The Lynwood City Council has appointed Jose Ometeotl as acting City Manager to replace Alma Martinez. The Council accepted Ms. Martinez’ resignation Tuesday night at its regularly scheduled meeting.

“We thank Alma for her service to the city of Lynwood and wish her well as she continues her career,” said Mayor Jose Solache. “A search for her permanent replacement will begin immediately.”

Ms. Martinez became City Manager in November 2017.

Mr. Ometeotl has served as the city’s Finance Director and recently had Assistant City Manager added to his duties. He earned his Bachelor of Science from Cornell University and earned his Master of Planning with an emphasis on Local Economic Development from the University of Southern California.

“Lynwood’s city government is committed to providing our community access to outstanding social, cultural, recreational, and economic opportunities for our residents and businesses,” said Solache.
