The City has a variety of recreational opportunities, entertainment attractions, and top performing schools. San Bernardino has a bright future, with new exciting projects, special events and new ways of doing business just over the horizon. San Bernardino is, now more than ever, a city of opportunity.
The Public Works Director is responsible for managing, directing and integrating the functions, programs and activities of the Public Works Department. The CIP will be very active with $22.9 million in projects allocated in the next fiscal year. This will require a “roll up your sleeves” and hands on approach to rebuilding the department’s management team and leadership skills to inspire and motivate a staff burdened with high turnover and inadequate resources. This position will offer a unique set of challenges and will require a major commitment by the selected individual towards public service ideals. The return will be realized through community support, the sense of professional and personal satisfaction in undertaking and succeeding in this mission to transform the City of San Bernardino Public Works Department and ensuring a positive future for the community.
The new Public Works Director will have at least 10 years of progressively responsible development and municipal public works experience including five years in a management capacity and a BS/BA degree in engineering, public administration or a related field.
