Posted August 06, 2018 09:19:51 A Nassau, New York, water utility is hiring an associate to help manage the transition of the county’s water supply to a new operator.
The Nassau City Council voted unanimously Monday to appoint David Hensley to the job.
Hensleys previous position at the Nassau Department of Public Works, which is part of the state Department of Environmental Conservation, was to manage the water supply for the City of Hempstead.
Hensley is expected to be named the interim manager of the department in a matter of weeks, said a statement from the city.
Hinesley will be working for the city through the end of the month and the transition will be complete when he is promoted to the permanent manager position, said the statement.
Honsley will oversee all aspects of the water and sewer infrastructure in the city, including construction and maintenance, stormwater and wastewater treatment, distribution and storage, billing, customer service and customer outreach, the statement said.
He will report directly to the Mayor.
The transition of water service is expected over the next two years.
