Yakima's new City Manager starts his job on Tuesday. Robert Harrison is expected to make an annual base salary of $207,000. A news release from the city says Harrison was Renton’s chief administrative officer from 2018 until May of this year.  Harrison was one of four finalists for the position who were interviewed by a panel of seven community members and a panel of seven senior City staff members.
Harrison replaces Cliff Moore, who served as Yakima city manager from July 2016 through August 2019.
