Bloomington reorganizes Public Works and names director
The City of Bloomington is reorganizing its public works area and has named a director.
City Manager Tim Gleason said Mose Rickey will oversee the restructuring into three distinct departments: public works; water and operations; and engineering services. Rickey had been the assistant director of parks and recreation.
Rickey’s first day on the job was Monday.
The city said key highlights of the restructure include:
- Public Works: This department will continue to oversee the maintenance and improvement of the city’s streets, sidewalks, and sanitation services, ensuring infrastructure remains safe and reliable.
- Water: The newly-established department will concentrate on managing and maintaining the city's water supply and distribution systems, prioritizing water quality and sustainability.
- Operations & Engineering Services: This department will be responsible for overseeing planning, design, and engineering services, as well as coordinating infrastructure projects to support growth and development.
“Mose’s leadership will be instrumental in executing these changes and guaranteeing our city’s infrastructure is of the highest quality,” said Gleason.
“I am honored to lead the Public Works Department and its dedicated teams as it enters this new phase, Rickey said in a statement. "Together we’ll work to bring improved service delivery, increased responsiveness, and a stronger focus on meeting the current and future needs of our growing city.”
