Terry Matz, Adios
Word has it that today is the final day on the job for contract Interim Assistant City Manager, Terry Matz.
EXPERIENCE PROVIDED NEEDED EXPERTISE
Matz has a long career in municipal governance and was retained by CEO Tom Hatch earlier this year to bring some much-needed expertise to help with special projects. He's been working three days a week for the most part.
OCFA PROPOSAL RAMROD
In his most recent assignment Matz was the project manager for the Orange County Fire Authority proposal to take over Fire and Emergency Medical Services for Costa Mesa. From all appearances he did a fine job.
NO DECISION YET ON PERMANENT REPLACEMENT
Hatch has been actively recruiting a permanent replacement for himself but, according to Interim Communication Director Bill Lobdell, has not yet made a final decision. So, Matz' departure means one less contractor at City Hall. He will return to his retirement, leaving behind a job well-done.
