Moses Lake loses its deputy city manager

Alvarado

MOSES LAKE — Gilbert “Gil” Alvarado is no longer serving as the Deputy City Manager for Moses Lake after having tendered his resignation last Friday.

Though the Herald initially reported that Alvarado had given his two weeks notice to city officials Friday, staff with the city informed the Herald Wednesday that Alvarado “will not be coming in today or after today.”

It is currently unclear whether Alvarado resigned without offering a two week notice or whether the city cut short the courtesy leeway time. City Manager John Williams, who confirmed Tuesday that Alvarado had tendered his resignation, declined to comment further on “personnel matters.”

Alvarado has served in a dual role as the community development director and the deputy city manager since mid-2016, briefly served as interim city manager for a few months in 2015, and was employed by the city for over a decade.
