City of Monte Sereno | City Manager

Issue Date: 8/6/2019
Final Application Date: 9/2/2019

The City of Monte Sereno (“City”), California was established in the early 1900’s as a rural agricultural community. The area was dotted with ranch houses, orchards, dairies and livestock, and the mountain slopes of the southern portion of the city contained summer homes, recreational properties and a few large estates. The beauty and tranquility of the area attracted artists and writers looking for a peaceful and inspirational place to pursue their craft. A few of the City points of interest are the home in which American author John Steinbeck wrote the Grapes of Wrath and the site of the Billy Jones Rail Road.

Unlike many other cities in Santa Clara County, Monte Sereno did not form on a crossroads or from an historical village. Consequently, a commercial core never developed in the City, leaving Monte Sereno strictly residential. Monte Sereno was incorporated in 1957, is approximately 1.6 square miles in size, and has a population of about 4,000 residents. The City’s annual revenue is typically $4 million and maintains a conservative positive general reserve.

Monte Sereno is a General Law city, comprised of a council-manager form of government. The City Council has five members who are elected at-large to overlapping, four-year terms. The Council Members themselves elect the Mayor and Mayor Pro Tempore for a term of one year. The City Council meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm in the Monte Sereno City Council Chambers at City Hall and the selected City Manager should anticipate attendance at all City Council meetings.

The City Council of the City of Monte Sereno is conducting an executive search for an experienced administrative officer to serve as the next City Manager. This is an outstanding opportunity for an engaged professional to provide leadership, strong management, and transparency to a well-resourced city with a talented staff. This executive-level career opportunity encompasses the full range of duties as well as deals with an elected body and a community that welcomes and celebrates diversity. In addition to handling regional issues, local topics revolve around community values and quality of life issues specific to preserving community character and promoting environmental sustainability, enhanced mobility, quality public services, and community safety.

The pathway for success in Monte Sereno will require a City Manager who is skilled in facilitating public discussion and delivering City services with a high degree of planning, transparency, resident engagement, fiscal responsibility, and quantifiable results. Additionally, proactively following pending and future legislation, and at times, influencing legislation and proactively developing mitigating measures on behalf of the elected body, especially those policies that impact the community, is of major concern to the City Council.

The City Council is seeking candidates who have strong communication, interpersonal skills, and public relations skills in order to more effectively address a wide-range of community concerns while also providing strong leadership to staff in an organization that values a culture of diligence, collaboration, and cooperation. Candidates who enjoy and embrace this high level of active community engagement will be well received. Additionally, a commitment to inclusiveness, transparency, and accountability will be a successful combination for this highly educated and culturally diverse community. Experience or knowledge of council-manager form of government is also desired.

Experience: Prefer relevant municipal administrative experience or private sector equivalent. Experience will ideally include high-level administrative and/or executive capacity involving responsibility for planning, organizing, directing, and financing a varied work program.

Education: A Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university is required and major course work in public administration, business administration, planning, or a related field is preferred. A Master’s degree or other advanced degree is also preferred.

The compensation package will remain consistent with the high value placed on the level of responsibilities for this executive position. A mutually negotiated employment contract will be developed and reviewed on an annual basis.

Early submittals are strongly encouraged. Interested candidates should submit a compelling cover letter and comprehensive resume no later than Monday, September 2, 2019 to the candidate coordinator:
