It's the same city, but a different job for a key Bryan staff employee.
Engineer Linda Huff has been named as the city's new director of public works. She has been with the city for the last 15 years, including the last nine as the city engineer, and has also been the interim public works director during a nationwide search.
"Linda was a unanimous choice of the interview panel and brings not only her knowledge and expertise to this position, but also a passion for the City of Bryan," said City Manager David Watkins in a statement.
Among the top priorities for Huff will be the creation of a capital improvement plan, which would include "streets, sidewalks, curb and gutter as well as drainage issues," Watkins said.
Huff begins in the job immediately.
