Murfreesboro City Council voted last night to approve a modification of the City Code provisions pertaining to the Water Resources Department which will update the department's name and create a new role within the city government.
The Utilities Director will be over both the Water Resources Department and Electric Department which will be streamlined into the City's organizational structure.
The new role was developed during the July 19th, 2018 workshop session where Council received and discussed information about a reorganization.
According to City Manager Craig Tindall the person filling this role will enable The City to handle continued growth while assuring:
1) Excellent customer service to the citizens
2) Delivering this service in the most cost-efficient manner.
Part of the reorganization will enhance coordination with the Electric Department through the creation of a Utilities Director position, which will be assigned within the new organizational structure to the Assistant City Manager - Utility Enterprises.
