VACAVILLE — Barton Brierley has been selected as the next community development director for Vacaville.

“We’re excited that Barton is joining our team,” City Manager Laura Kuhn said Friday in a city press release. “He brings a lot of experience and a new perspective to Vacaville. His strengths, together with the strengths of our current planning staff, will help lead community development into the future.”

Brierley is currently the planning and building director for Newburg, Ore., where he has worked for the past 15 years. His first day on the job in Vacaville is April 16. He replaces Maureen Carson, who retired at the end of January after more than 30 years with the city.

“I am very excited to come to Vacaville,” Brierley said in the press release. “I have been very impressed with the community’s downtown, the friendliness of the people and the sense of pride.”

A graduate of Oregon State University, Brierley also worked in the Grants Pass, Ore. planning department for 11 years.

“Community involvement is very important to me and I hope to become very engaged,” Brierley said in the press statement.

    I guess the City has bunches of money now. It used to be common practice in the face of our economic struggle to leave positions unfilled until happy times return. So does that mean the pay of the working City employees can be restored now or are you going to make them wait another 18 months? The working City employees took about a 10 percent pay cut last October for 2 years... at the same time every other agency started restoring pay to their working employees. It seems the working City employees are not that much of a priority for the City Council and Mayor.
