• Jonathan Bagley, who graduated from Fresno Pacific University with a bachelor’s degree in criminology. He grew up in Rancho Cucamonga and was a water polo athlete in high school and college. He also completed a summer internship with the Fontana P.D. in 2020 before being hired.
----- ALSO during the meeting, the City Council recognized Mark Denny, who is resigning from his position as city manager to accept a position in the private sector, closer to his home in San Clemente.
Denny, who served in Fontana for 18 months, was praised for his ability to guide the city through the difficult period of the COVID-19 crisis.
Denny made budget improvements and established a leadership program for the city, said City Councilmember Peter Garcia.
“This council has accomplished a lot, and I was proud to be a part of it,” Denny said.
