Moab City has hired Chuck Williams as the new city engineer, replacing Phillip Bowman. Williams has worked as a consultant engineer and as a local government engineer, according to an Aug. 15 press release from the city, and has expertise in transportation, water resources, environmental planning and engineering.

Bowman left at the beginning of March to relocate back to Boise, Idaho for personal reasons, said Moab City Manager David Everitt.

As city engineer, Williams and the engineering department will advise other departments and the Moab City Council about internal city projects and external development plans.

“We will review the plans for compliance with engineering standards and good engineering practices,” Williams said.

One of his first jobs will be reviewing the city’s new master plan for stormwater, water storage and distribution and the sanitary sewer system. Williams said he would work with city staff to prioritize the most important projects in the master plan and help those come to fruition, he said.

“Some of those are construction plans [and] will ultimately end up in construction … replacing sewer line, replacing water line, things like that. I’ll help move those along.”

Williams comes to Moab from Tucson, Arizona.
