Under general direction, the Neighborhood and Business Services Division Manager will manage, administer, and strategically plan the City’s Neighborhood Preservation programs, which includes managing the City’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program; overseeing the Code Enforcement Division; and furthering the City’s affordable housing policies and programs. Most importantly, this position will oversee the Monrovia Area Partnership (MAP) a community-based program initiated within the department since 2006. This program has evolved over the years, but has remained and continues to stand out as an initiative that provides great education, tools, resources, information, and motivation to get involved in the community for residents and business owners. This position has an integral role in the impact on the community.
In Monrovia, we believe that the way in which projects are accomplished is just as important as the end result. An individual who is committed to serving with humility and who can demonstrate high emotional intelligence will be successful in the role. Competitive candidates will have a hunger to continually search for better ways of doing things and be loyal to the organization and community. The selected individual will be a smart, creative, intuitive thinker and decision maker.
Competitive candidates will possess a Bachelor’s degree in social science, planning, public administration or related field and four (4) years increasingly responsible experience in municipal code enforcement, including two (2) years of supervisory experience. Possession of/ability to obtain the Advanced/Supervisory Certification from the California Association of Code Enforcement Officers (CACEO) is highly desirable.
