The City Council, by a 5-0 vote on Tuesday night, appointed Assistant City Manager Paul Brady Jr. to succeed incumbent City Manager William Woollett when Woollett steps down Aug. 1. The council, by a similar unanimous vote, on Feb. 15 had acted to remove Woollett from the city manager position. Woollett, 60, is the first and only city manager Irvine has had, and the council's action in forcing him to step down brought strong criticism from some residents.
