City of Atwater, California
City Manager
Located in Merced County, the City of Atwater (population 30,000) is a small, close-knit community influenced by the roots of local agriculture and a former military base. Aptly located on State Highway 99 in the Central San Joaquin Valley, Atwater is a two-hour drive from San Francisco and a one and one-half hour drive from the state capital of Sacramento with convenient access to popular destinations like Yosemite National Park, Monterey, and Carmel. The City Council is now seeking a City Manager—a strong leader and experienced generalist who will come in and hit the ground running. The desired candidate will bring proven leadership experience, clear and effective communication skills, and solid interpersonal skills. He or she will effectively represent the City’s policies, programs, and services with the public, community organizations, City staff, and other government agencies, and exercise open and transparent relationships with all elected officials. The City will benefit from a candidate who is pro-business and has economic development background and experience. A candidate with demonstrated experience working with budgets and contracting for services with Fire and other public services, will also be valued. At minimum, candidates must possess a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university with a degree in Public Administration, Business Administration, or a closely related field, and have five (5) years of broad and extensive management, supervisory, and administrative experience, preferably including work in a public agency involving development and administration of programs, budgets, and public services. A Master’s degree is highly desirable. Candidates must possess a valid Class C California Driver’s License. The annual salary range for the incoming City Manager is open and dependent upon qualifications.
