Menlo Park public works director leaving for Millbrae

by Sandy Brundage

Menlo Park Public Works Director Chip Taylor has confirmed that he has accepted a similar position with the city of Millbrae.

"The position is closer to where I live, so it will allow more opportunities for time with my family," Mr. Taylor told the Almanac on May 29. His last day with Menlo Park will be June 19.

He started working for Menlo Park in 2005, according to the city's human resources department. After serving as transportation manager, he was promoted to his current position as public works director in 2011 following the departure of Kent Steffens. Mr. Taylor now earns $163,199 a year.

"(Mr. Taylor's) professionalism, expertise, management skills, and sense of humor will be missed and hard to replace," said Mayor Ray Mueller, who worked with him for four years, first as a transportation commissioner and then as a City Council member.

Menlo Park has also lost two planners within the past eight months, at a time when the city is facing a development boom.
