Outgoing Public Works and Capital Improvement Project Director Troy White was recognized as he retires from the town during the Dec. 1 Queen Creek Town Council meeting.
White started with the town in 2005 working in the Parks and Recreation Department. During that time, he was instrumental in closing the landfill and the construction of the Horseshoe Park and Equestrian Centre.
In 2011, White accepted a position in Public Works and was appointed as the department director in 2016. The Public Works Department includes Streets Maintenance and Pavement Preservation, Fleet Services, Facility Services, Municipal Grounds Services, and Environmental Programs.
“Troy worked tirelessly to lead a diverse, multiple-mission department,” said Queen Creek Manager John Kross in a press release. “Troy oversaw major improvements to our wash trail system, substantial enhancements to drainage throughout the community and impressive partnerships. Troy offered innovative solutions and can-do attitude.”
In 2021, the town launched a Capital Improvement Project Department, which was previously a division within Public Works.
“Troy has been instrumental in the progress of our 10-year infrastructure improvement plan,” stated Queen Creek Mayor Gail Barney. “Thanks to his commitment, better roads are ahead in Queen Creek.”
Milestones of the roadway improvements under White include:
Improvements to Queen Creek’s roadways will continue under the leadership of CIP Director Dave Lipinski. Mohamed Youssef is serving as the Interim Public Works director.
