City loses engineer, recreation supervisor in the same week
Ceres city seal new

Kevin Waugh has resigned as Ceres city engineer and Kathleen Lemburg has left her job as recreation supervisor, both resignations for personal reasons.

City Manager Doug Dunford confirmed that Waugh, who is 70, decided to spend more time with family, including grandchildren.

Waugh had been splitting his time between homes in Turlock and Oceanside while working for the city. His departure comes at a time when the city is in the midst of two of his pet projects which he launched – the renovation of Smyrna Park and completing Ochoa Park.

The city will use an interim engineer from GDR Engineering in Ceres to handle work duties until Waugh’s replacement can be hired. Dunford said the city will be using a professional search firm to find a new engineer.

Lemburg resigned for a new position. She had been hired by the city to replace Matthew Lohr in August 2021.

Dunford said Recreation Manager Joey Chavez will be covering Lemburg’s duties but the city will be evaluating the needs of the recreation department before deciding on whether she will be replaced.
