Carlinville Partners with Woodard & Curran for DPW Operations

Published: 7/26/2017

The City of Carlinville, IL has hired Woodard & Curran to handle full-time operations of its Public Works Department as of August 1, 2017. The scope of services the firm will be providing the city includes management and staffing; safety and compliance; facilities operations and maintenance; engineering and technology support; and capital planning.

Carlinville initially began looking for a professional management firm to take over day-to-day operations of the department in the spring of 2015. After developing a Public Works Committee that took three firms’ qualifications into consideration, Woodard & Curran was officially selected as the city’s partner and approved by the City Council in mid-June. This is a large step in a positive direction, aldermen Joe Direso told the Macoupin County Enquirer Democrat. “Our goal through the whole process has been to provide a higher level of service, do it cheaper if we can, and more efficient. We believe Woodard & Curran meets that need and they can certainly help us with our future endeavors with our water project, human resources, technology, and safety and maintenance programs,” Direso said.

Woodard & Curran will retain the department’s full-time manager and 13 full-time employees.

Woodard & Curran provides contract water and wastewater operations to 43 clients across 15 states, including South Sangamon, IL; Monmouth, IL; and St. Charles, MO.
