City names Munoz public services director

Costa Mesa has promoted a city engineer to public services director.

Ernesto Munoz, 55, will head the department, which has 163 employees and a budget of $17.3 million and more than $400 million in city assets, city spokesman Bill Lobdell said in a statement.

Munoz served as interim public services director for five months prior to his appointment Tuesday and has worked for the city for the past 18 years.

Among the projects Munoz oversaw before his appointment were the restoration of the Fairview Park wetlands, Volcom Skatepark and the Jack R. Hammett Sports Complex.
