A Message from the City Manager...
March is one of my favorite months because spring is coming, the weather is getting warmer and it's a great time to start on a new journey. Just like the freshly blooming flowers and wildlife, the beginning of spring is the perfect time to start fresh, especially after a nice spring cleaning.

Here at the City, we want to help local businesses who are seeking employees, find residents who are seeking employment. We know how much of an impact one's job has on their daily lives. I remember one of my first jobs and how working as a municipal government intern for the City of Downey, developed my future career path and love of public service. If you are looking for your next job (or your first), come to the City of Murrieta Job Fair! For more information, make sure to read the Economic Development newsletter linked here.
