GENEVA – Geneva will begin a search for a new director for its Public Works Department, as current director Dan Dinges will be leaving to accept a position in Bartlett, according to a news release issued by the city of Geneva.

Dinges’ resignation will be effective on June 19, according to the release. He will be the director of the Bartlett Public Works Department. Brian Schiber will lead the Geneva department on an interim basis, the release stated.

City Administrator Mary McKittrick said Geneva “is grateful for Dan’s service to our citizens and community, as well as for the solid leadership that has contributed to our Public Works Department and senior management team,” according to the release.

“Bartlett is a larger community that presents new challenges and opportunities for Dan, and we wish him the best in this next chapter of his career,” McKittrick said.

Dinges has worked with Geneva for nearly 15 years. He started in 1999 as a civil engineer, and then was promoted to assistant director of Public Works and city engineer. In 2006, he became the director of the department.

A job description for the position is posted at www.geneva.il.us.

The application deadline is June 26. The city is hoping to have the position filled by late summer.
