New Public Works Director announced

Published on May 24, 2022


Following a broad search and several candidate interviews, the Weld County Board of Commissioners has named Curtis Hall as the new Director of Weld County’s Public Works Department. Hall will replace current director Jay McDonald as the department head following McDonald’s retirement later this year.

Hall, who is currently serving as the Deputy Director of Operations for the department, has been with Weld County since 1996, when he started as a seasonal employee working in the Road and Bridge Division within Public Works.

“Curtis has grown with the department and has experience in multiple divisions as a trainer, supervisor and manager,” said Commissioner Chair Scott James. “The board is confident Curtis will continue to lead the department in a professional manner that keeps up with the growing infrastructure needs of the county while also reflecting the fiscal responsibility desired by the board.”

Hall, who has numerous professional development courses and certifications, will lead the county’s third largest department.

“I am grateful the board of commissioners has entrusted me with this position,” said Hall. “I know my experience and background will provide me with a good foundation to continue to lead this team of amazing employees who plan, design, build, and maintain the county’s infrastructure.”
