Beaver Creek’s O’Rourke a candidate for Tahoe job
Beaver Creek, CO Colorado
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – Beaver Creek Resort Company Executive Director Tony O’Rourke is a finalist in South Lake Tahoe’s search for a new city manager.
Moraga, Calif. City Manager Michael Segrest is the other finalist.
A panel of city commission representatives and community members interviewed both men at Lake Tahoe Airport on Monday morning.
The panel is expected to provide input to the City Council prior to the hiring of a new city manager. Current City Manager David Jinkens is set to retire Aug. 7.
O’Rourke has worked for Beaver Creek Resort Company for the past 14 years, but has previous experience as a city manager in California, Texas and Florida.
Segrest has previously served as the city manager of Snowmass Village, and has been the city manager of Moraga for a little over a year. Segrest said he normally wouldn’t be looking for a new job so soon, but said his wife’s health concerns caused him to look for employment in an area with better air quality.
The panel covered a wide range of topics with both men on Monday, from what they can do about the stalled convention center project near Stateline to how they will hire South Lake Tahoe’s new police chief.
