The Geneva City Council has named Jennifer Slywka acting city manager.
The Finger Lakes Times reports Slywka, currently the city’s Human Resources Director, will be paid a stipend of $750 per week to take on the additional duties. She will take over for Sage Gerling, who recently announced her departure. She will serve until a permanent replacement is hired or until July 31. “We’ve been through this before and Jen has carried the torch before” said Mayor Steve Valentino. Slywka served as acting City Manager when Rich Rising departed in 2008.
The city also reached agreement with the MRB group to serve as liaison to the city’s Industrial Development Agency. Former City Manager Matt Horn, who works for MRB, will be one member of the administrative team. Tracy Verrier, formerly with Cayuga Strategic Solutions, will be the other member of the team.
Assistant City Manager Adam Blowers also recently announced his departure.
