Times are tough, yes even in Beverly Hills, where it appears Jeff Kolin, Santa Rosa’s city manager for the past nine years, is headed.

If this job change goes through, Kolin will be taking over the helm of a city that just cut 46 positions and decided to close city libraries three nights a week to balance its budget.

But before you feel sorry for this community of 90210 fame, Beverly Hills has an annual budget of nearly $400 million serving a community of about 35,000 residents.

By comparison, Santa Rosa has a budget of about $300 million serving a community of 150,000 residents.
