Statement from Los Altos Hills Mayor Kavita Tankha
Los Altos Hills City Manager Carl Cahill has advised the City Council of his intention to retire from his position of City Manager effective as of October 29, 2021. Carl started work with the Town in 1999 and served as Planning Director before being appointed to the position of City Manager. Carl has served as City Manager for the Town of Los Altos Hills for fifteen years.
As Mayor and on behalf of the City Council, the City Council appreciates Carl’s 22 years of service to the Town and its residents. Carl and the dedicated staff he has managed have provided thoughtful analysis and recommendations to the City Council, the Planning Commission and Town Committees, and we wish Carl the very best.
The City Council will now commence a process for selection of a new City Manager. We anticipate that process will take four to six months to complete. This process will start with issuance of an RFP to select a recruiter followed by a nationwide search for qualified candidates who will assist the City Council and staff to continue to implement the Town’s goals and priorities and to identify innovative ways to continue to provide excellent services to our Town residents. Los Altos Hills is an exceptional Town to live and work in and the City Council looks forward to finding a City Manager who can serve the needs of our diverse and engaged community.
