IRWD Commends Retiring Irvine City Manager

Mary Aileen Matheis, Peer Swan, Sean Joyce, Paul Cook, Steven E. LaMar and Douglas Reinhart participate in the commendation. 

Irvine Ranch Water District has commended Irvine City Manager Sean Joyce for his 14 years of service to Irvine.

“He has set a pattern that will move the city forward,” IRWD Director Mary Aileen Matheis said of Joyce, who is retiring this month.

Joyce joined the City of Irvine in July 2004 with more than a decade of experience in city administration. Under his leadership as city manager, Irvine received numerous accolades reflecting the “Best Run City” practices he implemented. That included national recognition of the city's parks system.

IRWD General Manager Paul Cook presented a commendation to Joyce at the Jan. 22 meeting of the District’s Board of Directors.

“It’s been really good to have you at the helm,” IRWD Director Peer Swan told Joyce.
