Watertown's new water czar comes from a post in Auburn NY, according to a well placed source with first hand knowledge. It's expected Vicky Murphy will join the city soon after resigning a post with Development Authority of the North Country where she had been recruited to run a facility in the Maple City. She is said to have resigned that post today.
Best wishes to her, as she will replace Michael Sligar who retires Thursday. The water superintendent oversees the water treatment and distribution, the wastewater plant and the hydro electric plant.
The Internet says Ms. Murphy was Director of Municipal Utilities in Auburn.
