City of Long Beach logoToday, City Manager Tom Modica announced the forthcoming departure of Deputy City Manager Katy Nomura, who joined the City of Long Beach in June 2022. Her last day with the City will be June 2, 2023.

“During her year with the City, Katy spearheaded the development of multiple critical initiatives and laid the groundwork for their successes,” said City Manager Tom Modica. “I wish her all the best on her future endeavors.”

Over the last year, Nomura worked as part of the City’s executive management team to support various City policies and programs. Most notably, she led a team during the community engagement and development of the City’s forthcoming sidewalk vending and food truck regulations where, under her leadership, the team successfully completed extensive outreach, analysis and development efforts. Nomura also supported the development and outreach process for the Cambodian American Cultural Center feasibility study, facilitated tax reductions for cannabis equity businesses, and played an integral role on the intergovernmental coordination team supporting the City’s homeless emergency efforts.

“While my time with the City of Long Beach was brief, it was an honor to serve such a beautiful and culturally diverse community,” said Katy Nomura. “I am grateful to have been part of this city family and the community it serves.”

Manager of Government Affairs Tyler Bonanno-Curley will serve as the acting deputy city manager while the City conducts a national recruitment to permanently fill the position.

“Tyler has an expansive knowledge of the inner workings of our City and cares deeply for our community,” said City Manager Tom Modica. “As we search for a new deputy city manager, I am confident Tyler will thoughtfully continue these important projects. The City and the community are in good hands with Tyler.”

Nomura is departing her role with the City to attend to personal matters.
