Sterling Heights City Council unanimously confirmed Michael Moore as the city’s new Public Works Director at its Nov. 17 meeting.
Moore was serving as Interim Director since the retirement of Public Works Director Sal Conigliaro in July. He was initially hired to the city in April 2004 to the Fleet Maintenance Division and worked his way through the ranks to become a Fleet Maintenance Supervisor in 2011, an Operations Manager in 2012 and then to Interim Director in 2015. Moore has a Bachelor’s Degree in Automotive & Heavy Equipment Management from Ferris State University and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Central Michigan University.
“I am looking forward to serving the City of Sterling Heights as Public Works Director,” Moore said. “Our department’s influence in the city is great, and we will continue to uphold the high standards our citizens have come to expect. I work with an incredible group of highly skilled individuals, and I will continue to provide a safe and positive work environment for our staff.”
As Public Works Director, Moore will oversee the office of Engineering as well as five divisions in the Public Works Department: Fleet Maintenance, Water Distribution, Sewer Collection, Street Services and Parks and Grounds Maintenance. He will also oversee the refuse collection contract and the noxious weed program. Moore, who is a graduate of Stevenson High School, has lived in Sterling Heights nearly his entire life. He currently lives in the city with his wife and daughter.
“I am pleased to have Mike join our city’s outstanding leadership team,” said City Manager Mark Vanderpool. “We went through a comprehensive search for the next Public Works Director, which validated for us, based on organizational knowledge, acedemic credentials and strong leadership skills, that Mike was the best candidate for our current needs. The Public Works Department is well positioned for the future with Mike at the helm.”
