ONTARIO – Showing gratitude to a man who served as their city manager for more than 12 years, City Council members on Tuesday night presented Greg Devereaux with a key to the city.

Devereaux was appointed last month to serve as the San Bernardino County chief administrative officer.

“He left an indelible mark on the city of Ontario and really created the sense of stability we’ve all enjoyed for many years,” Mayor Paul Leon said.

The meeting was the final one that Devereaux would preside over for the city before he starts his new job on Feb. 16.

Devereaux was key in bringing economic development strategies to Ontario, Councilman Alan Wapner said.

Devereuax’s vision and direction helped the city survive the ongoing economic crisis, Wapner said.

“You’ve accomplished more than any other city manager and I have no reservations saying that,” Leon said.
