County Manager Kevin Tanner has appointed Interim Director Barry Lucas to serve as Water and Sewer Department director effective May 10. Lucas was named interim director in February.
“Barry has done a great job leading the department over the past several months, and we are glad he has accepted the director position,” said Tanner. “Under his management, the County will continue to meet the water and sewer needs of our residents and businesses.”
Lucas served as Deputy Director for the Forsyth County Water & Sewer Department since 2002. In that role, he was responsible for managing all engineering-related activities for the department, including master planning, project planning, project management and construction of all capital improvement projects. Lucas also has managed several programs including development review, the sewer flow monitoring program, easement and property acquisition among others.
Lucas began his service with Forsyth County in 1996.
