Morro Bay has hired an interim city manager. Ed Kreins is scheduled to start the first week in February. Kreins was the city manager of Beverly Hills for 11 years before retiring. Since then, he's served as an interim city manager in communities across California, including Pismo Beach and Solvang.
Morro Bay has been searching for an interim city manager since December when the city council agreed to part ways with Andrea Lueker. Kreins will earn $13,000 a month.
