Monterey County encompasses some of California’s most stunning scenery and offers an ideal year round Mediterranean climate. Miles of beautiful beaches, spectacular mountain ranges, groves of redwoods, low-rolling foothills, and scenic valleys are characteristics that contribute to the quality of life enjoyed by over 400,000 residents and the numerous tourists who visit the area year-round. Monterey County boasts world-renowned attractions such as the spectacular Big Sur Coast, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row and the Steinbeck Center.
The Public Works and Facilities Division is part of the County’s Resource Management Agency (RMA). The RMA created a classification of Chief of Public Works and Facilities for all of its Chief positions. This position has a functional title of Chief of Public Works with oversight of engineering, roads and bridges. RMA is evolving its CIP model to incorporate greater levels of contracting for project design and project management. The unit must also address extensive damages to county roads and bridges caused by the 2016 winter storms which is estimated to cost $60 million. Project management requires close internal coordination with Land Use and Administrative personnel and externally with federal and state regulatory agencies. There is also a need to work closely with regional and state agencies to secure state and federal funding for other capital projects.
The new Public Works Chief will have at least five years of administrative, supervisory, or managerial level experience that includes a wide variety of engineering activities. Graduation from an accredited college or university with a BS in Civil Engineering or a related field and valid registration as a Professional Engineer in Civil Engineering within the State of California, or the ability to secure that registration within one year, are required.
