As one of the state’s most historic cities, Victoria is the place where Texas history was written, and the legendary Texas cattle industry began. The original colony, founded in 1824 by impresario Don Martin de Leon, was named for the first president of Mexico, Don Guadalupe Victoria. The Town was established at a site known earlier as Cypress Grove due to the abundant cypress trees growing along the banks of the Guadalupe River. Victoria is the county seat of Victoria County and the third charter city created in 1836 under the Republic of Texas.  Victoria is located in the heart of the Golden Crescent of South Texas with a diverse population of over 67,000 and encompassing an area of approximately 37 square miles. Victoria is a cultural, historic, medical, educational, and economic hub for the area.

The next Assistant Director of Public Works will be a strategic, ethical, fiscally responsible, and results driven municipal manager with proven expertise in water and wastewater utilities and the knowledge, skills, and ability to successfully lead daily operations of the Public Works Department. Experience with capital projects programming, project management development and implementation, and knowledge of emergency operations is highly desired.

This position requires a bachelor’s degree in business, management, engineering, or a related field from an accredited college or university. Candidates should also have at least five years of progressively responsible experience — two of managerial experience — in public works functions, including water and wastewater collection and treatment, and TCEQ regulations.

Candidates must also possess a Class B Surface Water license and either Class B or Class III Wastewater license. An equivalent combination of education, training, and experience may also be considered; specifically, possession of Class A Surface Water and Class A Wastewater licenses will substitute for meeting the bachelor’s degree requirement.

The City of Victoria is offering a salary of $100,000 to $120,000 for this position dependent on experience, training, and qualifications.
