HAMMOND | Additional appointments were named this week for the city’s consolidated public works department.
Pat Moore Sr. will serve as parks manager, overseeing operations of the Hammond Civic Center, Jean Shepherd Community Center, special events and parks and recreation programs.
The new department combines four city departments — streets, recycling, sanitation and parks — for an anticipated savings of $1 million per year.
The department will break down maintenance responsibilities by the city’s six council districts.
The six district supervisors, responsible for organizing and planning work, are Donna Muta, 1st District; Steve Fowler, 2nd District; Tim Woods, 3rd District; Jason Donovan, 4th District; Jaime Prieto, 5th District; Jack Smith, 6th District.
