Milpitas City Manager Resigns

Milpitas City Manager Julie Edmonds-Mares has resigned. In recent weeks, her job performance has been under review by City Councilmembers during closed session evaluations, the last of which just took place yesterday. 

The Milpitas City Council is expected to appoint current Deputy City Manager Steve McHarris as the Interim City Manager in the wake of Edmonds-Mares’ departure. Edmonds-Mares has served for a little over a year, having entered the position after the resignation of her embattled predecessor Tom Williams. As such, her prime mandate was to facilitate greater harmony between the Council and city staff. Edmonds-Mares’ previous management experience was in the City of San Jose.

In comments made in a City of Milpitas press release, Mayor Rich Tran highlighted the departing City Manager’s main accomplishments, among them filling numerous key management positions and establishing City participation in the Silicon Valley Clean energy consortium.

In the same press release, Councilmember Carmen Montano praised Mr. McHarris, saying, “I’m confident we’ll be in good hands with Steve McHarris at the helm.”

Julie Edmonds-Mares was the first woman to serve as City Manager in Milpitas.

More details are coming in, and The Milpitas Beat will continue to keep you posted.
