City seeks to fill position of Public Works Director
The Hartselle Personnel Board along with city administration and council members held interviews today for the position of Public Works Director. According to Mayor Randy Garrison, five candidates from outside of the city applied.
The position has been vacant since Garrison terminated the employment of Tommy Halbrooks last year. Since that time, the department, which handles street repair, garbage pickup, the city landfill and more, has been under the oversight of Herschel Clemons and David VanKoughnett.
Human Resources Administrator for the City of Hartselle, Melee Laney, said the personnel board and administration should reach a decision the week of July 8.
At pay grade 27 of City of Hartselle’s pay plan, the salary range for the Public Works Director position is $60,018.30-$91,324.95 annually.
