Public Works manager made permanent



Eric Deike, Hagerstown's acting Public Works manager since September, was given the job permanently Tuesday.

Deike, 35, was hired as assistant Public Works manager in September 1999. A year later, he became acting department manager when Douglas Stull was moved from the Public Works Department to head the new City Recreation Department.

The City Council affirmed Deike's appointment Tuesday and Deike was sworn in by Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II.

"He brings a good vision for the position," said City Administrator Bruce Zimmerman.

"He did a nice job in supervising the lobby renovation and a good job on snow removal operations the last two winters," he said.

"He brings a lot of enthusiasm to the position," said Zimmerman, who added that Deike has been responsive to citizen concerns.

As Public Works manager, Deike oversees the city's parks, roads, traffic signs and signals, and maintenance of the city vehicles.

About 50 people work for the Public Works Department, Deike said.

Deike said his annual salary will be $54,475 beginning Feb. 4.
