Scott Ochoa was selected as the new Ontario city manager effective Nov. 20, the Ontario City Council announced Wednesday in a news release.
Councilmembers unanimously approved Ochoa’s appointment at their meeting Tuesday. He will replace Al Boling, who had asked to return to his former post as assistant city manager so that he could take care of family health issues.
Boling will help Ochoa transition into the city manager role. Ochoa comes to Ontario from Glendale, where he was city manager since January 2012. Ochoa also was city manager in Monrovia for eight years, according to the news release.
“Scott is uniquely qualified to manage our city at a time of tremendous opportunity, and we are fortunate to have him,” Mayor Paul S. Leon said in the release. “Scott’s experience and leadership are an ideal fit for our city, allowing us to build upon our role as a regional economic driver while providing an unparalleled living and working environment for our citizens and employees.”
Ochoa will receive $310,000 per year under the terms of his contract.
