Goodbyes are never easy and this one was especially difficult for the City. After almost 19 years of service to our Goleta community, Director of Neighborhood Services and Public Safety, Vyto Adomaitis, announced he would be leaving the City. The Goleta City Council honored Vyto with a City Tile at its February 2, 2021, City Council meeting. Vyto had been with the City since its incorporation in 2002 and spent the last 15 years as Director of Neighborhood Services and Public Safety. He is now working as the Community Development Director for the City of Oxnard.
We wish Vyto well in his new endeavors and are pleased to announce that Jaime Valdez is serving as Interim Neighborhood Services & Public Safety Director. Jaime was most recently Principal Project Manager in the Neighborhood Services & Public Safety Department and has been with the City of Goleta for nearly 14 years.
“I look forward to continuing to serve the City of Goleta in this new capacity as Interim Director of the Neighborhood Services & Public Safety Department. It is my hope that my experience and history with the department will help ensure continuity until a permanent director is announced.”
