City of Livermore Appoints Tracy Administrative Services Director as Assistant City ManagerPosted: Oct 23, 2014
Location: Tracy, Calif.
The City of Tracy Administrative Services Director, Jenny Haruyama, has been appointed as the Assistant City Manager for the City of Livermore, California. Mrs. Haruyama began serving as Tracy’s first Administrative Services Director in 2012 – bringing more than 20 years of municipal experience to the position.
“While I am looking forward to new challenges with the City of Livermore, my departure from Tracy is bittersweet,” stated Jenny Haruyama. “It didn’t take long to learn that Tracy is a big city with a small town heart. It has been a privilege to serve the Tracy community, and work for a city organization committed to the profession of local government.”
Mrs. Haruyama was instrumental in balancing the City of Tracy’s General Fund budget without the use of reserves, increasing Tracy’s General Fund reserves by $7.4 million (or 22%) over a two-year period, and implementing a General Fund Reserve policy which expanded the City’s reserve designations. She also led an open government initiative to build community trust, while enhancing public access to City records and financial information, and played a key role in the development of a High-Tech Incentive Policy and Program to attract and retain technology- based and manufacturing businesses.
“Jenny’s accomplishments are extensive there are far too many to enumerate,” stated Tracy City Manager, Troy Brown. “Jenny served Tracy very well, and upon her departure she is taking a highly professional work ethic and can-do attitude; she will be sorely missed.”
Prior to working for the City of Tracy, Mrs. Haruyama worked for the Town of Los Gatos, serving in a variety of positions over a period of 12 years, including the Assistant Director of Budget and Finance, Assistant to the Town Manager, and Administrative Analyst. Mrs. Haruyama also served as a Senior Management Analyst for the City of Rancho Cucamonga.
Mrs. Haruyama will begin her duties as the Assistant City Manager of Livermore on December 2, 2014.
