Calabasas City Manager Resigns

Gary Lysik has stepped down from his role as city manager of Calabasas. His resignation took effect last Monday. Robert Yalda, who oversees the Public Works Department, has been appointed as an interim replacement.

Lysik cited personal reasons for his departure. His tenure saw a number of controversies and allegations, as reported by the Acorn.

“The city is and remains financially sound,” said Lysik (Patch). “While leaving presents its own unique emotions, I am happy to be leaving the City financially sound … As I step away from public life in Calabasas to take this time with my family, I will miss my work here, but will do so wishing the city the best in the coming years.”

Lysik has been at the helm since August of 2018. Before that, he served as the city’s chief financial officer.
