Curtis Self becomes public works director

The City of Hartselle will soon have a new public works director. Curtis Self join the department Aug. 5. 

The Hartselle Personnel Board interviewed five applicants last month for the position that has been vacant since summer 2018 after the termination of Tommy Halbrooks. Since that time, the department has been under the direction of Herschel Clemons and David VanKoughnett. 

Self has worked for Marion County for the past 24 years and has been in a supervisory role for 20 of those years. 

Mayor Randy Garrison said Self’s extended hands-on experience is what set him apart from the other applicants. 

Self is a certified bridge inspector who also has experience in sanitation and street and road maintenance. 

“We’re very excited to have him on board,” Garrison said. “When we called and offered him the job, one thing he said was that he would like to pray about it first, so I was really impressed by that.”
