Los Osos manager gets a raise
December 12, 2014
Kathy Kivley, the general manager of the Los Osos Community Services District received a $9,000 raise at a CSD board of directors meeting last week.
Kivley began work as the head of the Los Osos CSD in October 2013 with an annual salary of $90,000. After receiving a favorable performance review from the board, her yearly pay will now become $99,000.
The board hired Kivley even though she falsely stated on her job application that she had never previously been terminated from a position.
Prior to moving to Los Osos, Kivley served as the city manager of Atwater in Merced County. Less than a year and a half into her four-year contract, the Atwater City Council fired her.
District legal counsel Michael Seitz said the Los Osos board was fully apprised of the situation prior to hiring her. Directors praised Kivley for her knowledge and experience.
When the board hired Kivley, it also agreed to pay $7,000 to relocate her to the Central Coast.
