Our promise: Transparency, accountability and common sense

Welcome to our website!


We are your Costa Mesa City employees.

We are proud to be a part of the Costa Mesa family. We promote a community-first, common-sense approach to tackling the city’s challenges. And we proactively participate—at work and during our free time—in projects that help strengthen our great community.

As we enter into contract negotiations this year, we also reaffirm our commitment to transparency and accountability in all we do. Costamesaworks.com is a space for us to share updates from the bargaining table, insights into how things work at City Hall, and news involving the City’s great employees.

Thank you for reading,

Helen Nenadal
