City Manager's Office

City Manager G. Harold Duffey
Meet G. Harold Duffey, Our City Manager

G. Harold Duffey has over 25 years of public service experience. He was appointed the City Manager for the City of Grand Terrace in June 2015. As City Manager, Harold is responsible for the daily operations of this municipal organization. He manages a staff of approximately 35 employees and a budget of nearly $9,000,000. Prior to his appointment as City Manager, Harold served as:

  • City Manager for the City of Compton (2012-2014)
  • City Administrator for the City of Oroville (8/2010 - 7/2012)
  • Chief Deputy Director for Yolo County's Planning and Public Works Department (2006-2010)
  • Integrated Waste General Manager for the City of Sacramento (2000 - 2006)
  • Senior Administrative Analyst for the City of Riverside's Public Works Department (1992-2000)

During his decades of service in municipal government, Harold established a reputation for creativity & innovation among public administrators. Harold has earned a Masters of Public Administration degree from California State University, San Bernardino (Accredited by the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration) and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Sociology from the University of Redlands (1987).

Harold has spent a significant portion of his career working within Enterprise Fund Departments or fee for service agencies. Experience in these organizations has led him to treat government like a business and introduce common business practices, such as performance measurements, customer service guidelines, benchmarking and strategic planning into the management operations, to ensure operations run efficiently, economically, and effectively. If Harold's management style could be condensed into one very simple phrase, it would read, “Let's plan the work and work the plan”.

As a result of planning the work and working the plan, Harold has a track record for stabilizing organizations and empowering employees & policy makers to strategically plan their way out of challenging economic times, while preserving and/or enhancing the quality of life for all citizens.
