Located in the heart of California’s Central Valley, the City of Turlock has grown to a population of 73,631. 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.

The next City Manager will inherit a diverse, talented, and committed staff and a dynamic City Council all eager to continue their mission of making Turlock the ideal place to live and do business. In addition, this position offers several exciting opportunities including recruiting and hiring several members of the executive team; capitalizing on a new sales tax, passed by Turlock residents last fall, adding over $10 million dollars to the City budget on an annual basis; and, significant economic development prospects in the City’s Turlock Regional Industrial Park with neighboring companies such as Blue Diamond and US Cold Storage.

The City Council is seeking an innovative Senior Executive with the ability to think outside the box and solve problems in a non-bureaucratic way to serve as City Manager. Ideal candidates will bring a record of professional accomplishments that demonstrates their ability to effectively lead a diverse public organization. The successful candidate will possess the political aptitude to anticipate issues of concern and provide reasoned and sound recommendations for the Council’s consideration. Outstanding listening and communication skills are expected in order to forge and maintain cooperative working relationships with other agencies in the County, region, and state. Those committed to staff development, team-building, and who engender treating everyone fairly, equally, and respectfully will find success in this role. The ability to help the City maintain focus in order to accomplish meaningful change and not lose momentum despite having various priorities; and, a background working with diverse communities, environmental and sustainability projects, land use and development are all highly desired.
