PASO ROBLES, CA, March 18, 2021 – The City Council has appointed Greg Carpenter as Interim City Manager, effective April 19th. He will serve in this role for at least a few months while the City Council continues the search for a permanent City Manager. 

Mr. Carpenter has 32 years of experience in local government, primarily for the cities of Long Beach and El Segundo. He retired as the City Manager of El Segundo in mid-2019. Prior to becoming a City Manager, Mr. Carpenter’s worked primarily in the areas of planning, building, and community development, which will be particularly valuable during his time in Paso, given the significant residential and commercial development activity on the horizon. He and his family have a vacation home in the Paso Robles area and have been coming up to the area regularly for many years. Mr. Carpenter holds a master’s degree in Public Administration from Cal State Long Beach.

Mr. Carpenter was introduced at Tuesday night's City Council meeting and told the Council that he is “looking forward to continuing the good work that you and your staff and your community partners are all engaged in while you continue the search and make the important decision of finding a permanent City Manager for your City.” 

Current City Manager Tom Frutchey’s last day will be April 16th. Staff and community members will have a chance to celebrate Mr. Frutchey on Friday, April 16, 2021 from 4:00-6:00 PM, location and details to be announced in compliance with COVID-19 guidelines at the time.

During his five-plus years with the City of Paso Robles, Mr. Frutchey led the City organization, working with the Council and staff to approve significant housing development that will pay its own way; upgrade the City’s water and wastewater systems; increase fire response capabilities by 50%; facilitate the State’s sale of the Boys School property to return it to productive use; reduce the City’s unfunded liabilities; increase reserves; and oversee many other efforts.

Mr. Frutchey noted, “I have truly enjoyed working with and for the people of Paso Robles.  The Council, staff, and community are all committed to making Paso an even greater place to live, work, and play, while also preserving its unique heritage and character.  Thank you sincerely for the opportunity to serve you.”
