Acting Long Beach city manager to resign next month

Posted: Updated:

Acting Long Beach City Manager Rob Agostisi is resigning from the city next month.

He will serve as chief legal officer for the Hauppauge-based LGBT Network, according to the Network president David Kilmnick.

Agostisi's announcement comes just about two weeks after the state released an audit finding that the city overpaid current and former employees $500,000 in retirement payouts.

Among the employees were Agostisi, who was wrongly paid more than $125,000 when he left another city job in 2017, according to the audit.

Former City Manager Jack Schnirman is also on the audit list. It says he was improperly paid $52,000 when he left. Both men have said they have taken steps to return the money.

The Long Beach City Council has failed to hire a permanent city manager since Schnirman left at the end of 2017 to serve as Nassau County comptroller.

A successor to Agostisi has not yet been announced.
