[ARCHIVED] Donald Nunes Appointed Director of the Department of Public Works

                        

Effective on October 12, 2018, Town Manager Christopher Bromson appointed Donald Nunes as the new Director of Public Works for the Town of Enfield. The Town originally hired Mr. Nunes on October 7, 2013 as the ROADS Engineer, and it became quickly evident that we had found a skilled and innovative professional that was going to exceed all expectations.

Donald has over 25 years of DPW expertise, understanding and knowledge.  He has managed a wide range of capital improvement projects spanning from $60 thousand to $60 million in value while working closely with Buildings and Grounds and Highway staff to ensure in- house projects are completed correctly.  With all of his experience in successful hands-on all-inclusive departmental implementation, Donald Nunes is a win for Enfield as a Director.

“Time and again Donald’s ability to professionally interact with the public during stressful contracting and ROADs projects to come up with creative solutions is one of the reasons he was tapped to be the Interim Director,” Town Manager Bromson states.  “During the past couple of months, he has continued to use professionalism and critical thinking on a variety of issues, earning him distinction over all other candidates to lead the Public Works Department at the helm.”

A UMASS alumni with a Masters in Landscape Architecture, Donald is an experienced Field Engineer, Surveyor and Public Works Professional who offers significant abilities in the areas of construction management and inspection, project management, surveying, document preparation, in the field design modifications and solutions, public presentations, computer aided design and drafting, personnel management and municipal budgeting.

Donald is proud of his excellent reputation of professionalism.  “I work well under pressure and have performed nearly every DPW job, so I know what it is like on those cold, wet days to be outside or up for 36 hours plowing. I can empathize with everyone on the staff from the laborer to Administration.  I believe that all employees should be treated fairly, and the public respectfully.  I hold myself to high ethical standards and I wholeheartedly subscribe to the following ideal, “When placed in a position of command, lead!”

We congratulate Donald on his newly appointed position, and encourage our residents to join us in our confidence that the right man has been chosen for the job!
