ALAMEDA CITY COUNCIL | Moraga Town Manager Jill Keimach has accepted an offer to become Alameda’s next city manager, the city announced Wednesday.

The Alameda City Council is expected to formally approve the hiring at its Jan. 19 meeting. If approved, Keimach’s first day will be Mar. 7.

Under the terms of the proposed contract, Keimach, who has served as Moraga’s town manager since 2010, will receive a four-year contract with a base salary of $245,000 a year.

Prior to her stint in Moraga, Keimach served as community development director in Fremont and El Cerrito.

Alameda has been without a permanent city manager since John Russo’s departure last May for the same post in Riverside.

Interim City Manager Liz Warmerdam will remain on the city staff, said the city, and return to her job as assistant city manager.
