Reno hires a new city manager

April 3, 2017

Sabra Smith Newby will start work as Reno’s new city manager on Monday, May 8, 2017. She was the unanimous selection of the Reno City Council following a national search conducted by Reno’s recruiting consultant. Newby is replacing former city manager Andrew Clinger, who was let go during a sexual harrassment probe, which subsequently found insubstantial evidence to support the charges.

Newby comes to Reno from an assistant county manager job in southern Nevada’s Clark County. Her two-year contract, which includes a $200,000 annual salary and a variety of enhancements, was approved on a 5 – 1 vote by the Reno City Council. The dissenting vote came from Councilman Paul McKenzie. Councilwoman Neoma Jardon was absent.

Newby will commute from Las Vegas until her children finish school in June, then move to Reno.
