The city announced today that Rick J. Rudometkin, whose effective start date was Tuesday, was selected after a national search and competitive process.
Rudometkin will be paid $110,819 a year, city spokeswoman Mary Scott said.
Rudometkin worked for the last four years as director of transportation/public works for the County of Modoc in California. He recently served as that city’s chief administrative officer, the city said in a press release.
Rudometkin has a bachelors of science degree in business management from Woodbury University and has worked in both the public and private sector, the city said.
He has also worked as public works manager for the city of Dana Point and utility/project manager for the engineering firm Willdan.
The previous Streets Division manager was Saleem Khattak, who resigned in December 2010 to take a job with the Colorado Department of Transportation.
Scott said Allen Peterson, streets program supervisor, and Bard Lower, streets operations manager, had been splitting administrative duties while the city conducted the national search.
