Job Details

The City of Tracy is made up of a community where neighbors and local merchants are welcoming and tradition, charity, and prosperity abound. The City is geographically located in the heart of California’s Central Valley and at the center of a triangle formed by the convergence of three major California interstate Freeways: 580, 205, and 5. Just an hour’s drive from the Cities of San Francisco, San Jose, and Sacramento, Tracy’s centralized location offers easy freeway access to the vast recreational resources of the Bay Area, the Delta, Yosemite National Park, and Lake Tahoe. Tracy was founded as a railroad transit hub and became an agricultural centerpiece for food processing plants and small manufacturing operations. In addition, the City has experienced a period of significant growth influenced by the East Bay area of the San Francisco megaregion. The City of Tracy is seeking a motivated and collaborative team builder and community-oriented leader to serve as its new Director of Public Works. The successful candidate will have a passion for delivering high-quality services, strengthening community connections, and leading by example. In addition to being intuitive, professional, and highly attentive to detail, the selected candidate will have a customer service mindset and will be highly responsive to the community and Council. A candidate who is motivated to drive change and deliver results will be most competitive. Any combination of education and experience which would likely provide the required knowledge and abilities is qualifying. Qualified candidates will have the equivalent to graduation from a four-year college or university with major coursework in business or public administration or a related field and five (5) years of management experience in engineering, municipal utilities and public works maintenance and operations. Previous experience at the level of Deputy or Assistant Director of Engineering, Public Works or Utilities along with a master’s degree is desirable.
