The city already has ten confirmed retirements for the coming year, including City Manager Karen McLaughlin.
In all, 160 workers meet the CalPERS requirements for retirement, which are only that a worker is at least 50 years old and has five years of service in the system.
Manteca Human Resources Director Joe Kriskovich remains vigilant, saying “We have a pretty good handle on our people and their thought process and we talked to a lot of them who are potentially eligible.”
The city has already brought on a firm to facilitate the search for a successor City Manager.
Kriskovich also mentioned that just because they are eligible doesn’t mean they file their two weeks and jet, as the first retirement check would come months later. Most retirees give the city several month’s notice, so it is not the HR-mageddon that is appears to be at first glance. (See what we did there?)
