New Sergeant sworn in – City Treasurer resigns
Tehachapi City Council Update
August 20, 2022
The Tehachapi City Council began their Aug. 15 meeting with City Clerk Tory Marsh swearing in Sergeant James Clark, the newest member of the Tehachapi Police Department. Clark comes from Los Angeles and brings with him ten years police experience. Police Chief Kent Kroeger said he was delighted to have Clark as a member of his department.
Mayor Phil Smith presented a Certificate of Recognition to City Treasurer Stacy Curry who recently turned in her resignation. The City Council voted 5-0 to advertise for a replacement to hold the office until the end of Curry's term in November of 2024 rather than incur the expense of a special election as it is too late for the office to be placed on the 2022 November ballot. The city will advertise to fill the vacancy with a Tehachapi resident to fulfill the remainder of Ms. Curry's term.
The Tehachapi City Council meets on the first and third Monday of the month at 6 p.m. They are currently meeting at the Police Department Community Room, 220 W. C St.
