City looks to fill new position
MONROE - After almost three years without a public works director, Monroe's Salary and Personnel Committee began recreating the position, while filling permanent and temporary positions for its water and wastewater utilities Monday, Sept. 16. After firing the director of utilities, Alan Eckstein, last week, the committee opted to begin the hiring process for a director of public works, who would coordinate the work of all public works departments, including streets and sanitation, engineering, and parks, as well as the water and wastewater utilities. City Administrator Phil Rath said having a director of public works - "someone with overall knowledge of how things work together" - would be "better for the city in the long-term."
