ALPINE - The City of Alpine is filling its vacant positions.
In an emergency meeting on Thursday night, Vergil Clark was put in the position of Interim Utility Director.
Clark operates Clark Utility Service in Alpine.
He was director of utilities in alpine back in the 1990, Clark is fully licensed and will work until a new director is found.
According to the City Council, Cindy Hollander, the previous director moved her retirement from November to today.
Hollander notified the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality that Alpine would be without a utility director on Friday which prompted the emergency meeting.
Mike Davidson, City Council member of Ward 2, hopes that Clark will pass on his experience to help others in alpine acquire the right license to manage utilities.
"He can come in and use his licenses to comply with TCEQ regulations, have him oversee the operations here and get the necessary personnel trained. So ideally he'll get the people trained up. Get them licensed to a certain status that is required and possibly help us look for and orient a new utility director," Davidson said.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality requires that utility directors have a Class "B" license or higher.
