McNeely was unanimously approved to serve as interim city manager at Wednesday’s city council meeting. Elected officials agreed to extend him a contract.

He is replacing City Manager Rob Field, who announced his plans to resign last month.

McNeely emphasized that while he is a temporary replacement, he is there to get results.

“I do have some expertise in that, but I will follow your lead. But I want you to know that it's for as long as I'm here. You have me 100%. And I'm here to support you,” said McNeely.

McNeely was San Bernardino’s city manager from 2009 to 2012. He left abruptly in 2012 blaming a toxic environment at City Hall.

McNeely’s new employment agreement is for 960 hours through June 30, but can be extended an additional 960 hours on July 1. He will make $137 an hour.
