Benicia’s city council has promoted its interim city manager to the permanent role.
Mario Giuliani was selected for the top administrative post earlier this month. His contract is expected to be approved Tuesday, Aug. 15.
"To be appointed as the City Manager in the community in which I grew up and where I am now raising my children is the honor of my life. I am deeply committed to the success of our town and confident that this community will overcome the challenges that are ahead to put Benicia on a path to prosperity," he said in a statement.
The Solano County city is facing enormous challenges and budget constraints. Mayor Steve Young praised a set of “bold” steps Giuliani has proposed for reducing expenses and raising revenue.
Giuliani has been with the city for many years. He previously served as a management analyst, acting deputy city manager, economic development manager, and deputy city manager. He earned his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a J.D. from UC Davis.
