The Rohnert Park, Calif., City Council unanimously approved the city manager's request to hire an assistant city manager, as long as the manager agrees to spend more time working on economic development. City Manager Gabe Gonzalez was hired partly because of his past work in economic development, but he says he does not have time to work on long-term planning and policy because he must handle daily operations. Gonzalez plans to promote a city employee.
