For Cambria CSD general manager Jerry Gruber and the five people on the Board of Directors, sorting through the water situation has been a challenging exercise in dealing with external and internal conflicts.
During public comment at the water issue special meetings, on Sept. 9 and 20, Gruber and the board members were accused of: lying to the public, acting irresponsibly and ineffectively, ignoring conflicts of interest, and some residents even publicly called for their recall or resignation. At the first meeting, Gruber encouraged attendees to "chill out on the theatrics," and he echoed that sentiment on Sept. 20, suggesting, "everybody take a deep breath and realize it's not as bad as we thought. After the Sept. 20 meeting, Gruber said that-in addition to mandating short-term maximization of Cambria's wells-board members had directed his staff to look into two long-term plans: acquiring a modular desalination unit and more efficient relocation and usage of treated wastewater.


The current manager, Jerome "Jerry" Gruber, has announced his resignation effective Oct. 22, according to an e-mail message from the city clerk.
No mention of Mr Gruber's accomplishments, reason for leaving, just rehashing the garbage posted on this forum! Did you bother to contact Mr Gruber? Atherton City Manager Jerry Gruber has announced his resignation from the Town of Atherton on September 23, 2010. Mr. Gruber's last day with the Town will be Friday, October 22, 2010. Mr. Gruber's accomplishments include maintaining a fiscally responsible course through three budget years and safeguarding the Town's reserves through escalating legal costs, multiple litigation matters including two large settlements, business license tax refunds, road impact fee refunds, and the Lehman Brothers meltdown. In addition, Mr. Gruber was responsible for restructuring the budget format, implementing a Budget Stabilization Fund, Emergency Disaster Fund and a fund balance policy for the General Fund. Gruber addressed and funded the Town's Unfunded Liability, purchased Employee Practices Liability Insurance and hired Cut Water & Associates for asset management, implemented a Master Fee Schedule and cost recovery program, and oversaw the reconciliation of all accounts and payroll going back to 2001. Mr. Gruber assembled a strong management team which includes an Assistant City Manager who oversees the Town's Human Resource Department, Police Chief, Finance Director, and Interim Building Official, in addition to the staff that was already in place including the Public Works and Planning Directors. With the help of his staff, Gruber was able to complete the Town's Housing Element, implement new financial software, allocate appropriate funds through the budget process for capital improvements projects, and ensure that Atherton remains a safe place to live by working cohesively with the Chief of Police to maintain a properly funded and staffed Police Department. Jerry has accepted a position with the Cambria Community Services District where he has owned a home since 2005. I believe that Gruber had the potential to be an excellent Town Manager but the Council failed to recognize that California law provides for a "strong City/Town Manager" with the elected officials providing policy direction. Therefore, Gruber was never really given the opportunity to lead and his tenure here was also marked by a lot of dissension amongst the Council. It is true that Mr. Gruber was an at will employee who could have been dismissed at any time by the Council. However, doing so came with a heavy price, a very generous severance package. Gruber had leverage. He had the rule of law behind him as Mr. Carpenter points out and he had financial leverage. Mr. Gruber failed to use that leverage skillfully. The town employees who I spoke with lamented Gruber's lack of assertiveness with the City Council. The complained about how by failing to stand up to the City Council, Gruber let the City Council micromanage the Town. Mr.Carpenter, the fact that there is " a lot of dissension (sic) amongst the council" was only one of the problems that Mr.Gruber was There is a history of litigation with many of those that post on this forum all of which is not complimentary and that took place long before Mr. Gruber's arrival. While I'm sure his departure has to do in part with the some of the problems created by the city council city attorney and APD, the additional problems created by individuals with a history of litigation and too much time on their hands additionally contributed to his decision to leave. While I have never had the opportunity to meet Mr. Gruber, it is my opinion that he was trying to solve the city's problems rather than trying to conduct city business clandestinely. It comes as no surprise to me that he found a new position so quickly and I'm sure he is happy to move on from all the nonsense. While you may have not been happy with his performance, I think it is only proper to wish him well rather than imply he did not possess "talent and leadership" to manage the town with the circumstances he did not create but that was ultimately dumped in his lap. My statement was "I believe that Gruber had the potential to be an excellent Town Manager" One member of the City Council said that the Council would have gotten rid of Gruber earlier but that it did not want to pay him a severance. Candidates to replace Mr. Gruber will now be even more cautious about working for this Council. By resigning Gruber has opened the door open for Johns to return to town hall. That would be Jerry Gruber In this video you will see him obstructing and denying access to the public records of the building department, while all the time he had a staff member who was qualified and available
