The Rossmoor Community Services District board has announced its unanimous selection of a new general manager, who will start Jan. 2, 2013.
Christine Montana is a CPA who has managed, simultaneously, three special districts: Surfside Colony Community Services District, Sunset Beach Sanitary District and the Surfside Colony Storm Water Protection District.
HTGroup, the consulting general manager, will manage the district's affairs until Jan. 2 and will assist in the transition. Montana will work on a part-time, 20-hours-per-week basis, with additional hours, as determined by the board, after the transition period.
The board says it had conducted an exhaustive recruitment campaign and that candidates included a former and a current city manager.
Montana has a degree in business administration from USC and has been an active certified public accountant since 1993. She lives in Huntington Beach, is married and has two children.
