City Manager reviews 'Moments that Mattered'

Rotary Club of Tehachapi

City of Tehachapi

City Manager Greg Garrett with Rotary president Chris Naftel.

Beginning in February, City Manager Greg Garrett began a tour of civic organizations, presenting the City's "2018 Annual Review: Moments that Mattered." Although his initial audio/visual program at the Greater Tehachapi Economic Development Council encountered Wi-Fi problems, his second presentation to the Tehachapi Rotary Club on Feb. 7 went off without a hitch.

The presentation began with a video welcome by Mayor Susan Wiggins. Garrett introduced a video of each department head who in turn presented 2018 departmental updates. "Moments that Mattered" from each department were highlighted: Administraton, City Council, Airport, Economic Development, Public Works, Development Services, Police, Finance and Communications.

Garrett cited awards won by the Tehachapi Police Department for their investigative policies and by Communication Specialist Key Budge for the Kern Council of Governments award for his videos that are on the City's updated website. Other milestones mentioned were the opening of the new hospital, the plans for two new hotels in Capital Hills and the new Capital Hills development plan. Garrett was pleased to announce that, as the hills north of Hwy 58 are privately owned, an agreement has been reached to keep the hills undeveloped maintaining Tehachapi's scenic views.

Copies of the printed Annual Review will be available at City Hall.

The Rotary Club of Tehachapi meets on Thursdays at noon at The Shed, 333 E. Tehachapi Blvd., if you are interested in membership you are welcome to join us any Thursday. For more information contact Tim Trujillo at (661) 821-0086.
