CAMARILLO : City Manager Slated to Renew Contract

Camarillo City Manager J. William Little, who is credited with overseeing the city's recent financial recovery, is expected to renew his contract Wednesday for at least $102,000 per year for three years.

According to the contract, Little will receive the same percentage increase in salary each year as the city's non-management staff. The annual raise, negotiated each year, is set at 6% for 1990.

Mayor Charlotte Craven, who was on the City Council when it hired Little in October, 1988, after the city discovered $25 million in investment losses, praised Little as the "very best city manager Camarillo has ever had."

Little led the city out of near financial ruin, turning a $6-million deficit into a positive position this year, Craven said.

"He has faced and found solutions to problems that we as a City Council didn't even know existed," Craven said.
