Santa Barbara County Community Gets New Public Works Director


Key post oversees $150 million dollar plus budget

A South Coast city is getting a new Public Works Director.

Clifford Maurer will oversee the City of Santa Barbara’s largest department, which has a $150 million dollar plus annual budget, and nearly 300 employees. Maurer was chosen from a pool of more than 50 candidates after a nationwide search.

He’s currently the Director of Public Services & Engineering for the City of Coronado. The post is a key one for the city, because the director manages everything from the city’s water, and wastewater systems to street maintenance.
