SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury Mayor Jake Day on Tuesday announced that effective Dec. 5, City Administrator Tom Stevenson will take on a new role as the chief of operations for the city’s public works department.  This newly created position was made possible by the upcoming retirement of Deputy Operations Manager Howard Landon, who served the city for 50 years.

The creation of the chief of operations position came about as a result of city introspection. The mayor, city administrator, and public works director identified an area of the city government which could be made more effective through the optimization of resource allocation: the day-to-day operations of the public works department. The chief of operations will be tasked with the oversight of city public works crews on a day-to-day basis, as well as the general upkeep and appearance of city streets, streetlights, sidewalks, and the areas of the Wicomico River that are inside City limits.  In addition, the chief of operations will oversee the daily operation of sanitation services and any other functions based out of the city service center.

Stevenson’s 28-year career with the city of Salisbury began in public works. He later went on to become the first director of the city’s neighborhood services and code compliance division, before being called upon to assume the role of acting city administrator, and, ultimately, city administrator under Mayor James Ireton Jr.  

Serving as acting city administrator while a nationwide search is conducted will be Assistant City Administrator Julia Glanz. According to Day, Glanz has recently been instrumental to keeping the fire service agreement process moving forward, while also helping to improve relations with Wicomico County.   

"We have been preparing for this change for some time.  This is something that Tom has sought and that Mike Moulds, Julia Glanz and I have supported, when the right time came," Day said.  Tom has been an incredible asset to our city as the city administrator, and he will continue to be as the person directly responsible for making sure the physical infrastructure of our city shines.  Julia and Tom have worked almost as co-city administrators for the last 12 months and she will have no trouble delivering on all of my – and your – expectations of the chief operating officer of the city. 

"The most important place for Tom’s talents right now is in ensuring that our streets, streetlights, sidewalks, sanitation services and river are in their absolute best condition.  Tom’s talents will provide polish our city deserves and needs in order to shine as brightly as we know it can."
