Are you our next Public Works Director? If you’re looking for an exciting career opportunity where you can have a significant, positive impact on an original and growing small community in Oregon’s Silicon Forest then look no further! 

Salary: $97,660 - $120,109 yearly

The position: 
By joining our team, the Public Works Director can give new strategic direction to the department and work on a large array of exciting projects and developments - including a new Public Works Facility which is currently in the design phase. You will be an integral part of our management team advising the City Manager and City Council, and collaborating with department leadership, staff, and community members. 

Our community: 
North Plains is a small, growing semi-rural city 17 miles west of Downtown Portland on the edge of Oregon’s innovative Silicon Forest, less than an hour from the Oregon Coast. With over 3,400 residents and 160 businesses, our gradual and thoughtful growth over the years has helped to maintain a friendly, small-town atmosphere. North Plains residents enjoy a well-managed inventory of improved streets, parks, bike/pedestrian infrastructure, and water systems, and have easy access to major employers, recreation, entertainment, and nature. 

The Public Works crew is small but mighty with four staff. Most routine maintenance and small capital projects are completed by staff. Larger capital improvement projects are publicly bid and completed by contractors with oversight from the Public Works Director. 

We love serving this amazing community and we are investing in our municipal infrastructure with the goal of becoming a complete community. Our next Public Works Director is essential in helping the City achieve this goal.
