Listing Summary

The City of Brookhaven, GA is recruiting for a Public Works Director.  The Public Works Director is responsible for the development and maintenance of the public infrastructure of the City including the traditional areas of public works such as roads, drainage, sidewalks and rights-of-way.  The City is focused on sustainability, multimodal transportation and long-range planning.

The City of Brookhaven is in DeKalb County inside the I-285 Perimeter and shares a border with the City of Atlanta. 

The City has thriving neighborhoods, a healthy mix of retail and restaurants, diverse housing, and is premier community in Metro Atlanta.  Brookhaven is a safe, inviting and engaged community, providing every amenity you would expect from a leading community in metro Atlanta.
