Roseville City Council approves contract for Mike Shellito
By: Staff Report
Search for permanent city manager continues
Roseville City Council unanimously approved an employment contract for Mike Shellito as he continues serving as Roseville’s City Manager. The month-to-month contract approved Wednesday night grants Shellito a monthly salary of $20,833 to continue acting as city manager until a permanent replacement is appointed. The contract, which will be effective Jan. 1, eliminates additional deferred compensation, a monthly car allowance of $750 a month and is a $5,750 reduction from former city manager Craig Robinson’s monthly compensation. Other details of the contract include dropping the “interim” from Shellito’s title to comply with the City’s charter and a provision that allows either party to terminate the contract with 30 days notice. Shellito formerly served as assistant city manager, a position that is not currently being filled and community services director. After Robinson was placed on leave on Oct.7 2009, the council appointed Shellito to serve as interim city manager through Dec. 31, 2009. At the time of his appointment, Shellito did not request any additional compensation and agreed to serve as interim city manager despite previous plans of retirement. Under the contract approved at Wednesday’s city council meeting, Shellito will continue to serve until a permanent city manager is hired. Currently, the appointment of a new city manager is expected as early as May.
