With Jesse Quirion's promotion to interim public works director for Menlo Park, the city was left with a vacant transportation manager position. The city announced that Nikki Nagaya, a senior transportation engineer for the city, has been appointed as interim transportation manager, effective June 20.
Ms. Nagaya, who joined the city in 2013, previously worked for Fehr & Peers for seven years with a focus on bicycle and pedestrian transportation planning in the South Bay.
Another departure has created yet another vacancy -- Rebecca Fotu, environmental programs manager, became the latest higher-level staff to after announcing she had accepted a position in New Zealand. Ms. Fotu, whose salary with Menlo Park had been $105,730, had her last day with the city on June 18.
