City Public Works Director is stepping down

City of Sequim Public Works Director Paul Haines has announced he will leave the city at the end of November.

In a letter to Sequim City Manager Steve Burkett, Haines said, “There are other personal challenges, adventures and professional opportunities I need to develop and now is the time for me to start that next chapter.”

He also added, “I cannot say enough about our hard working Public Works staff and their personal efforts to maintain a well-kept, attractive, award-achieving and safe place for residents and visitors. Their efforts to treat our customers as if they were neighbors show up in our ‘small-town’ friendly service. I have really appreciated this opportunity.”

“Paul has accomplished everything that I was expecting when I hired him as our Public Works Director four years ago. I appreciate everything he has done to improve the public works organization and the city,” said Burkett.

Haines began working for the City of Sequim in April 2010. He will continue to work for the city until the end of November.
