The director of the Department of Environmental Management, Frank DeMarco, recently submitted his resignation from this position to transfer back to the Department of Public Works, effective Aug. 1.

DeMarco, a licensed professional engineer, will return to his former position as the floodplain manager in the Engineering Division.

“I feel fortunate to have had a man of Frank DeMarco’s background on our team. I appreciate his willingness to tackle the many challenges of the department and I respect his decision to spend more time with his family,” Kenoi said. “We look forward to working with Dora Beck in her new role as acting director of the Department of Environmental Management.”
