City checking background on city manager candidate


The city of South Lake Tahoe is conducting background checks on the council’s selection for its top job.

David Jinkens, Elk Grove’s first city manager, received an offer from the council, but negotiations are ongoing, Mayor Brooke Laine said.

Details of that offer were not revealed.

Jinkens is a consultant in Manteca, where he previously worked as city manager for 12 years.

The city received 77 applications to fill the job David Childs vacated. He resigned in January after a little less than two years, taking a job with the International City/County Management Association as the western regional director.

As she did before Childs was hired, Assistant City Manager Sue Schlerf is filling the post on an interim basis for the post.
