Newcastle City Manager Rob Wyman announced that the city has hired Jeffrey Brauns as its new Public Works director.

Brauns comes to Newcastle from the city of Sammamish, where he served as city engineer and the senior transportation program manager.

Prior to that, he worked for various private-sector engineering firms as well as the Washington State Department of Transportation.

Wyman said Brauns is very plugged in with other cities and regional organizations, and currently serves as the American Public Works Association’s Transportation Committee chairman.

“Most importantly,” Wyman said, “Jeff brings a great temperament and strong belief in customer service that I think the residents of Newcastle will find very positive and productive.”

Brauns replaces popular Public Works Director Mark Rigos, who left to take the same position in North Bend in June. Brauns’ first day is Jan. 2.
