Hans Uslar, a long-time employee of the plans and public works department of the city of Monterey, Calif., was selected last week by the city council to be Monterey’s next city manager. Uslar had been serving as the interim city manager since his predecessor resigned last December, reported the Monterey Herald. Uslar became assistant city manager in 2014, after serving as deputy city manager for plans and public works since 2012. “His continued leadership, dedication to excellence, and his knowledge and care of our city will be invaluable in the coming years,” Mayor Clyde Roberson said in a press release. … The Tucson Airport Authority has tentatively approved a plan by the Arizona Air National Guard’s162nd Wing to replace its main security gate at Tucson International Airport. The approval followed six years of negotiations as the project will require the demolition of a hangar used by another airport tenant, reports the Arizona Daily Star. The Air National Guard will pay for replacement facilities for the tenant, under a tentative agreement with the airport authority. The existing gate does meet the Air Force’s current security standards and is too small, creating a bottleneck for vehicles during peak periods.
