The Canyon Lake City Council will formally recognize outgoing City Manager Chris Mann during the next council meeting on Wednesday, February 8, at 6:30 p.m.

The council invites the public to attend in support of Mann and to express well wishes on his future endeavors. Those who are unable to attend may arrange to submit a brief video by contacting City Clerk Ana Sauseda at [email protected].

Mann announced his resignation on January 10. The Yucaipa City Council appointed Mann to serve as its city manager, effective March 1. Mann will continue to serve the City of Canyon Lake through the end of February. 

Mann, who resides in Yucaipa, has served as city manager for the City of Canyon Lake since March 1, 2019. He is widely credited with turning around the finances of Canyon Lake over his four-year stint here, professionalizing city staffing and operations, implementing popular quality of life programs that have increased General Fund revenue by 31 percent without raising taxes, launching aggressive economic development initiatives, and taking the city’s budget from an $800,000 deficit to a surplus of more than $400,000. He also implemented the creation of the Canyon Lake Fire Department when the council decided to provide those services locally.

“I truly believe Chris Mann is simply the best manager the city has had in its 32-year history,” Mayor Jeremy Smith said. “Our entire council will be sad to see him go, but this opportunity just makes sense for Chris and for the City of Yucaipa. The Yucaipa Council, staff, business community, and residents are going to love working with Chris.”
