PARADISE, Calif. – The Paradise Town Council announced Monday a new town manager that will replace Lauren Gill who has served the position for seven years.

Kevin Phillips was selected as the new town manager and will be formally hired at the July 14 council meeting. His first official day is set for Aug. 31, the town council announced in a news release.

He will lead the town through the next phase of recovery and rebuilding. “Kevin brings a depth of knowledge about the town, our recovery and our goals that is unmatched,” said Paradise Mayor, Greg Bolin. “We know he is the right choice to lead our town into the future.”

Phillips has served as the District Manager of the Paradise Irrigation District. He led PID through the difficult period of water restoration after the 2018 Camp Fire. Prior to serving as the PID District Manager, Phillips served as the Chief Financial Officer for PID for 10 years.

The town council said they believe Kevin’s strong background in finance will be vital as Paradise navigates the rebuilding process. Phillips has been part of the Camp Fire response and recovery since Nov. 8 and has deep ties to the community.

Phillips will be replacing Lauren Gill, who will be retiring on Sept. 10, after 35 years with the Town of Paradise.

Light scattered showers are on tap for the start of your Thursday, and I'm tracking heavier rain ahead from Thursday afternoon through mid day Friday. We'll have a lull in our wet pattern late Friday through early Saturday, but even heavier rain and snow will return this weekend and persist into next week. Major travel impacts will be possible across northern California from this wet weather.
