Board of Public Utilities Vice Chair Chris Ortega announced Thursday that the Board selected Tim Glasco to lead the Department of Public Utilities as utilities manager. The Board’s selection will go to Los Alamos County Council on April 29 for approval. If approved, Glasco will replace utilities manager John Arrowsmith, who plans to retire from the Department this July.
Approximately 25 applications from around the country were received for the Utilities Manager position. The board, the council liaison, and the county administrator screened applications.
This group narrowed the applications down to five finalists, all of whom work for Los Alamos County.
Finalists included James Alarid, Steve Cummins, Philo Shelton, Robert Westervelt and Glasco.
Three different panels then interviewed the candidates. They included the Board of Public Utilities including the Council Liaison and County Administrator; The Los Alamos County senior staff, and a panel of three Los Alamos citizens.
