Matthew J. Machado, P.E., L.S.

Director of Public Works

  • Hometown: Ripon, CA
  • Current resident of City of Modesto
  • BS in Civil Engineering, California State University Fresno
  • MBA, California State University Stanislaus
  • Licensed Civil Engineer and Land Surveyor

In early 2007 I joined the Stanislaus County Public Works team as the Director. In addition to developing what our core mission is, we have also been focused on fiscal responsibility and good communication. Some of our current efforts include roadway maintenance, bridge maintenance and replacement, congestion relief, countywide GIS (Geographical Information Systems), transit, development services and survey. Additionally, I am the Authority Manager for the North County Corridor JPA (Joint Powers Authority), and the County Surveyor.

Prior work experience includes 13 years with the City of Ripon. Ripon is where my engineering career began. After being hired full time in 1994 and obtaining required work experience, I became a registered civil engineer. In 2000 I was promoted to the City Engineer position. Working for the City of Ripon was an enjoyable experience. Some noteworthy and unique projects completed include: Jack Tone Interchange, New Roadway Street Standards, Multiple Roundabouts, Wastewater Treatment Facility, Municipal Water Wells, Multiple Elevated Water Storage Facilities, Bicycle/Pedestrian Bridge River Crossing, Animal Shelter, and a Non-Potable Water System.
