Terence T. Kyaw has been named the new Public Works Services Director of Redwood City, the city announced Monday.
The 26-year veteran of the department has been the acting Public Works director since June.
“With his education and experience, TK is well-grounded in the breadth of Redwood City’s Public Works operations, and has developed strong working relationships with Public Works staff and the community,” City Manager Melissa Stevenson Diaz said in a statement. “TK is solutions oriented, values collaboration and is committed to continuous improvement and staff development. His appointment will serve the City well now and into the future as we move forward with several major capital investments to support the community’s infrastructure needs.”
The Public Works Services Department maintains the City’s water, sewer, storm drain, trees and sidewalks, and streets infrastructure, and supports the city’s environmental initiatives and programs. Kyaw began his career in public works, working his way up from an equipment services worker to fleet manager before becoming the assistant director in 2012, according to the city.
“I look forward to building upon an already strong relationship with the local community to support public works operations, furthering staff training and professional development and providing the best value and quality of services to our customers,” Kyaw said in the city’s statement.
