Town of Gilbert, Arizona
Public Works Director
The growing and dynamic community of Gilbert, Arizona seeks a motivational, visionary public works professional with a strong financial background to serve as its new Public Works Director. Located in the Phoenix metropolitan area, Gilbert’s current population of 220,000 has grown from 5,717 in 1980, and is expected to reach an estimated population of over 330,000 at build-out.
The Public Works Director reports to the Deputy Town Manager and is responsible for an annual operating budget of $72.4 million and 260 FTE’s in the Water, Wastewater, Environmental Services, and Streets Divisions. Priorities for the new Director will include: overseeing management of a one billion dollar infrastructure asset replacement/maintenance program and creating a long-term infrastructure plan for maintenance of existing infrastructure and development of future assets; completing an operational review of procedures in all divisions to ensure best practices are being identified and implemented; and, capitalizing on opportunities to strengthen relationships with the public and with community partners through greater input from citizens and advocacy groups. The new Public Works Director will move the organization toward Gilbert’s vision of “…best in class in all lines of service,” and build its recognition as a best in class public works organization.
Ideal candidates for this critically important position will be strongly committed individuals with the ability to develop a shared vision of excellence within a public works organization. They will possess a solid understanding of budgetary planning, cost recovery and asset management programs within a Public Works environment. Experience managing in municipalities that have transitioned from a period of rapid growth to sustainability and who have focused on infrastructure replacement and maintenance, as well as development, is highly desirable. A Master’s Degree and 7 years of relevant experience or an equivalent combination of education/experience and a background in supporting and collaborating with engineering functions will be expected. Management of an engineering division and Professional Engineer (PE) certification is also desirable.
