Gabriel Engeland, Los Altos City Manager MEET THE NEW CITY MANAGER
Like most California cities, Los Altos has a Council/Manager form of government. The City Council appoints the City Manager, who is the chief administrative officer of the City and is accountable to the City Council for the performance of the City organization. The City Manager appoints each department head and is responsible for ensuring the City's services are performed well and in accordance with City Council's policies.
Gabe Engeland joined the City of Los Altos as City Manager in June of this year. We have invited Gabe to meet the Los Altos business community during a virtual 'Meet & Greet.' If you would like to submit a question prior to the 'Meet & Greet,' please email email@example.com.
