The hiring of David Kiff as interim city manager tops the agenda for Monday’s meeting of the Huntington Beach City Council.

Kiff, who served as city manager of Newport Beach from 2009 to 2018, would serve as the city’s top appointed official until a permanent replacement is made.

The opening developed when Fred Wilson, who spent 10 years in the job, announced his retirement. Lori Ann Farrell-Harrison, assistant city manager was originally slated to take the interim slot, but was hired to become the new city manager for Costa Mesa.

Kiff has a bachelor of science degree in business administration from CSU Sacramento and a master of government administration degree from the University of Pennsylvania.

Most recently, he’s served as interim executive director for the Association of California Cities/Orange County.

The council meets in its chambers in the Civic Center, 2000 Main St. (at Yorktown Avenue) at 6 p.m.
