The city of Santa Fe on Tuesday announced the appointment of a new city clerk and the head of an office that will include a variety of key departments as part of Mayor Alan Webber’s plan to revamp the operations of local government.

Kristine Bustos-Mihelcic will be the new city clerk and director of the Office of Public Engagement. The city also named Kyra Ochoa the acting director of the Community Health and Safety Department, a new umbrella agency that will oversee police, fire, community services, recreation and emergency management.

Both departments were created in September as part of Webber’s sweeping reorganization.
