Council Holds Special Meeting After Appointed Interim City Manager Withdraws Application


CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - On Tuesday, November 30th, Charlottesville City Council held a Special/Emergency Meeting for the purpose of discussing the withdrawal of appointed Interim City Manager Mark Woolley.

Mr. Woolley reached out to Mayor Nikuyah Walker on Sunday, November 21st to verbally inform her of his decision to withdraw his application as Interim City Manager. A formal follow up letter was received by Mayor Walker on Tuesday, November 23rd. Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, City Council's earliest time to schedule a special/emergency meeting regarding the withdrawal was on November 30th.

After Tuesday’s closed session meeting, Council stated that they are considering entering into a contract with a firm for interim services. As no decisions have been made regarding interim services, Council will continue to work with City staff on the best and most efficient process to identify a firm to work with as soon as possible. Council anticipates having an update for the public in approximately two weeks.

Deputy City Managers Ashley Marshall and Sam Sanders will continue to perform enhanced duties for the City until an Interim City Manager is placed. Council wishes to thank them both for their continued service and deeply appreciates their willingness to serve in these capacities.
