Located in the heart of California’s Central Valley, the City of Turlock has grown to reach a population of 73,631 based on the US Census Bureau’s latest population records. Although Turlock is the second largest city in Stanislaus County, it continues to maintain a small-town atmosphere and friendly attitude with the conveniences and opportunities of a larger city.
This position works under the Director of the Development Services to plan, organize, coordinate, and direct the engineering programs; coordinates the engineering aspects of public works maintenance and operations activities; provides technical staff assistance to the City Manager and other department directors; and performs other job-related work as required. This is a mid-management classification responsible for the management of the Engineering Division and programs/functions involving the management, coordination, and delivery of the City-wide engineering and surveying service. In addition, the job incumbent has direct responsibilities for overseeing and directing the work of subordinate staff. This position differs from other positions involved in engineering functions in the broader responsibility for developing and implementing programs, systems, and procedures that affect the overall City operations and multiple departments and units. Duties and responsibilities are performed in accordance with law, ordinance, and City policy.
The ideal candidate must be able to work with minimal direct supervision, exercise independent judgment, and demonstrate initiative in complex responsible and sensitive areas. The City Engineer supervises professional and paraprofessional engineering and surveying staff, as well as administrative support staff, directly or through subordinate supervisory staff and as such must be a strong and approachable leader. Qualifications include five (5) years of increasingly responsible professional municipal engineering experience, including three (3) years of administrative/supervisory responsibility, and education and training equivalent to a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university in Civil Engineering.
