Job Description:/h3:
Thank you for taking the time to view our position recruitment. Now its up to me to draw you into what I believe is a great opportunity for that up and coming candidate or the seasoned professional that has plenty of fuel left in the tank. So, here I go...
A recent re:organization has flattened the organization, provided an ongoing 300,000 + savings in personnel costs, created new departments and expanded the responsibilities of department heads to include the Public Works Director. The Citys Water Production Department is now a direct report to the Public Works Director.
You will be replacing a seasoned Public Works Director after a 40 + year career in the field and nearly 10 years with the City of Decatur. While I expect your perspective on the department and encourage new ideas to save taxpayer dollars and improve efficiencies he is handing the keys of a solid department over to the new Public Works Director.
As you will read in greater detail in this recruitment brochure this community is solidly in its Infrastructure chapter of Decaturs history. Not necessarily glamorous, but it is exciting to be a part of this. Revenue streams are in place to complete the millions of dollars worth of projects (streets, water, fiber and sewer) that are underway to catchup with postponed improvements and clearly positioning ourselves for business expansion/growth and new opportunities. There truly is a buzz in this community and its contagious
I need my next Public Works Director to be high energy, well:spoken and able to articulate public works language in a way it is understood by my elected, staff and most importantly the community. To mention a couple of other areas with high importance to me is a person that pursues green opportunities and is tech savvy. In return I will equip you (your department) with the training/tools necessary to complete your job and most importantly you will have my support.
Im hoping this opportunity in Decatur gets you as excited as I am. You will be working with a team that has a can do attitude. Thank you for your interest...
Please take a look at our 2016 team accomplishments.
