New Administrator Ogden Tapped By Waterford
Tim Ogden, Riverbank's director of economic development and housing, has been named city administrator of Waterford and will assume that post on May 26.

Ogden has held his current position for the last three and a half years, and also worked for the cities of Modesto and Ceres and holds a master's degree in business administration.

Waterford City Council unanimously chose Ogden following an extensive selection process that included pre-screening by an executive recruitment firm, a two-panel interview process and in-depth reference and background checks. Ogden will succeed Charles Deschenes who retires May 31 after serving 13 years as city administrator.

"The City of Waterford is pleased to announce the appointment of Tim Ogden as our new city administrator," said Mayor Charlie Goeken in a press release. "We would like to thank the executive search firm of Peckham & McKenney for their extensive candidate search. There were many excellent candidates that applied for the position and we would like to thank each of them for their interest in the position. Tim's experience, knowledge and the relationships he has established in the county were the deciding factors in his selection. I look forward to Tim carrying on Chuck's common sense approach to government and to him becoming an integral part of our community."

"I have enjoyed the privilege of serving the wonderful community of Riverbank, and now look forward to the exciting opportunities in Waterford," said Ogden. "Together with the council, staff and community we'll continue to make Waterford a great place to live, work and play."

Ogden said Monday he expected the Riverbank City Council to discuss the announcement at that night's meeting (May 9) and for his last day at work in Riverbank to be May 20. He is a resident of Modesto and plans to continue living in that city.
