Fresno City Leader Quits: Moving To Burbank

Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

Mark Scott on Wednesday announced that he will resign from his position as city manager.

Southern California newspaper the Burbank Leader reports that Scott has been chosen as the new city manager for Burbank.

He was chosen after a six-month search.

Scott, a Fresno native, returned to work in Fresno in April 2010 after spending 14 years as city manager in Beverly Hills.

Scott's last day at the City of Fresno will be July 19.

"Mark Scott has served as City Manager at a very unusual time – unusually challenging and unusually busy," Mayor Swearengin said at a news conference held Wednesday morning.

Bruce Rudd, a 37-year city employee who currently serves as the assistant city manager, will take over as city manager.

Rudd's salary will be negotiated.
