Three Retire From Service to The CityBy: Courier Staff Writer
A reception was held Tuesday at Beverly Hills City Hall for three employees, who combined, have put in over 60 years working for The City.
Mayor Linda Briskman, presented Chief Financial Officer Don Oblander, City Clerk Nina Webster, and Assistant City Manager Dan Webster with proclamations for their years of accomplishments.
Oblander is retiring from The City today after 25 years. He began his career at The City on April 14, 1980 as director of finance administration and was appointed to CFO on July 1, 2001.
Under Oblanderís guidance, The City has enjoyed tremendous credibility in the business community and has won awards every year for excellence in budget, accounting and reporting practices from the Government Financial Officers Association, the California Society of Municipal Financial Officers and other industry goups.
City Clerk Nina Webster will retire on July 1 after 20 years of public service. She began her career here in 1985 as executive secretary to the city manager and was appointed officer manager in 1987. On July 18, 1998, she became city clerk of BH and has presided over four municipal elections with professionalism and grace under pressure.
Dan Webster also retires July 1 after more than 18 years of service. He began his BH career as street maintenance superintendent and was appointed director of public works on January 27, 1992. He was promoted deputy city manager in 2001 and last October was appointed assistant city manager.
Webster has been instrumental in the implementation of numerous public works projects juring his career, including a citywide recycling program, the BH Water Treatment Plant and Public Works Administration building which increased the reliability of the water supply in Beverly Hills and brought another architecturally significant building to The City.
Other projects and initiatives that were greatly influenced by Webster include the Hyperion Treatment Plant negotiations to safeguard The Cityís interests, resuming the utilization of groundwater, the Woodland Reservoir and Booster Station No.2 construction projects, the citywide street lighting replacement project, and the computerized traffic signal control system.
