      Real Property and Asset Manager

      FOR THE

      Economic Development Division

      This Recruitment is Open Until January 27, 2006

      The Community

      The City of Vallejo is a rapidly changing, highly diverse community of
      approximately 120,000 residents located on Interstate 80 between the cities
      of Sacramento and San Francisco. City Hall is set in a beautiful bay front
      park that overlooks historic Mare Island. The conversion of the former naval
      shipyard to civilian use is an exciting project and provides significant
      economic development opportunities to the City.

      Also located at the bay front park is the City-owned ferry which provides
      direct access to San Francisco. The popularity of this transportation method
      provides for continued development of the waterfront, marina and surrounding
      parks and businesses. Vallejo has a delightful old town area, which is home
      to beautiful Victorians and many historic buildings.

      The Organization

      Vallejo has transitioned into a sophisticated, performance-driven
      collaborative organization. Vallejo has a budget of $293 million, which
      includes a General Fund budget of $81 million and an undesignated General
      Fund reserve of $4 million. The City is a full-service municipality with
      approximately 560 employees assigned to the following departments: Police,
      Fire, Public Works, Human Resources, Finance, Community Development,
      Development Services, City Attorney and City Manager.

      The City is organized as a council-manager form of government. The City
      Council consists of seven members elected at-large for four-year,
      overlapping terms. The Mayor is the presiding officer of the Council and is
      elected at-large. The Mayor and City Council provide community leadership,
      develop policies to guide the City in delivering services and achieving
      community goals, and encourage citizen understanding and involvement.

      Residents of the City of Vallejo play a key role in advising policy
      development. Nine citizen commissions provide recommendations to the City
      Council on such matters as planning, quality of life, human resources and
      community services.
