bob_wingenrothNo one really seems to know, which is apparent from this somewhat confusing Voice of OC article on the confusion over when City Manager Bob Wingenroth departs for his new job as assistant city manager of Surprise, Arizona.

The Anaheim City Council’s agenda for Tuesday might have been shaken up because of some confusion about exactly when resigning City Manager Bob Wingenroth is stepping down and ceding control of the city’s bureaucracy to a department head.

When Wingenroth first announced his resignation earlier this month, a city news release stated it would be effective June 7.

But last week Wingenroth sent an email to city officials indicating that he had departed and left Marcie Edwards, general manager of public utilities, at the helm, according to Mayor Tom Tait, who first backed appointing Wingenroth interim city manager in 2011.

Yet by the end of the week, Wingenroth was still city manager.

“I just left City Hall, and he was there. I don’t know exactly what his status is,” Tait said when asked last week. Tait said that despite Wingenroth’s memo, the city manager will likely “stay until the next meeting.”

The Anaheim City Council meets tonight,m so perhaps some clarification on this question will emerge.
