Encinitas, which has lost a number of top planning and public works officials over the past 18 months, is set to lose another one.We don't recall Deane being among the more controversial staff members, as some of the other recently departed clearly were.
Ed Deane, the city’s deputy public works director, confirmed that he will be resigning effective May 5.
“I am going to be taking some time before my next step,” Deane said. “Looking to see what is available.”
Deane started his term with the city in March 2011, shortly before the hiring of former City Manager Gus Vina, who resigned in 2015 to take the city manager position in Brentwood.
The Coast News goes on to discuss the high levels of staff turnover since City Manager Gus Vina's departure. For the city's budget, that's a very good thing, as new hires receive a less outrageous pension package than legacy employees.
