Newport Beach Assistant City Manager to Step Down
October 8 will be Newport Beach Assistant City Manager Carol Jacobs’ last day on the job. Her last council meeting was Sept. 28. She is leaving for a job in the private sector, the city has confirmed.
Jacobs was hired in 2015. She previously served as city manager of Stanton and Eastvale and as interim city manager of Grand Terrace.
“I have come to love the community and all of the exceptional employees who work here,” she said in an email. “This community is blessed with natural beauty, amazing amenities and a wonderful environment for everyone to enjoy the highest quality of life.”
Jacobs has been credited with managing the city’s response to homelessness, including the creation of the new bridge shelter. She was also instrumental in the establishment of the city’s harbor department.
The city says there is no timetable for hiring a replacement.
