Placeholder Image
A measure to fill the position of Water and Sewer Department director has been tabled after hearing supportive comments from employees who want the department to remain under the guidance of city Public Works director Bill Brock.The item was under consideration Tuesday by Water and Sewer Committee members Aldermen Jimmy Bonner, chairman, Billy Wood and Mike Neal.“As we know, Carl Davis has been gone for five years,” said Bonner. “Bill has had this position. Bill, now that he is becoming interim city administrator, he has a lot on his plate.”If Brock is named interim city administrator, which will require one more passing vote before the full board Tuesday, that will be added to the lengthy list of his responsibilities – director over Public Works, Water and Sewer, Street Aid, Sanitation, Animal Control, Urban Forestry and the City Garage.
