She manages the city’s greatest asset

A city is an organization with many parts, none more than its Human Resources Department. Keizer’s two-person HR Department, led by Machell DePina,  is busy every day not only keeping records up to date for more than 100 employees but also their health insurance and pension needs.

DePina took Keizer’s Human Resource director position after years serving similar positions with the state of Oregon in both the Employment and Child Services departments.

Keeping the books

Providing city services with the available funds is a challenge for Tim Wood.

Wood, Keizer’s finance director, notes that Keizer had a low tax rate when it incorporated, and he said that Ballot Measure 5, which limited property tax rates in 1990, was little help.

Access to government is her goal

“One of my main goals in my job is to make sure that the citizens have access to their local government.”

That is what Tracy Davis said about her position of city recorder of Keizer. She has held the position since October 1992 and has won the Quill Award from the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC).
