A Ventura County community will use a current executive on its staff to temporarily fill the opening which will be created by the retirement of its longtime City Manager this summer.
The Simi Valley City Council decided Assistant City Manager Laura Behjan will become Interim City Manager in July, when Mike
Sedell leaves the post. Behjan joined the city’s staff in 1989, and has been an Assistant City Manager since 1995.
Sedell is retiring in July, after 17 years as Simi Valley’s top non-elected city official.
Behjan was planning to retire in early 2013, and is expected to serve as Interim City Manager until that time, giving the City Council time to find a permanent replacement.
