Roseville, CA,- The Roseville City Council today appointed Dominick Casey to be Acting City Manager, following the recent announcement of City Manager Rob Jensen’s retirement.
The appointment is effective April 14, so that Jensen, in the time leading up to his June 29 retirement, can focus on wrapping up high profile projects including critical capital-improvement and development-related projects.
“With the ample notice Rob has given us, we wanted to make the best use of his expertise,” said Mayor Susan Rohan. “We’re also very pleased Dom has accepted this tremendous responsibility.”
“This allows a smooth transition at the executive level, where Rob can provide guidance and support to Dom as he takes on this role. It also gives us several months to take advantage of Rob’s experience in these specialized areas,” said Rohan.
The City Council will conduct a nationwide search for Roseville’s next city manager, who is expected to be hired by the end of summer.
In 2016, Casey was appointed as assistant city manager, overseeing police, fire, public works, parks, recreation, and libraries, and central services. He moved to Roseville in 2011 when he was hired as Roseville’s director of parks, recreation and libraries, after 10 years in various management positions at the City of Henderson, Nevada. Casey is a graduate of Northern Arizona University and received a master’s degree in management from Chadron State College. Casey lives in Roseville with his wife and four children.
