Chuck Hays, who has been the public works director for the City of Fontana, was appointed to the position of deputy city manager of development services during the Jan. 28 City Council meeting.

Hays said he was thankful to be able to serve Fontana during the past 18 years.

"In those 18 years, the City Council has invested over a quarter of a billion dollars worth of park improvement projects for the community. I was the lucky person chosen to manage those projects," he said at the meeting. "I look forward to many many more years … I am very proud to work for this remarkable city."

In his new role, Hays will manage and direct the Engineering, Community Development, Building and Safety, and Public Works departments. He succeeds Debbie Brazill, who retired last December.

"We are confident in Mr. Hays' leadership abilities," said Interim City Manager Michael Milhiser. "His wealth of experience and knowledge will continue to keep Fontana moving forward."
