Manager in Chico. For more information about Orme, visit page 2 of our Eastvale News December 2022 publication.
