Menlo Park finance director departs

Carol Augustine, Menlo Park's finance director since 2005, will be leaving the position on March 15.

As announced at the March 5 council meeting, Ms. Augustine has accepted a position with the city of Burlingame.

"We are losing one of the best finance directors in the Bay Area," said Mayor Peter Ohtaki. He praised her work on the city's bond rating, the capital improvement program, community engagement during the "Your City, Your Decision" outreach, and the dissolution of the redevelopment agency.

Ms. Augustine, who earned a bachelor's degree in accounting from the University of Texas, also served as finance director for the city of Cupertino for nearly four years prior to working for Menlo Park.
