Public Works Director

Yugal Lall was born in Guyana, South America. He attended the University of Guyana, where he earned his bachelor’s in civil engineering and worked on various capital projects for the government of Guyana. Lall came to the United States in 1983 for advanced study and obtained a master’s in public administration at Cal State Northridge.

Yugal Lall, an 18-year resident of Moorpark, CA. was recently hired to serve as the city’s new city engineer and public works director.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to serve the community I have lived in for so long,” said Lall, who considers Moorpark a hidden jewel.

Lall was born in Guyana, South America. He attended the University of Guyana, where he earned his bachelor’s in civil engineering and worked on various capital projects for the government of Guyana.

Lall has excellent experience in municipal engineering and public works matters, said Steven Kueny, Moorpark city manager.

“He is a good fit for Moorpark because he understands the challenges of working with a small city staff,” he said. Since Lall worked with Caltrans in Malibu, he knows how to deal with the state agency and the knowledge will be useful in Moorpark, which has several state routes, Kueny said.

Lall came to the United States in 1983 for advanced study and obtained a master’s in public administration at Cal State Northridge.

Before he began working for Moorpark, the state-registered civil engineer was public works director and city engineer for Malibu.

He also served as senior civil engineer for Simi Valley for 13 years, working on the 118/Madera interchange, the north Simi regional detention basin and the Simi Mall project, among many other projects.

Lall was employed by the Ventura County Flood Control District as a project engineer from 1986 to 1989.

He has been married to his wife, Indra, for 21 years. The Lall’s two daughters, Nalini and Kamini, were educated at Moorpark public schools. Kamini now attends Moorpark College and Nalin attends UCLA. Lall and his wife coached girls soccer for eight years when their daughters were young.

At a recent city council meeting, Lall thanked officials for bringing him home. “To live and work in the same city is a dream come true,” he said.
