Wilde & Kerr Quit Water Department

The Standard Times reported:

The two top administrators in San Angelo's municipal water department both announced their retirements today, effective immediately.

Will Wilde, water utilities director since 2004, and Tom Kerr, assistant director since 1994, are leaving. No reason was given in the announcement, which came out through a public information division news release.

This is big news.  It's highly unusual for someone in such a critical role to retire, effective immediately.  It's even more unusual for their #2 to do likewise at the same time.  I'd love to hear from the fly on the wall during these discussions.  

Update 11-19-23:  Wilde Engineering received 2nd Place in the Development Corporation's business plan competition.  The firm includes Will and his son Blake, who was fired from the city Engineering Department.  The prize for 2nd place is $20,000.
