This is the best part of our job: Today we get to congratulate both the City of Pacifica, California, and Lisa Petersen, the city’s new Director of Public Works.
Lisa will officially take the reins on July 6, in the middle of what is prime road maintenance season for most NorCal municipalities. The residents of her new city will be pleased to learn that Petersen has a track record of improving the PCI (pavement condition index) in cities in which she has worked, most recently the Town of Los Gatos in Santa Clara County, where she has been Assistant Public Works Director since May 2014.
A licensed civil engineer, Petersen has more than 25 years of public sector experience and spent two years at a private engineering firm, as well. She is ready to make a difference in Pacifica with her strategic planning, infrastructure improvement and employee development skills.
The City has found a consummate public works professional, who is a great fit for the seaside community and will make her mark quickly and skillfully. It’s why we do what we do! Follow us on social media to keep apprised of local government opportunities in your sector!
