City Engineer Jeb Blackwell recently announced that Dave Weekly has been named the interim Engineering Services Division Manager. To cover Dave’s current responsibilities, Tom Ferguson will serve as interim Division Manager for Land Development.
Dave, a 1987 UNCC graduate in Civil Engineering, has been with the City for 22 years after spending seven years in the engineering private sector. He came to the City in 1994 as a review engineer in Land Development, then moved to Engineering Services as a design engineer and project manager. A six-year stint as a contract officer followed, with Dave then serving 13 years as Land Development Division Manager.
Dave will spend the majority of his time with Engineering Services but will also continue implementing permitting services recommendations made in Gartner Consulting’s two-year study of development processes. To that end, the City Manager’s Office has appointed Dave and Nan Peterson to the new City Executive Development Services Team, which is charged with creating a unified services model for development.
Tom graduated from Virginia Tech in 1983 with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. He has been with the City 28 years, joining what was then called the Public Service Division (now Land Development) in 1988. During that span he has served as Civil Engineer I, Civil Engineer II and Engineering Program Manager, all within Land Development.
