Water Chief Riley to Retire

The City of San Angelo announced:

Water Utilities Director Bill Riley is retiring from the City of San Angelo, effective Dec. 8.  Riley joined the City in December 2014.
The City spent huge amounts on various consultants during Riley's term as Water Chief.

Prior to joining the City, Riley served as president and general partner of Water Resources Management, LLC, a consulting firm that assisted water utilities with developing strategies for a broad spectrum of operational, management, financial and resource challenges. From 1991-2000, he served as the water/wastewater utilities manager in College Station, where he began his career in 1983. From 2000-02, Riley managed the water and wastewater consulting practice of Reed, Stowe & Yanke, providing financial, management and operations guidance to public sector clients.
Executive Director of Public Works Ricky Dickson waived the licensed engineer requirement to hire Riley.  I can't recall the last time Dickson made a public presentation to the Water Board or City Council.  Might he do so on Riley's replacement?
