City Names John Buturla as Interim DCAO for Operations



The Administration of Mayor Dwight C. Jones today announced that Deputy Chief John J. Buturla will serve as the Interim Deputy Chief Administrative Officer (DCAO) for Operations, effective October, 14, 2015. Buturla will be filling the position being vacated by Christopher Beschler following his appointment to a state position which was announced last month.

The DCAO for Operations has the management and oversight responsibility for the Department of Public Works, Department of Public Utilities and Animal Care and Control. Buturla, who at one time served as a Chief Administrative Officer for the City of New Haven, Connecticut, is seen as having the management experience and knowledge necessary to lead the operations portfolio.

Mayor Dwight C. Jones recently tapped Buturla as the lead coordinator for the execution of the City’s logistics responsibility in hosting the UCI Road World Championships (Worlds). The success of the Worlds was in part attributed to his leadership.

“I am confident that John will be a welcomed addition to our executive team,” said CAO Selena Cuffee-Glenn.
