Oxnard, California – City Manager Greg Nyhoff has announced the appointment of Rosemarie Gaglione as the city’s new Public Works director, effective Jan. 16, 2018.
Gaglione has wide experience in the field of public works, most recently having worked as the Public Works director and city engineer for the City of Goleta, where she was responsible for administration, capital projects, engineering and development review, storm water and solid waste initiatives, parks, streets, and fleet and facilities maintenance. She served as both the director and the city engineer concurrently. Gaglione also served as the Capital Improvement program manager and as a senior project manager in Goleta.
“Rosemarie is exceptionally qualified for this position,” said Nyoff. “She has excellent leadership skills and proven success in building partnerships between public, private and multiple agencies. She’s also skilled in conflict resolution and negotiating positive outcomes.”

“I love public service. It is both an awesome responsibility and a privilege to serve and impact the lives of so many people in so many positive ways,” Gaglione said. “Each day brings something new—from a funding challenge to design challenges and lots of wins, too. It’s never boring.”

The Dolphins will host closed practices at River Ridge practice fields in preparation for their Week 2 game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, September 17th at the StubHub Center in Carson, Ca. “We are humbled to welcome the Miami Dolphins to Oxnard and to assist the organization during this difficult and chaotic time” stated City Manager, Greg Nyhoff. “Our thoughts are with those who have been impacted in Florida and across the globe.”
As a reminder, there will be no public access to the training facility during the duration of their stay. We appreciate the public’s cooperation in an effort to provide the Miami Dolphin’s with a private training environment as they prepare for their upcoming game.

City of Oxnard Offers Free Mattress and Box-spring Recycling
Are you a resident of Oxnard? Do you have an old mattress or box spring to dispose? The City of Oxnard Environmental Resources Division now accepts mattresses and box springs for recycling. The program is for Oxnard residents and is free of charge. The Del Norte Regional Recycling and Transfer Station is located at 111 South Del Norte Boulevard, Monday through Saturday 5:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Residents can enter the location from Sturgis.
California’s Bye Bye Mattress is a state funded mattress recycling program, created by a 2013 law and managed by the Mattress Recycling Council. Thanks to this program, mattresses and box springs are diverted from landfills and used to make other useful products like carpet padding, insulation, filters, and mulch. It also helps deter illegal dumping by offering a zero cost solution to disposal.
As a participating facility, the Del Norte Regional Recycling and Transfer Station recycled more than 16,000 mattresses over the past 12 months. The recycling program has saved the City approximately $30,000 in hauling and landfill expenses. In addition to the savings the City receives $10 for every abandoned mattress or box spring it collects in Oxnard.
Help keep our streets and alleyways clean and save valuable landfill space by recycling your old mattress and box springs for FREE at the Del Norte Regional Recycling and Transfer Station.
