Community Invited to Give Input on Ideal Qualities of Next Public Works Director

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 to 8 p.m.:

* Tuesday, May 17, in classroom 3 at Victory Park Center, 2575 Paloma St.
* Tuesday, May 31, in the auditorium at Jackie Robinson Center, 1020 N. Fair Oaks Ave.
* Tuesday, June 7, at La Casita del Arroyo, 177 S. Arroyo Blvd.

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.

“I value the opinions of everyone in the community and look forward to their input,” said Beck.

There is also an opportunity to provide input online at http://cityofpasadena.net/Director_Public_Works_Recruitment.

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.
