According to the agenda, the selection will be Alfred Zelinka, who would be stepping down from four years as city manager for the City of Riverside. If his contract is approved, he will continue to work in Riverside through June 3 and assume his new duties in Surf City thereafter.

Zelinka has served Riverside as community and economic development director, assistant city manager and – since May 2018 – as city manager. Oliver Chi was as Huntington Beach’s city manager from 2019 to 2021, when he vacated his job to become the chief executive officer of the City of Irvine.

Sean Joyce has been interim city manager since then.

The council meeting is scheduled to commence at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers, 2000 Main St. (at Yorktown Avenue). It will be held in person. Attendees are encouraged to wear a face covering.
