Canyon Lake was incorporated on December 1, 1990, when it became the 22nd city in Riverside County. “The Canyon Lake Incorporation Committee set a record when it won approval from LAFCO in just three minutes and 22 seconds,” said Fred Christensen, who guided Canyon Lake through its incorporation process and served as interim city manager.
Congressman Al McCandless sworn in Canyon Lake’s charter City Council: Alfred “Bill” Trembly, Annabelle Bates, Gene Bourbonnais, John Giardinelli, and Jack Wamsley.
Supervisor Norton Younglove presented the new city with a plaque commemorating the day, as well as with a POW/MIA flag and a small piece of the Berlin Wall that he picked up on his recent visit to Germany.
At the first City Council meeting, Trembly was appointed mayor, Bates was appointed mayor pro-tem, Christensen was formally appointed interim city manager, and Pat Wallace was appointed interim city clerk.
The following year, the City Council appointed Jeff Butzlaff to serve as Canyon Lake’s first permanent city manager. One of his first tasks was to develop the city’s first annual budget.
