In a unanimous decision Monday night, the Clovis City Council appointed Luke Serpa as the Clovis City Manager effective July 1, 2017.

“This was an incredibly important decision for the Council,” said Clovis Mayor Bob Whalen. “Fortunately, it was also an easy one. In many respects, Luke’s life experiences and Clovis’ needs are a perfect match. His customer friendly approach to the people we all serve, his engineering background and unsurpassed understanding of water and its methods of conveyance will serve the citizens well as we look to our future.”

For the past 12 years, Serpa has served the City of Clovis as the Assistant Public Utilities Director, the Public Utilities Director, and for the last six months he has served as the Interim City Manager, following the retirement of City Manager Rob Woolley.

Prior to his work with the City of Clovis, Serpa worked in the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and the Regional Water Quality Control Board. Serpa graduated from Fresno State in 1985 and has lived in Clovis with his wife Kathy since 1986. The couple have two sons in college.

In a statement Monday night, Serpa shared that he was honored to serve as City Manager, “Clovis is a great organization. I am proud to be a part of it.”
