Doug Chotkevys steps down as Dana Point city manager

November 1, 2016 by  

As of today, November 1, Doug Chotkevys is no longer the City Manager of Dana Point.

Last Tuesday, October 25, an announcement was made by then Chotkevys that he would be resigning his position with Monday, October 31 being his last day in office. Assistant City Manager Mike Killebrew is to fill in as Acting City Manager during the search for a replacement City Manager.

According to the press release:

“The Dana Point City Council and City Manager Doug Chotkevys have come to a mutual agreement by which Mr. Chotkevys is announcing his retirement effective November 1, 2016.”

Requesting a new business card printing has become commonplace among city officials in Dana Point. In addition to Killebrew taking a new position, it was only a little over a month ago that the position of Deputy City Manager was created. Mark Denny transitioned from Chief Operating Officer for Orange County to fill the new post, which also includes the titles of Director of Community Services and Director of Public Works.

At the same council meeting in which the Deputy City Manager position was created on September 20, City Manager Chotkevys indicated his intensions of retiring within the next to two or three years. Since the time table of his retirement has been escalated, Dana Point City Council will need to immediately begin the search for a permanent replacement.
