VACAVILLE — A part-time staffer with more than two decades of community government work to her credit will serve as Vacaville’s interim Community Development director beginning next week, the city announced Wednesday in a news release.
Amy Feagans will oversee the day-to-day operations in the department, which coordinates all long-range planning and private development within the city, and provides planning services, building permit and inspection services.
The department is currently well into the General Plan update process.
Feagans is a part-time project coordinator for the city, a position she started in July 2013. Prior to that, she spent more than 25 years working in government, mainly in Folsom, with stops in San Anselmo and, most recently, Monterey County, according to the release.
“I plan to keep things afloat and moving forward,” Feagans said in the release. “The Community Development Department is full of great folks, and I look forward to working with all of them.”
Carson attended her final City Council meeting Tuesday, where the council members thanked her for her service. She will retire Friday after more than 30 years with the city.
“You can drive by Vacaville and know you made a difference,” Councilman Curtis Hunt said after listing off a number of Carson’s accomplishments.
Her final piece of work for the city is the ongoing General Plan update, which is expected to be finished this summer.
“My work for the city has been both challenging and rewarding,” Carson said in the release. “I will truly miss serving the city and the residents of Vacaville.”
The city is in the midst of a search to find a full-time director for the department, according to the release.
