San Jose City Council discusses future of city manager

SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- San Jose's City Council met behind closed doors for several hours and sources tell ABC7 News the city manager's future was part of the agenda.

Tuesday's meeting came after last week's demotion of Deputy City Manager Alex Gurza.

Gurza oversaw labor relations and made more than $200,000 per year. He now holds an entry-level parks department job and makes $64,000 per year.

Gurza's boss, City Manger Ed Shikada's contract expires in July.

A new mayor, Sam Liccardo, and five new councilmembers will take office next year.

And they may launch a search for a new city manager.
