press_release_iconOXNARD, Calif.–City Manager Greg Nyhoff announced the resignation of Chief Financial Officer David Millican, effective Aug. 4, 2016. Millican suffered a serious knee injury that requires immediate surgery. Recovery is expected to take several months.

“It’s an unfortunate situation, but I support Mr. Millican in doing what’s best for his health and wish him a speedy recovery,” said City Manager Nyhoff. “Mr. Millican’s contributions have helped set the stage for the City to strengthen our fiscal practices as we continue down the road to financial recovery,” said Nyhoff.

Millican is credited for helping the City identify and correct financial practices that fell short of industry standards. He also guided the City’s efforts in establishing the fiscal year 2016-17 budget, which paints a clearer picture of the City’s financial standing.  

“I’m disappointed that this injury will prevent me from further assisting the City of Oxnard in the role of chief financial officer,” said Millican. “I’d be happy to provide support to the City in the future,” he said.

The City of Oxnard expects to reopen a nationwide recruitment this week for a new CFO. Assistant City Manager Maria Hurtado will serve as the interim CFO.

The City of Oxnard is a full-service general law city incorporated in 1903. Oxnard is the largest and most populous city in the County of Ventura, serving 200,000 culturally diverse residents. Read more about the City of Oxnard at Follow us on social media at (@CityofOxnard), and
