    THE COMMUNITY & ORGANIZATION

    In Thousand Oaks we have much to be thankful for an exceptional Southern California community with family-friendly amenities that are the envy of cities across our region. Fifty years of achievement have made Thousand Oaks one of the most sought after places in California to live, work, raise a family, and recreate.

    The City of Thousand Oaks, incorporated in 1964, is located in beautiful Ventura County, 12 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, nestled against the Santa Monica Mountains. The City is surrounded by 15,500 acres of publicly owned open space, containing 75 miles of trails for hiking, biking, or leisurely walking. Another source of pride in our community is the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, a beacon for our region featuring world-class entertainment, musicals, concerts, childrens shows, ballet, and much more.

    A family-oriented community of 129,000, Thousand Oaks is home to excellent schools, outstanding parks, and numerous shopping opportunities. The City has adopted a balanced budget with appropriate reserves throughout its history due to conservative management and adherence to long-term financial strategic plans. City Departments include City Managers Office, City Attorneys Office, City Clerk, Human Resources, Finance, Community Development, Cultural Affairs, Library and Public Works. Police and Fire services are provided by Ventura County.

    THE PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT

    The Public Works Department, with 185 employees is responsible for the overall planning, maintenance, operation and improvement of public infrastructure, including engineering, streets, sidewalks, street trees, public landscaping, storm drainage, sewer, water, and traffic signals. Other services provided by the Department include: emergency preparedness, public transit, recycling, and solid and hazardous waste collection services. The Fiscal Year 2015-2016 Department operating budget is over $50 million and the Capital Budget is approximately $30 million. The Department is responsible for operating and maintaining an infrastructure with an estimated value of more than $2 Billion.

    I t is an exciting time to work in Thousand Oaks. The organization is in the midst of a far-reaching People Strategy that seeks to align our resources for the service delivery needs of the future. We are anticipating significant employee turnover in the next five years due to anticipated retirements and efforts are underway to insure that we are prepared for these significant changes. The Department strategic plan was recently completed with input from all Public Works staff and implementation is now in progress. Across the organization, we are striving to insure that services are delivered in the most effective, collaborative, and efficient manner possible.
