This new position is being created to manage the $28 million in revenue generated by the Water and Sewer Enterprise Funds. The position of Director of Operations in the Water Department has been vacant and will be eliminated and the payroll funds for that position will be utilized for this new position. The committee requested a copy of the job description by this week's Board of Aldermen's meeting and also asked that the Water Superintendent be available to address the committee's concerns.
