City promotes Worley to wastewater superintendent
City administrator Kevin Flanagan announced Shawn Worley as the new Wastewater Superintendent Monday night at Fairfield City Hall.
The position has been vacant since former superintendent Ellen Myers stepped down from the post during the summer. Worley has been working as a wastewater operator at the Fairfield plant.
“We looked far and wide, of course, and feel we’ve found the best candidate for the position,” said Flanagan.
Worley’s annual salary will be $55,000, and will increase to $58,000 after six months in his new position.
Flanagan said Worley’s promotion comes at an important time as the city makes plans for a complete overhaul of the sanitary sewer system during the next 20 years.
“We look forward to Shawn leading the way on the improvements,” he said.
