Redwood City, CA - November 12, 2010 - The City Council of Redwood City has named Human Resources Director Robert (Bob) Bell to serve as the interim City Manager, upon the resignation of City Manager Peter Ingram earlier this week.

We also know we will be working closely with him over the next several months in selecting our next City Manager.”
