At a special meeting held last Thursday, the Carson City Council appointed David C. Biggs to serve as city manager. He will start Sept. 26.

Biggs, who signed a three-year contract with the city, will be formally introduced at the Council’s Tuesday meeting. Biggs’ appointment came after a six-month-long search. He replaces Jerome Groomes, who resigned in January after 12 years for another job.

Raised in Orange County, Biggs currently lives in Redondo Beach and is serving as the interim assistant city administrator of Montebello. Prior to that, he was city manager in Tustin and Morgan Hill; assistant city manager in Redondo Beach; and economic development director for Huntington Beach.
