Johnson previously announced that he plans to retire in 2013, but until then, he will help Young work with the council, the public and legislative liaison.

Laura Triggs will continue to be acting chief financial officer, Young said, and a process to appoint a permanent CFO will take place after the budget process is finished.

Young said the changes will not require any additional resources the rest of the year or into fiscal 2013.

Deputy city manager Michele Evans will focus on public safety activities, as well as serving as liaison to the courts. The directors of the human rights office and the general services office will also report to her.

Deputy city manger Mark Jinks will concentrate on development and planning, transportation, housing and historic Alexandria. He’ll also be the link to the convention and visitors association, local business and economic development groups.

Assistant city managers Debra Collins and Tom Gates will split human and social services, parks and youth, for her, and management improvement initiatives, including the information technology and internal audit departments, for him.

Tony Castrilli, director of communications and public information, and Cheryl Orr, director of human resources, will continue to report directly to Young.
