OSAGE – Osage city hall today recognized a “changing of the guard” as Brock Waters fully takes the reins as city administrator and public works director from retiring Jerry Dunlay.
For 26 years, Jerry Dunlay has been employed in Osage as public works director. Dunlay delayed his planned June 30, 2022 retirement until a new public works director/city administrator could be hired.
As a transition set about, Brock Waters started in that position September 6, 2022. Meanwhile, Dunlay remained employed in Osage and was paid to mentor Waters for up to 4 months.
The City of Osage today recognized and welcomed Brock Waters as the new City Administrator/Public Works Director. Brock fully replaced Dunlay, who is retiring after 26 years with the City as Public Works Director.
“Today (November 30th) is Jerry’s last day in the office. Happy retirement, and thank you for your many years of service to the City!” the city said in a statement marking the occasion.
Osage is the county seat of Mitchell county in Northern Iowa.
