The City of Aberdeen has fired their Public Works Director. A press release Friday afternoon said that Malcolm Bowie’s termination was immediate.

Mayor Bill Simpson said the department is in good hands. The division managers will be in charge of their respective divisions.
Rick Sangder is the Deputy Public Works Director as well as the head of the street division. As Deputy Director, Rick will assume oversight of the projects that Malcolm was directing.

Bowie was hired in December of 2012 after a 90-day vetting process, Simpson said he’ll leave the job of replacing Bowie to the next mayor.

Simpson added in the press release “I ask you to be patient with staff as they work to get up to speed with these new assignments.”
