view arial,sans-serif;”>Camarillo City Manager Bruce Feng announced his retirement after a 37-year career in public service with the last ten of those years working for the City of Camarillo. Feng’s last day will be April 5, 2016.

Feng was unanimously appointed by the Camarillo City Council to City Manager in 2010 after serving five years as Assistant City Manager. Prior to Camarillo, Feng worked for the City of Burbank for 22 years in a variety of positions which included deputy city manager, public works director, assistant community development director, and chief building official. He began his career in 1979 with the City of San Diego as a plan check engineer and worked two years with the City of Santa Ana as a civil engineer. He is a licensed State of California Civil Engineer.

Feng said, “I am extremely grateful to have served the Camarillo community along with our outstanding City Council and City staff. I feel privileged and honored to have worked as a public servant for so many years and very fortunate for the experience working in such a top notch city as Camarillo. I am very proud of our accomplishments.”

Mayor Morgan said they were not surprised of Feng’s retirement announcement given his long career in local government service and desire to spend time with his grandchildren. Morgan said, “Bruce will be missed. He has done much to strengthen the City, including building a strong management team, correcting a budget deficit into a sustainable budget while in the midst of the redevelopment funds abolishment, and resolving many major issues. The groundwork for several major projects has been laid as well.”

Feng said, “I started out my career as a junior engineer in San Diego with many dreams and aspirations which came true. I will miss the camaraderie and teamwork and wish everyone continued success. My wife, Martha, and I look forward to life’s next adventures with our family and friends.”

Mayor Morgan and the City Council will be making a decision on the next steps to be taken for selection of a new City Manager.
