FORT MADISON – The City of Fort Madison has hired a new person to lead the city’s public works and parks departments.
Ten-year Keokuk public works veteran Mark Bousselot was hired by the city this week and will start his position on Jan. 20.
City Manager David Varley made the announcement on Friday. Bousselot replaces Larry Driscoll who left for a position in Cedar Rapids about three months ago.
“After a long search, it was nice to find the qualified candidate right here in our own backyard,” Varley said.
Bousselot comes to the City of Fort Madison with 14 years of professional experience. He has worked with a private engineering firm, the Departments of Transportation for Missouri and Illinois, and most recently, he has served as the Public Works Director for the City of Keokuk for the past 10 years. Mr. Bousselot has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Construction Management from Western Illinois University, with a minor in Management.
The Public Works Director in Fort Madison oversees Streets and Parks, along with utilities such as the Water Treatment Plant, Storm Water, and the Wastewater Treatment Plant.
“It is a big job, but we believe we have found the right person who can continue on with the progress we have made in recent years,” Varley said.
“We are excited about this and look forward to Mark joining our team at the City” Varley said.
