Sitting behind the desk in his 13th-floor office, City Manager James C. Hankla has a sweeping view of Long Beach's waterfront. It is a view he is proud of, one that bears his personal stamp.

Long Beach City Manager James Hankla tried unsuccessfully to force Police Chief Lawrence L. Binkley to take early retirement before temporarily removing him as head of the department last month, the chief's attorney said Thursday.

When the Long Beach police chief was fired last month, it was City Manager James C. Hankla's doing. When the city was negotiating with the Walt Disney Co. for a waterfront theme park last year, the City Council stood on the sidelines and let Hankla conduct the talks. And when the budget of more than $1 billion is presented to the council every year, it is crafted by Hankla's staff.
