July 20, 2002|by SCOTT BUTKI

David Shindle, Hagerstown's water pollution engineer, has been appointed manager of the city's sewer department.

As water pollution control manager, Shindle fills a vacancy left by the retirement of Rick Thomas, who served in that position for 17 years. Thomas' last day with the city was June 30, Shindle said.

Shindle, 40, starts in the new position on July 29.

He is scheduled to take the oath of office during Tuesday's Hagerstown City Council meeting.

He will manage a department of 41 employees with a budget of $12.9 million.

Shindle has been the water pollution engineer for the city's water department since 1989.

He said Friday he is looking forward to the challenges of a new position.

"Mr. Shindle's knowledge of the city of Hagerstown and the Water Department will be transferable to his new role in Water Pollution Control," City Administrator Bruce Zimmerman said in a news release.
