Pending council approval, the Tim Glasco, the Deputy Utility Manager for Gas, Water and Sewer Services for the Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities will become the next DPU manager for the county.
BPU Vice-Chair Chris Ortega, who made the announcement about the board’s choice Thursday, remarked on the quality of all five candidates that were interviewed.
“They all brought different skill sets to the table and had very, very good experience in certain areas,” Ortega said, then noted some of things that weighed in Glasco’s favor.
“He has broad experience. He’s been in the utilities business most of his career. I hired him in 1995 to help us acquire the water production system,” Ortega said.
“Tim has got an extremely good background in dealing with federal agencies, as well, like NNSA, EPA. And I think we need that in the future. He’s also got a good perspective on alternative energy, which we’ll be looking at in the future.
“So I think all those things combined made him the top candidate. I think Tim will do really, really well. He’s really versatile, and he’s got a lot of background. He’s excellent at delving into matters and solving problems. So I think it will all work out.”
