New interim manager to pull down $158K in annual salary; 24 percent less than MMM


Mammoth’s new interim town manager has agreed in principle to a $158,000 annual salary, according to town documents.

Daniel C. Holler, who is to begin work on Tuesday, Oct. 1, is expected to agree to the terms one day later when the Town Council approves the contract at its regular meeting.

Holler, 52, arrives from Grass Valley, where he was city administrator.

Holler’s contract is $25,000 a year less than the salary given to outgoing Town Manager Marianna Marysheva-Martinez. That works out to be about 24 percent less.

It does not require the Council to provide any severance payment to Mr. Holler when and if the Council no longer requires his services. Both Marysheva-Martinez and the previous town manager, Dave Wilbrecht, earned severance packages.

More details regarding the Council’s hiring of Holler will be in the print editions of The Mammoth Times on Thursday, Oct. 3.
