Description

Pasadena residents and other stakeholders are invited to provide input on the search for the city’s next director of public works.

All meetings are from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.:

  • Tuesday, May 17, in classroom 3 at Victory Park Center, 2575 Paloma Street;
  • Tuesday, May 31, in the auditorium at Jackie Robinson Center, 1020 N. Fair Oaks Avenue;
  • Thursday, June 7, at La Casita del Arroyo, 177 S. Arroyo Boulevard.

City Manager Michael J. Beck, who will make the final selection, encourages Pasadenans to participate by voicing their opinions on the ideal qualities the next director of public works should possess and the issues the director should be prepared to undertake.      

The Public Works Department maintains city parks and street trees, streets and roadways, buildings and vehicles, sewers and storm drains, street lights and traffic signals, and trails, streams and habitats.

The new director will have an opportunity to present a fresh assessment of the department’s business practices, systems and customer orientation.

After semi-finalist candidates have been identified, Beck will appoint a community committee to assist him in selecting three to four finalists.  He anticipates appointing a new department director by October or November.

For more information call the Pasadena Human Resources Department at (626) 744-4366.
