Buellton has a new city manager.
Scott Wolfe was sworn in at Thursday night’s City Council meeting.
City leaders say Wolfe has more than 30 years of experience working with local governments in the state.
He already has goals for the city.
“Economic development I know is a major push for the council to make sure the city is financially stable in the coming years and then just general quality of life issues for the residents is going to be important also because you can’t focus simply on economic development to the detriment of the people who actually live here, so it’s a balancing act and I’m really looking forward to taking that on,” Wolfe told KSBY News.
Wolfe takes over for Marc Bierdzinski, who is retiring.
Wolfe comes to Buellton after working as the deputy city manager in Westlake Village for 19 years.
His first day on the job is July 1.
