The City of Merriam promoted Public Works Superintendent Jim MacDonald to public works director at the Sept. 23 City Council meeting. He has served as the interim director since April.
MacDonald started his career in Merriam in 1992 when the City hired him as a fleet mechanic. He worked his way up and was promoted to superintendent in 2010.
“Merriam is a great community that I have served for 27 years,” MacDonald said. “I look forward to leading this talented group and continue providing our residents with the same high-quality service they’ve grown accustomed to knowing.”
MacDonald will be in charge of maintaining, repairing, and improving the City’s roads, streetlights, trails, and parks.
